Before Camilla wed Prince Charles, she was married to Andrew Parker Bowles, a former British Army officer.
Camilla and Andrew wed in July of 1973 before divorcing in 1995, 22 years later.
During her marriage to Andrew, Camilla welcomed two children; a daughter called Laura and a son called Tom, which means that Harry and William also have a step-brother.
When Camilla and Charles wed in 2005, their family lives were united and the royal brothers gained new family members.
William, Harry, Laura and Tom were all in attendance at the wedding of their parents, and even posed for professional portraits together.
Laura is now an art curator after studying History of Art and Marketing at Oxford Brookes University.
She is married to chartered accountant Harry Lopes, who she wed in 2006. Harry, William and Kate Middleton were all in attendance at the wedding.
Laura has since welcomed three children; Eliza, Louis and Gus.
As for Harry and William's step-brother, Tom is now a food writer and food critic and author of seven cookbooks.
And while you might have already known all this, some people are only just learning about the family members.
This includes one Twitter user, who recently posted: "I've just found out Harry and William Windsor have a stepsister and I'm like, wha'?"
Another person – also clearly not in the know – replied to the tweet with: "How is it possible I or many others don't know this?"
