EAMONN Holmes fears his flirting with Prince Charles’ wife could be making him jealous.

The presenter (62) admitted he told Camilla Parker-Bowles she was his favourite royal every chance he gets.

He said: “I have had the opportunity to meet Camilla privately at functions on a number of occasions.

“She is approachable and incredibly friendly. Not only that, she’s a darn good laugh.

“As I keep telling her, she is my favourite royal, though I’m not sure what her husband makes of that.”

Eamonn hailed the 72-year-old for taking to royal life in a way the late Princess Diana and Harry’s wife Meghan could not.

He also shared his joy that Camilla would take her place alongside Charles when he becomes king.

“Before Catherine becomes Queen Consort, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will have the job,” Eamonn said.

“Recently endowed with the title ‘Royal Lady of the most Nobel Order of the Garter’, she has taken to royal life in a way Diana or Meghan couldn’t.”

Eamonn’s gushing over Camilla comes after Charles (73) poked fun at him over the pair’s flirty exchanges.

The broadcaster, who previously admitted he was an “outrageous flirt”, made headlines in 2014 when he broke royal protocol by embracing Camilla.

He also breached rules by kissing her in 2018.

After encountering Eamonn at a TV station’s headquarters in west London in 2014, she said: “We always meet in peculiar places.”

Eamonn replied, “That’s enough of that”, prompting Charles, who was standing behind the pair, to ask the Northern Irishman: “Where have you been with my wife?”

Four years later, he greeted Camilla by giving her a kiss when she visited the This Morning studios with Charles.

In 2016, Eamonn said of marriage to fellow presenter Ruth Langsford (61): “I’m an outrageous flirt, but we’re safe as houses. We could not be happier, or more secure, in our marriage.”
