CAMILLA'S TEARS; Charles phones Tom for explanation over drugs.

CAMILLA Parker Bowles broke down in tears when her son Tom - Prince Charles' godson - confessed to using cocaine, it was revealed last night.

But Charles' initial anger at the reckless behaviour of Tom, who is close to Prince William, quickly turned to concern for Camilla and her wayward son.

In a later talk with William, 16, he said he could make up his own mind about his friendship with film publicist Tom. With Camilla at his side, Charles had made a 15-minute phone call to Tom, 24, in Cannes, France, where he is working at its film festival.

The Prince wanted an explanation of the newspaper story.

Tom - cautioned for drug possession in 1995 - was very apologetic . A friend said the Prince's first concern was Camilla, who "has been through enough".

Charles thought Tom was irresponsible, but "wanted him to know that he has his support".
