During her marriage to Prince Charles, Princess Diana felt like a prisoner. She was stuck in a passionless marriage in which her husband loved another woman intensely (Camilla Parker Bowles). But the idealistic Diana, against all odds, never gave up hope.
She was always in love with her husband and decided to make their marriage work.
But a horrific event happened 10 years after their wedding that devastated the heart of the Princess of Wales. For Diana, it was so tragic that she had given up all hope of saving her marriage.
Since she found out about Camilla Parker Bowles, Princess Diana did not want to marry Prince Charles,
Diana was totally excited at first about marrying the prince. But she decided to postpone the wedding when she heard that her future husband was in love with a woman. I can’t marry him,”I can’t marry him,” “This I can’t do.
It is completely amazing.
Princess Diana said that during her honeymoon with Prince Charles, she had visions of Camilla Parker Bowles.
But her sisters listened to her, saying that it was “too late to chicken out.”
And while they made light of the situation, one of the worst times in their lives was their wedding day. “I felt like a lamb on the slaughter,” she said, “I knew there was nothing I could do about it.”
But she was always in love with her groom, despite her fears. She reveals in her biography that “I remember being so in love with my husband that I couldn’t take my eyes off him,” “I really thought I was the luckiest girl in the world.”
Still, Diana kept an eye on Camilla as she walked with Charles down the aisle.
“As I walked up the aisle, I kept an eye out for her (Camilla),” she admitted. “I knew she was in there, of course. I was looking for her.”
The moment when Princess Diana gave up all hope of saving Prince Charles from her marriage
For an entire decade, Diana and Charles had a loveless union.
But somehow, Diana was able to hang on to the illusion that they’d get back together one day. But that changed when she found her husband and Camilla exchanging a stack of love letters.
As Camilla wrote to Charles, “I hate not being able to tell you how much I love you,”
Camilla also wrote about “how much she longed to be with him and that she would be his forever.” as Diana admitted in her tell-all novel. Diana said, “I particularly remember one haunting passage that read, ‘My heart and my body both ache for you.'”My heart and my body both ache for you.
This was the moment she realized her marriage was “doomed.” as her biography recounts.
“Diana realized after reading this correspondence that any hopes she might have harbored for saving her ten-year marriage were doomed.”
For thinking about Camilla Parker Bowles, Princess Diana was deemed “embarrassing”.
It was believed that Princess Diana was mad for harbouring suspicions about Camilla.
According to her tell-all book, because of her doubts, Charles’ friends found Diana “unstable” and “kept insisting that Camilla was just a friend.”
“Friends on my husband’s side suggested that I was unstable and ill again and should be put in some kind of home to get better. I was almost embarrassed.”
But her assumptions were still right, of course, and since 2005, Camilla and Charles have been together.
