There was barely a time when there was a happy marriage between Princess Diana and Prince Charles.
After just 12 dates, the couple got engaged, and when Diana secretly recorded their lives, she discovered that things were far from ideal between them from the outset.
Of her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, Diana was the proudest.
But it wasn’t the thrilling moment that she had wished for when she gave birth to William. Also, when she met her grandson, her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, had some striking first words.
Never decided to marry Princess Diana and Prince Charles
In the blink of an eye, Diana went from commoner to royal when Diana and Charles began dating. It was a lot to handle for her, especially considering that Charles didn’t treat her exactly like a princess. Even though Camilla was already married and he knew he had to make a fast decision if he wanted to find a bride, he still had his eye on Camilla Parker Bowles.
Things went from bad to worse after the two got married.
Charles and Diana had almost nothing in common, and in her notes to Andrew Morton, she once remembered that on the second day of the couple’s honeymoon, any hope for a strong marriage was “dashed”
During the honeymoon, Diana and Charles scarcely talked to each other, paving the groundwork for more awkwardness – and drama – when they returned together to start their royal life.
Princess Diana once admitted that the day after her wedding, she did not talk to Prince Charles:’ We Were So Shattered’
Princess Diana’s information about the birth of William indicates it wasn’t the way she expected it to be.
In their records, Diana revealed that life as a royal was not what it looked on the outside.
And Diana suffered in spite of the hype surrounding the royal partnership. She felt sad sometimes and missed the attention of her husband.
The princess even threw herself down the stairs at one point, when pregnant with William.
Nevertheless, even though she acknowledged that it did not go as she had hoped, the birth of William was exciting for Diana. Diana revealed in her notes, “William had to be induced because I couldn’t take the pressure anymore,”
The other royals, including the queen, appeared at the hospital to meet William – but her first comments about the little boy were a bit strange. “Thank God he doesn’t have ears like his father,” said Queen Elizabeth, according to Diana. The queen seemed to concentrate on her grandson’s presence instead of welcoming William’s birth.
Diana disclosed that the birth of William was planned around Charles’s polo hobby.
Before William’s birth, Charles and Diana were on each other’s nerves for quite a while.
But she was upset that Charles did not allow her to give birth without first checking his polo schedule after she declared she wanted to be inducted.
“When we had William, we had to find a date in the schedule that fit his polo,” Diana said.
“Charles could get off his polo pony,”Charles could get off his polo pony,”very grateful for that!”very grateful for that!
When his mother died, William was just 15, but he had developed a stronger relationship with his father over the years.
