But despite her suspicions that during their marriage, Charles and Camilla had an ongoing affair, everyone assured Diana that Camilla was “just a friend” of her husband.
Diana declined to believe it.

“Friends on my husband’s side suggested that I was unstable and ill again and should be put in some sort of home to get well. I was almost an embarrassment.”Friends on the side of my husband suggested that I was once again unstable and ill and should be placed in some kind of home to get well. I was almost an embarrassment.
