Prince Charles and Diana’s Love Story Began with a Grouse Hunt
After all, who wouldn’t want to live in a palace, be adored by millions of fans around the world, and have anything they could possibly ever want? When most people imagine the love story of a prince and princess, they imagine a romantic fairy tale that would make anyone’s heart melt.
It seems like a lifetime ago that Prince Charles and Princess Diana joined the royal family as the picture-perfect couple in love. They had two adorable sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, and, at the time, they were looking forward to being in line to become England’s king and queen. To the world, the two of them couldn’t have a better life.
The story of Diana and Prince Charles’ love
Not everyone is lucky enough to meet, let alone marry, a prince. Although that is exactly what happened for Diana, it’s not as if she met Charles at a fancy ball or another romantic setting that most people would dream of. In fact, their first meeting happened when the late princess was only 16 years old.
Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ wedding was watched by millions
When Charles and Diana got married in 1981, it was one of the most extravagant weddings of all time. Billions of people watched the 20-year-old bride walk down the aisle to her waiting prince, and her iconic wedding gown lives in the memories of royal fans around the world.
A royal marriage ending in divorce
Although fans hoped that Diana and Charles’ marriage would last forever, sadly, things began to unravel within a few years. At this point, it is well-known that Charles had always been in love with Camilla Parker-Bowles, who he eventually married in 2005. Even so, Diana wasn’t in the dark.
She was notorious for wanting to do things her own way and had trouble with the confines of royal life. Fans absolutely adored Diana, and most would agree that they would have loved to see her become queen. However, the marriage ultimately crumbled, and Charles and Diana divorced in 1996.
