Here’s How Princess Diana’s Employer Found Out She Was Dating Prince Charles

When she became a royal girlfriend, this status affected her jobs quite a bit. One of Diana’s employers at the time revealed how she found out that her employee was dating one of the most eligible bachelors in the country.

Before Princess Diana married Prince Charles in 1981, she was simply a young woman named Diana Spencer. Diana lived a quiet life with an average job.

She was a part-time nanny for Mary Robertson, an American expat. Diana took care of Robertson’s son, Patrick, for $5 an hour. Diana would do simple tasks around the house such as laundry, dishwashing, and picking up toys.
