The airing of royal laundry by Charles and Diana
From the start, the relationship between Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales had been strained, but after the couple separated in 1992, Charles and Diana began to publicly trade barbs about one another’s infidelities. Diana famously told an astounded global audience that “there were three in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.” The ugliness ended abruptly in 1997 when Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris. Charles went on to marry Camilla Parker Bowles, the “third” in the marriage of whom Diana spoke.
