One of the most famous couples of the century had a very unhappy marriage. It's no secret that Prince Charles and Princess Diana were involved with other people even before they were officially divorced. But the world is also aware how hard Diana tried to keep the marriage alive. She had tried for years to be a doting wife and mother and the perfect Royal role model. But Charles was never really in love with his wife and nobody was really surprised when their marriage fell apart. But how much did Queen Elizabeth do when she found out about her son's affair? And did she ask Diana to divorce Charles?

1Diana was the people’s Princess

The British people were obsessed with Diana. She want just an icon to them, she was almost like a messiah. Never had they seen such an intense philanthropic side to a Royal before and Diana's popularity was often frowned upon by the Royals. It was soon becoming evident that Diana didn't need the Royal family to be in the headlines.

2The infidelity

Diana and Charles were married in 1981 and it hadn't even been a decade before rumours emerged that Charles is having an affair with his longtime friend Camilla Parker Bowles. Unfortunately as he is a Royal and one of the most influential men in Britain, he could get away with it. Charles and Camilla married a few years back, but the British people always acknowledge Camilla to be the reason why Charles’s and Diana's marriages didn't work. It was also reported that the Queen and her husband Prince Philip are aware of Charles's dalliances.

4Diana was always the outsider

In spite of being from an aristocratic family, Diana always stood out from her Royal in-laws. She was kinder, more empathetic and a lot more selfless than her husband and his family. Diana's old letters reveal that she was almost always misunderstood by her in-laws and that she often felt terribly isolated.
