The life of celebrities has always been the source of the biggest news. Every now and then, the little and big details of their life make its way to the public glare and end up as a subject of discussion for many days, weeks or even month unending.
The marriage of prince Charles and princess diana is perhaps one of the most popularised celebrity marriages of all time. it equally ended as one of the most heartbreaking and totally disastrous ones. Even years after the unfortunate death of the princess of wales 21 years ago, details about her celebrity marriage with prince Charles and the nasty divorce and unfortunate accident still spark public interest anytime they come up.
In fact, the finger pointing still continues long after Diana’s death. Many people still fault Prince Charles for having an Affair with Camilla Parker Bowles which eventually led to the break-up of the most sought after a marriage of their time. but according to new emerging information from Diana’s personal trainer Jenni Rivett, Diana never really wanted the marriage to end the way it did. According to her
“She loved Charles. Given the choice, she would have stayed and tried to make a happy marriage,”
She stated that Diana married for the right reasons which was love and she didn’t ask for any of the things that happened to her.
“She loved Charles. She married for the right reasons. She married for love. It wasn’t her that asked for all of this. It was sprung upon her. She wasn’t the one that wanted to separate or have a divorce.” She said.
Rivett explained that Diana felt hurt by the way things turned out just like anyone else would.
“She wanted to be the Princess of Wales and the Queen of people’s hearts. She wanted to be a loving mother, which she was, and a loving wife, I think she just felt hurt, as you would,” Rivett continued. “It was just one thing after another.
She had to be such an ambassador for Britain and everyone adored her and loved her and she was still the mother of the future king. Why should she lose her title. ”
Diana’s feeling about the prince’s affair with Camilla was very clear. “Well, there were three of us in the marriage, so it was a bit crowded.” She had said.
Rivett said Dian loved her sons, prince William and Harry and as the boys got older and became like her friends and counsellors she began to enjoy life a lot more again. When Prince Charles affair was discovered many people frowned at it and latest revelations now reveal that even the Royal family were not in support of it and were on Diana’s side.
This was revealed in letters from Prince Philp and Queen Elizabeth II addressing to their daughter-in-law addressing the matter.
“We never dreamed he might feel like leaving you for her.” The letter read. The Royal couple called their son “silly” for risking “everything with Camilla”
“We never dreamed he might feel like leaving you for her,” Philip said. “I cannot imagine anyone in their right mind would leave you for Camilla. Such a prospect never even entered our heads.”
The Royal couple made it clear that they do not approve either their son or Diana having lovers outside their marriage. Their letter wrote:
“We do not approve of either of you having lovers. Can you honestly look into your heart and say that Charles’s relationship with Camilla had nothing to do with your behaviour towards him in your marriage?” he continued before signing off the letter with “fondest love, pa.”
21 years down the lane and a lot of dark shadows still hang around this sad story. It’s hard to imagine how Diana felt at the time. But revelations like this proves that indeed it must have been a hard time for her.
