The marriage between the late Princess Diana Spencer and Prince Charles seemed to everyone like a fairytale.
However, their relationship was a burden and a living nightmare.
Even Prince Charles’ proposal to Diana contained a hint that their marriage will be the most scandalous royal marriage of all times:
When Prince Charles met his future wife Diana Spencer, he was dating her sister while still being head over heels with his current spouse Camilla Parker-Bowles.
In 1981, being pressured by his nation and the Queen to get married as soon as possible, Prince Charles proposed to Diana Spencer who was only 19 years old then and after being on just 12 dates with her.
The couple’s proposal story fairly predicted how catastrophic their marriage would end up.
Diana and Charles’s proposal story isn’t one of those royal proposals you have seen in movies and on TV.
Prince Charles first told Diana “Will you be my wife” and she thought he was joking. She replied to his proposal with “Yes. Okay.”
That’s when a little voice in her head told her “You will never become the Queen, your role will be tough in this marriage. ”She then said “Yes, I will marry you. I love you with all my heart.”
Charles replied to that, “Whatever your definition of love is” and called his mother immediately.
In their first interview, a reporter asked the royal couple do they love each other in a genuine way.
Diana replied, “We love each other very much,” while Prince Charles just said, “Whatever the definition of love is.”
When he said
that, Diana almost started to cry but remained strong, just like she remained
strong in the years of hell she has been through during her marital life.
