The famous interview Diana had on Panorama was the one that exposed it all. She out and loud blamed Camilla for her marriage falling apart, making over 23 million people glue themselves to the TV screens.
In 1995, the divorce was finalized, stripping Diana of her royal title and turning Charles available once again. Tragedy would hit the family and the entire British nation not too long after with Diana’s catastrophic accident that ended her life.
The Beginning of the End
No one can say when things began to crumble down for Charles and Diana's marriage. Was it the age difference? Was it the fact that Charles wasn't completely over Camilla? Or was Diana growing up and trying to shed a strong light on her individuality, something almost impossible as a royal?
The fact that both Charles and Camilla were married to other people didn't stop them from exposing their passion for one another, making the Windsor household a little crowded. Diana did eventually confront Camilla, however, the latter replied by saying that Diana had everything she wanted. Everything but her husband.
There Was No Hiding Away
The day came when speculations became facts, and one phone conversation between Charles and Camilla was what eventually made their marriage collapse. There was no going back, and the relations between the Prince and the Princess were on the verge of a breakdown.
During the 1990s, Prince Charles's diaries were published, revealing all of his unfaithful ways. Adding on to that, Diana's medical condition was documented, too, painting her in a very different light than what she usually reflected.
First Step Towards Eternal Love
So who is this mysterious stepsister hiding away from the spotlight, never revealing her real truth? Still, in 1995 Camilla, surprisingly or not, filed for divorce. Charles and Camilla continued to meet under the radar as if 15 years hadn't flown by.
After what the royal family had been through, the last thing they needed was more attention. Charles kept his relations with Camilla away from the public eye, however, he did introduce her to his boys.
No Need for Hiding
Four years later, in 1999, Charles and Camilla exposed their love to the world. The public's reaction was one thing to handle, however, the queen's reaction was a much bigger deal. At that point, Queen Elizabeth refused to acknowledge her son's choice.
More than a year later, the queen would accept to be present in the same room with Charles and Camilla. And when she did eventually do so, it was her way of silently approving.
