How Camilla Tortured Princess Diana At Her Wedding Day

Princess Diana famously declared that there were three people in her marriage to Prince Charles, with the third being Charles’s longtime love, Camilla Parker Bowles. Based on facts leading up to Charles and Diana’s royal wedding, it seems this was the situation from the start.

In her new biography of Prince Charles, Sally Bedell Smith shares what happened behind the scenes ahead of the big day. Right before the wedding, Diana overheard Charles “murmuring endearments” to Camilla on the phone. Bedell Smith writes that “sensing a threat, she asked Charles if he still loved Camilla. His reply was genuine but ingenuous: he explained that she had been “one of his most intimate friends” but that their “intimacy had ended.” While there was evidence that Charles and Camilla had ended their physical relationship at that time, it’s not exactly what you want to hear right before your wedding.

Charles also decided to buy gifts for a dozen of his close friends, including Camilla, ahead of the ceremony. Bedell Smith explains that “Camilla’s was a gold bracelet personalized with a blue enamel disk engraved with the initials ‘GF.’ The monogram stood for ‘Girl Friday,’ Charles’s nickname for his intimate ‘friend.'” Diana discovered the gift and confronted Charles. Soon after, Diana broke down following their wedding rehearsal. She was “devastated” and recalled “bawling her eyes out” in the car with the “Camilla thing rearing its head.”

If that wasn’t bad enough, Camilla was also invited to the wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral – her then-husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, actually escorted Charles and Diana’s horse-drawn carriage back to Buckingham Palace. Bedell Smith writes that Camilla acted as a disturbing distraction to Diana on what should have been a happy day: “Diana later said she had been so fixated on Camilla that as her father walked slowly up the aisle at St. Paul’s, she raked the congregation until her eyes settled on her nemesis, with her ‘pale grey, veiled pillbox hat.'” Following the procession back to the palace, Camilla and Andrew were noticeably not invited to the wedding breakfast hosted for 120 guests. At least Diana had that..

Diana, Princess of Wales (Diana Frances; née Spencer; 1 July 1961 – 31 August 1997), was a member of the British royal family as the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, the heir apparent to the British throne. She was the mother of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry.

 

Diana was born into the Spencer family, a family of British nobility with royal ancestry and was the youngest daughter of John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and Frances Roche. She grew up in Park House, situated on the Sandringham estate, and was educated in England and Switzerland. In 1975—after her father inherited the title of Earl Spencer—she became known as Lady Diana Spencer. She came to prominence in February 1981 when her engagement to Prince Charles was announced to the world.

Diana’s wedding to the Prince of Wales took place at St Paul’s Cathedral on 29 July 1981 and reached a global television audience of over 750 million people. During her marriage, Diana was Princess of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, and Countess of Chester. The marriage produced two sons, the princes William and Harry, who were then respectively second and third in the line of succession to the British throne. As Princess of Wales, Diana undertook royal duties on behalf of the Queen and represented her at functions overseas. She was celebrated for her charity work and for her support of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines. Diana was involved with dozens of charities including London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital for children, of which she was president from 1989. She also raised awareness and advocated ways to help people affected with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and mental illness.

Royal Feud: Why Prince Charles Won’t Allow Princess Beatrice and Eugenie To Be Pampered

It’s a conundrum that has torn the Royal family apart; should Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie be allowed to work as taxpayer-funded royals, much like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry? This question has reportedly left the Queen’s two sons, Princes Charles and Andrew, at loggerheads.

We reported earlier this week that the Duke of York, 56, wrote a letter to his mother demanding that his daughters – who receive no public funding – should carry out full-time royal duties supported by the Sovereign Grant, aka the people’s purse.

 

It also requested that Beatrice, 28, and Eugenie, 26, be granted better accommodation at Kensington Palace – because they are currently tolerating “small” apartments at St James’ Palace. “Oh, the audacity!” some may snivel.

The Queen is said to have been “stunned” by her son’s proposition and left it to her private secretary Christopher Geidt to sort out. He subsequently raised the issue with Prince Charles – who immediately rejected the idea.

 

The future king’s unwillingness to wrap his nieces in gold-plated cotton wool has allegedly fuelled a rift between the brothers. Charles – whose two sons enjoy the benefits of working as full-time royals – is plotting to carve out a more “streamlined” monarchy.

Condemned as “selfish” in many people’s eyes, Charles isn’t afraid of looking like the villain. Let’s face it, he’s spent the best part of his life as one of the country’s least liked people over the Princess Diana dramas. Not even Voldemort has endured such public wrath. As with his other siblings, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, the heir to the throne has experienced a loving, yet often-tempestuous relationship with his brother Andrew over the years.

Many stories of a feud have emerged in the past, including Charles’ 66th birthday celebrations in 2015 when he and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, held a party in the grand dining room at Buckingham Palace with close friends and family. At the other end of the palace, Prince Andrew spent the evening sharing a low-key supper with a friend in his private residence. Relations between the brothers have been strained for some time, and the fact that Charles did not extend Andrew an invitation did not come as a surprise to friends and courtiers.

While Anne and Edward haven’t been too vociferous about their royal statuses, and have not demanded royal titles for their children, Andrew has demonstrated an intense desire for more. He has been envious, possibly, of the fiefdom granted to Charles in his endless opportunities as heir – allowing him to finance a parallel “court” and see his two sons Prince William, 34, and Prince Harry, 32, enjoy the freedoms, success and money of being working royals. Andrew simply wants the same for himself and his children. Is that too much to ask, Ma’am?

Prince William Talks About Princess Diana

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge was born 21 June 1982 and is the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales. He is second in the line of succession to the British throne, after his father.

William was educated at four schools in the United Kingdom and obtained a degree from the University of St Andrews. He spent parts of a gap year in Chile, Belize, and some parts of Africa. In December 2006, he completed 44 weeks of training as an officer cadet and was commissioned in the Blues and Royals regiment. In April 2008, he qualified as a pilot by completing pilot training at Royal Air Force College Cranwell. He then underwent helicopter flying training in order to become a full-time pilot with the RAF Search and Rescue Force in early 2009. His service with the British Armed Forces ended in September 2013.

Prince William admired his mother Princess Diana and in a documentary he talked about her and said that she was the best mother. In the documentary, he didn’t talk about Charles much. He told that she was great mother. Princess Diana was very famous for her charity and works for the welfare. She worked in the fields of Cancer, HIV AIDS and landmines.

Prince William was asked if he knew about the depth of the work she was doing. He replied:

“I knew a fair bit of it. Mainly because she came back with these stories that were full of excitement and the passion for what she’d been doing and I sort of used to sit there as a sort of you know, surprised little boy at the time sort of taking it all in. I never realized quite how much of impact she had. You could see and feel when she was talking and visiting that she really connects and shares about what she’s doing. I applaud her for all her you know dedication and drive into doing that and I think that it was infectious enthusiasm and the energy she really had that really rubbed on me for causes such as this”

Sarah Ferguson To Remarry Prince Andrew Supports Duke of York In Underage Romance Scandal

Sarah Ferguson is desperate to remarry Prince Andrew and has stooped to defending the alleged underage sexual abuser to try to win The Duke of York and his great wealth back. Sarah Fergie Ferguson was never considered particularly media-savvy, and she’s proving that she doesn’t deserve that moniker with her recent remarks to the press.

Obviously, everyone’s heard about Prince Andrew’s involvement in that gross underage sex scandal rocking the interweb. They’ve also heard rumors of Fergie’s possible romantic reunion with Prince Andrew, but I think everyone assumed that Fergie would refrain from commenting on the sex scandal if the opportunity came up.

But alas, that’s not what Sarah Ferguson did. Even though a 17-year-old masseuse claimed that she was pimped out by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to Prince Andrew multiple times. Sarah is claiming that she’s sticking fully behind her man.

Fergie was cornered by reporters in French ski resort Verbier, and when asked about whether she was supporting Prince Andrew amidst all the allegations, she replied, “The York family is a tight unit. We’ve always been a tight unit. He is the greatest man there is. It was the finest moment of my life in 1986 when I married him. He is a great man, the best in the world.”

Umm.. I get that Sarah sees herself marrying Prince Andrew again in the future, but pretending as though he’s the ‘best in the world’..? Come on, I don’t think anybody here agrees with that, even before the underage sex scandal came out in the media.

Sarah Ferguson desperately needs a new PR person, or she needs to figure out how to stay silent about topics that she has no wisdom about. There’s little chance that Prince Andrew wasn’t involved with this scandal explicitly, but the fact that his name is connected to it is enough to publicly scar his image for life. And yet, Fergie still wants to remarry him…..

What do you guys think? Is Fergie committing career suicide by supporting Prince Andrew so publicly? Or is she just thinking about how she wants to remarry him in the future?

Charles Realized It Was A Mistake To Marry Camilla

Prince Charles is reportedly so wracked with guilt over his affair with Camilla that he is rethinking their marriage. According to new idea the Prince of Wales is ready to walk away from his marriage to Camilla because he can’t live with how much hurt their secret affair caused Princess Diana. He and Camilla have been having problems for years but his guilt over Diana was the last straw.

A royal insider told the magazine he can barely look at Camilla. At the moment Charles feels like their marriage has been a big mistake and he wants to live out his final days without the guilt and she loved what they did to Diana hanging over his head. It’s also reported that Prince Charles is devastated that his sons have opened up to the media about the effect their mother’s death had on them.

He feels like his affair might have contributed to their pain seeing the effect her death has had on their sons has also given Charles a lot to think about and he’s feeling a lot of guilt. The source said it comes after a new poll revealed that the British people don’t want the Duchess of Cornwall as Queen. The Sunday Express reported 67 percent of people are against Camilla stepping into the role of Queen. A further 19 percent don’t she is fit for the role.

It was also reported yesterday that Prince Charles is struggling emotionally. Thanks to the torrent of news items detailing Princess Diana’s life and untimely passing it is fair to say Prince Charles is feeling pretty raw and emotional with a lot of the pain from the past being dredged up again. A source told The Sunday Express seeing story after story recounting what happened during Diana’s frequently unhappy marriage to Charles has brought up a lot of uncomfortable emotions for the Prince the source said.

A media scrutiny around Prince Charles, Camilla and Diana intensifies in the lead-up to the August 31 anniversary of Di’s death, a new poll reveals the British people don’t want the Duchess of Cornwall as Queen. She was the other woman in Charles’ marriage – and Camilla has always struggled to win public favor. The Sunday Express reports 67 percent of people are against Camilla stepping into the role of Queen. A further 19 percent don’t she is fit for the role.

The results have come following a damning documentary aired in the UK, exposing revelations from Princess Diana about her troubled marriage. Camilla’s future title has always been a controversial issue, with Prince Charles said to be staunchly supportive of his wife becoming Queen. At the time of their 2005 wedding, the royal family released a statement which seemed to indicate that wouldn’t be the case.

“It is intended that Mrs Parker Bowles should use the title HRH the Princess Consort when the Prince of Wales accedes to the throne,” the announcement said. However in a telling move, Clarence House now refuses to comment on what Camilla’s title will be if and when Charles takes the throne.

Camilla is the eldest child of Major Bruce Shand and his wife Rosalind Cubitt, the daughter of Roland Cubitt, 3rd Baron Ashcombe. She was raised in East Sussex and South Kensington, and educated in England, Switzerland and France. She worked for different firms in central London, most notably the decorating firm Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler. In 1973, Camilla married British Army officer Andrew Parker Bowles, with whom she has two children. They divorced in 1995.
