This is What Actually Happened on the Day Lady Diana and Prince Charles Got Divorced

After more than two decades of their allegedly dirty divorce, some startling revelations have surfaced


In 1981 Prince Charles and Lady Diana got married in the most fairytale sort of manner and their wedding – dubbed as the grandest wedding of the century – was assumed to be beyond perfect by everyone who saw them. Little did everyone know that the marriage was nothing short of misery and unpleasant relationship that they both had to share and 11 years later the dream wedding crumbled into an ugly divorce.

But was it really ugly?

After more than two decades of Diana and Prince Charles’ allegedly dirty divorce – which involves a long period of separation with hatred from both side – some startling revelations have surfaced. And while many may have believed Diana and Charles hated each other to the core and would not have looked at each other’s face on the divorce day, it is indeed otherwise.

About Diana: "Despite the messy split, infidelity and scandals, Diana and Charles did not divorce until four years later, partly because the princess did not want to. Charles was shattered at his estranged wife's insistence she did not want a divorce. He had already taken steps to ensure that Diana would have never been crowned Queen. Charles has said: 'I will never sit on the throne with that woman at my side!' He has told his most senior aides and legal advisers to draw up plans aimed at 'sidelining' Diana before any coronation [in case his mother The Queen dies before his divorce]." James Whitaker, a royal correspondent ■ قالوا عن ديانا: "على الرغم من الانفصال الفوضوي والخيانة الزوجية والفضائح، لم يتم تشارلز وديانا إجراءات طلاقهما بشكل نهائي إلا بعد مضي أربع سنوات من انفصالهما، وذلك ﻷن اﻷميرة رفضت الطلاق منه بشكل قطعي. شعر تشارلز بالانكسار وتحطمت آماله بسبب إصرار زوجته المنفصلة على عدم القبول بالطلاق. فبدأ باتخاذ عدة تدابير لضمان عدم تتويج ديانا كملكة. فقد قال تشارلز: 'لن أقبل الجلوس على كرسي العرش أبدا مع تلك المرأة بجانبي!' وأبلغ كبار مساعديه ومستشاريه القانونيين بوضع خطط تهدف إلى تهميش ديانا قبل تنظيم مراسم التتويج [في حال وفاة والدته الملكة إليزابيث الثانية قبل طلاقه من ديانا]." جيمس ويتاكر، مراسل صحفي متخصص في شؤون اﻷسرة المالكة البريطانية ■ #princessdianaforever #humanitarian #princessofwales #princessdiana #gb #hertruestory #kensingtonpalace #uk #thebritishroyalfamily #theroyalfamily #thebritishmonarchy #queenofhearts #instagood #instaroyal #instalike #di #fashionicon #peoplesprincess #style #glamorous #icon #foreveryoung #uk #الأميرة_ديانا #أميرة_ويلز #أميرة_القلوب #الأميرة_ديانا_لﻷبد #بريطانيا #لندن #قصتها_الحقيقية #أميرة_الشعب

As the result of the divorce, Diana lost her title of Her Royal Highness and this meant she had to curtsy to everyone from the royal family, including her sons William and Harry. However, the Princess got to keep her title of Princess of Wales as per Queen’s wish. Diana also kept all of her jewelry, access to Royal family’s private jets, her apartment in Kensington Palace and heavy sum of more than $30 million as the divorce settlement.
