This Is The Moment Princess Diana Realised Her Marriage To Charles Was Over
In a new extract from his tell-all memoir, former Royal bodyguard Ken Wharfe reveals when Princess Diana gave up on her marriage to Prince Charles.
The late princess decided she had had enough after Charles was brought to hospital in 1990.
The Prince of Wales was recovering from an accident and refused to let Diana see him, but what he did do, was that he allowed his now-wife Camilla Parker Bowles to visit.
In his book, Wharfe writes: ”Diana confessed to me … with absolute determination, that this was the last straw. Her compassion was wasted on her husband … what the prince didn’t want, the public did”.
”Diana really tried. I remember once after an engagement we arrived back at Kensington Palace as the Prince was getting into his car”.
”When Diana asked if she could come to, Charles dismissed her and said she would be the centre of attention”.
Wharfe went on to say: ‘’In essence there was nowhere for her to go. Diana was desperate, and desperate people often do desperate things.’’
