Date November 15, 2018 15:41

Details of Princess Diana's unhappy marriage are still as popular as ever, despite the fact that Prince Charles has been happily married to Camilla Parker Bowles for many years, and Lady Di' passing dates back more than two decades. It is no surprise since her ex-husband is the possible future King of Great Britain, and she was the nation's sweetheart.

Diana spoke of some shocking details of their relationship in candid interviews and for biographies, while others have started to be revealed only after her death, thanks to Paul Burrel, her former butler, and, it seems, her confidant. It's difficult to gauge how accurate and true this information is, since the only proof of it is the butler's memories. Here are only some of his shocking confessions.

A little over a year before, the popular publication Daily Mail reported that Burrel was supposed to reveal in a new documentary how exactly Charles was responsible for the eating disorder his first wife suffered from, as well as for the escalation of their family crisis after Prince Harry was born.

According to unconfirmed data, after his son was born, Charles set off to the theatre, having made a bad joke prior to that. The butler suggests that Diana was afraid that her husband was possibly involved in plotting her murder. The Princess' mother also harshly criticized her poor choice of men.

It's up to you whether or not to believe Burrel. According to Tom Bower's bookRebel Prince: The Power, Passion, and Defiance of Prince Charles, a few years after the Princess' death, her ex-butler's house was searched. The police subsequently found many possessions that used to belong to Lady Di, including items of clothing, photographs and negatives, expensive photo frames, paintings, china, and even personal notes allegedly given to him for storage. It makes you wonder if she would have given him her signature look, if she had the chance. It's a good thing that at least Lady Di's luxurious jewelry was passed down to her daughters-in-law.

In 2018, Charles celebrated his 70th birthday. Even though Burrel has occasionally disappeared, only to reappear in the world's media landscape, he didn't let it go unnoticed. As Daily Star reports, he considers that the future monarch is no longer of an appropriate age to take up his mother's duties, just as Lady Di once supposed. Whether she really thought this is most likely to remain another of Diana's enigmas.

Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth II, despite delegating some of her duties, is taking her time parting with her title and passing on the reins of government into anyone else's hands. We should note that, at 92, she possesses an extraordinary work capacity and a clear mind, which allows her to maintain her position. You must remember that Her Majesty's mother passed away at the age of 102 back in 2002, which gives us reason to believe that her elder daughter might also have excellent health and longevity. And this is exactly what we all hope for with such a remarkable woman.

The public is always eager to discover scandalous details of the lives of celebrities and public figures, more so when they are fashion icons and a gold standard of femininity. But do you think Burrel should raise the ghosts of the past in order to reveal such intimate moments to the public – that is, if they even happened – about the long-gone 'People's Princess'?
