We have already written about the reasons why Queen Elizabeth II ‘put a hit’ on their divorce, and about Camilla Parker Bowles’ life before she became a formal wife of her beloved.

According to one of the biographies, 'Charles At Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams', before the wedding ceremony Charles wanted to break off the engagement, but he never did that. We can understand him: before the marriage, he had seen Diana about 10 times, they had an age gap and an absolutely different attitude towards the marriage and family life. Nevertheless, he decided to marry her under his father’s pressure, according to the information from the docusoap 'The Royal House of Windsor'. Prince Philip wrote his son a letter in which he forced him to steady down and marry Diana or stop any relations with her.

At the same time, there is some conflicting information. In reality, Duke of Edinburgh wasn’t against his son’s relationships with married at that time Parker Bowles. It was said by Lady Di during the shooting of the documentary 'Diana in her own words'. She told that Prince Philip allowed Charles to leave his wife after 5 years of marriage in case they wouldn't have found a common language by that time. It’s really difficult to judge what had happened between Diana and Charles, but formally they separated in 1992, 11 years after their wedding, and legally they got divorced in 1996.

The Daily Mail once announced that family problems between Diana and Charles caused some tension in relations between Philip and Elizabeth II. Both of them were concerned about Diana’s growing popularity and tried to help her. Nevertheless, in some moments, Philip was more categorical and aggressive, while the Queen preferred to allow time to clear the air.

Probably, Philip and Elizabeth played some roles in it. But should the father have forced the son into a marriage, encouraging him by a prospect of letting him get back together with his mistress?
