In her speech session with Peter Settelen which occurred between 1992 and 1993, Princess Diana openly talked about most intimate things from her life and there was a part of her sex life, saying it was ‘very odd’.
When these records were made, the couple married for 12 years, but they weren’t intimate for a very long time.
“Well, there was [sex]. There was. There was. But it was odd, very odd,” she said and added: “But it was there then it fizzled out about seven years ago, six years ago, well seven, because Harry was eight.”
Even when they were intimate, they had sex every few weeks and that’s the moment she realised there was something going on.
“Instinct told me, it was just so odd. I don’t know there was no requirement for it from his case.”
She remembered there was a lady he was seeing just before they got married and that lady was Camila Parker Bowles.
“Sort of once every three weeks and I kept thinking. And then I followed a pattern, he used to see his lady once every three weeks before we got married.”
When late Princess found out she was devastated, but couldn’t do anything about it.
The most painful moment was when she figured out Prince Charles bought Camila a special gift.
“I was still too immature to understand all the messages coming my way. And then someone in his office told me that my husband has had a bracelet made for her,” she said.
“I walked into this man’s office one day and I said, ‘Ooh, what’s in that parcel?’ And he said ‘Oh, you shouldn’t look at that’. So I opened it and there was the bracelet. I was devastated, and I said ‘Well, he’s going to give it to her tonight’.”
Just before Prince Charles was leaving the UK for the five-week tour, she visited him in his study when the phone rang, and it was Camila.
“I was in his study talking to him about his trip. The telephone rang, it was Camilla. Just before he was going for five weeks. So I thought, ‘Shall I be nice or shall I just sit here?’ So I thought I’d be nice, so I left them to it and it just broke my heart.”
All of this led to her having second thoughts about marrying Prince Charles. She knew he didn’t love her, and that was so painful for her, yet she couldn’t call things off, in the end, she was supposed to be the future Princess of the United Kingdom.
“He’d found the virgin, the sacrificial lamb – and in a way, he was obsessed with me, but it was hot and cold, hot and cold, you never knew what mood it was going to be, up and down, up and down.”
She reviled how she even talked with her sisters about it, but they told her it was already late to cancel the wedding.
“I went upstairs, had lunch with my sisters who were there. And I said ‘I can’t marry him, I can’t do this, this is absolutely unbelievable.”
“And they were wonderful and said, ‘Well, bad luck, Duch, your face is on the tea towel…so you are too late to chicken out’.”
Prince Charles and Princess Diana got married on 29 July 1981 in a wonderful ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral in London but ended up divorcing on August 28, 1996.
