Princess Diana was probably the most caring and compassionate member of the royal family, and one of the most loving people the world has known throughout its history. When became an official a member of the royal family, she started to touch the lives of fans throughout the world.
Everyone loved her, and for a very good reason. The woman was very beautiful, and with a heart of gold to go with her great beauty. Still, these are just some of the many reasons why she had the nickname “people’s princess.”
After her marriage to Prince Charles ended, Lady Diana still continued with her amazing charity work, as she gave her love and understanding to people who needed it the most. The mother of two, she raised her sons Prince William and Prince Harry to be just like her in many ways. This means not to take privileges of royal life for granted, and to always give back to others and share with the ones who need help.
However, all of her qualities make people wonder about one thing. If the late princess was such a wonderful mother, why hadn’t she and Prince Charles have more children?
Charles and Diana meet
Diana Prince Charles for the first time when she was just sixteen, while he was actually dating her older sister. Charles is twelve years older than Diana, which means they are an unlikely match, but they started a relationship nevertheless.
After just a few dates, Diana received an iconic sapphire and diamond engagement ring, the same one Kate Middleton currently wears. At just 20 years of age, Diana married Charles in what was a lavish royal wedding, and almost instantly became loved by people of England, as well as fans everywhere else.
A future king is born
On June 21, 1982, Prince William Arthur Philip Louis came into the world, and the royal family welcomed a future king. They could not be been happier. Buckingham Palace did not announce the name a week passed, which is different from how the Royals approach the welcoming of new babies today.
Everyone expected and knew that Diana would be a perfect, loving mother, and that is exactly what she was to William. She was devoted as much as possible to little baby Will, and made sure he was always well taken care of and that he had everything he needed for a happy and healthy infancy and childhood. However, she could not help but think that a sibling is missing from his life.
Prince Harry makes his debut
On September 15, 1984, William got a brother, and Prince Harry Charles Albert David was born. This meant England officially has an “heir and a spare”. Diana was now the mom of two boys, and everyone witnessed how much motherhood came naturally to her.
Both of her children adored her, and Kensington Palace had tons of space for many more little royal children to run about and play. Naturally, royal fans wondered if she and Charles thought the same.
Why didn’t they have more kids?
In a perfect world, it would have been great if the pair had welcomed more children. However, their seemingly great marriage quickly turned for the worse. At that time, Prince Charles was in a secret relationship and affair with his now-wife Camilla Parker Bowles. The two married some years after Diana’s passing.
Fans and the royal family resented the future king for this, as it ultimately broke their marriage. As Diana’s butler states, she knew her marriage was about to end and that she would never become a queen. Charles thought he did what was needed of him as he already had two sons, and pursued a relationship with Camilla.
Diana probably did not wish a third child because she knew she was heading towards a divorce. The fans must have wished for William and Harry to have more siblings, but they are still happy and thrilled with the two handsome and loving princes Charles and Diana gave them while their relationship was still good.
