Princess Diana was one of the most beloved members of the British royal family, and her legacy continues to inspire people around the world even 26 years after her death. However, it is well-known that Charles and Diana’s marriage was not a happy one. Their first public fight occurred during a pheasant hunt in 1989, and they continued to argue throughout their unhappy union. In that tumultuous relationship, both Charles and Diana cheated on each other.
On June 29, 1994, Charles made headlines when he admitted to marital infidelity on television without mentioning the name of the woman he had slept with. However, Princess Diana’s interview with Martin Bashir on November 20, 1995 in the documentary series “Panorama” was the final blow to their marriage. Filmed in Diana’s sitting room at Kensington Palace, she revealed intimate details about life within the royal family, her own infidelities, and her struggles with postpartum depression and bulimia. During the interview, she admitted that her marriage with Charles was over.
The princess’s candidness during this interview shocked many people and marked a significant moment in royal history. Despite being conducted in secrecy, it is remembered as one of the most revealing interviews about life within the palace walls. Unfortunately, just two years after this interview, Princess Diana died tragically in a car accident on August 31st 1997. Her memory lives on through her incredible legacy and enduring impact on people all around the world.
