Camilla Parker-Bowles’ ‘thug move’ to Diana after engagement
Prince Charles and Camilla have been married for 16 years, but their relationship stretches back much further. They first met way back in 1970, and dated before Charles left to serve in the Royal Navy. However, Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles while he was away and Charles later married Diana, Princess of Wales. Charles and Camilla were never too far away from one another, however, and are believed to have rekindled their romance in 1986, while both still married.
Diana was all too aware and famously confronted Camilla at a party, saying “I know exactly what is going on between you and Charles, I wasn’t born yesterday”.
In December 1992, Charles and Diana’s split was formally confirmed by then-Prime Minister John Major.
Just a few weeks before, a transcript of a tape recording of a telephone conversation between Charles and Camilla was published in the Sunday Mirror.
The tape, which included a rather memorable conversation about sex, later turned out to be snippets of several conversations that had been spliced together.
Diana, according to royal author Penny Junor, was “not well during those years from the late Eighties to the mid-Nineties”.
Camilla received harrowing phone calls in the middle of the night.
