Diana, Princess of Wales was once the most photographed woman in the world, and a good portion of those photographs also featured her then-husband, Prince Charles. However, there’s an intriguing detail in many Diana and Charles photos that you’ve probably never noticed. Moreover, what does that tell us about their marriage and the royal family in general?
Princess Diana was born Diana Spencer on July 1, 1961. She had royal ancestry and was the daughter of a Viscount. In other words, she was perfectly suited to becoming the wife of the heir to the throne of Great Britain. What’s more, by 1975 her father had become an Earl and she’d consequently gained the title of Lady.
Although he had dated her sister, Lady Sarah, first, Charles soon fell under the spell of Diana’s considerable beauty. And the subsequent courtship between Diana and Charles was a fairly traditional one. After they’d been dating for about a year, during which time he introduced her to his family, Charles proposed to Diana in early 1981.
