Meanwhile, several other of Diana’s past acquaintances have shared their own takeaways on Diana and Charles’ relationship.

Ingrid Seward, of Majesty Magazine, said that Diana told her both her and Charles sobbed when they signed their divorce papers.

Speaking on the documentary The Royal Family At War, Ingrid said: “She said that on the day of the divorce, she and Charles sat together on the couch and they both cried.

“It was this crazy separation but by the time the divorce was finalised, they were in much better shape.”

The couple had married in 1981 when Diana was just 20-years-old. Divorced by 1996, they shared two sons together, Prince William and Prince Harry.
