While Diana never let her role as a princess keep her away from her boys, her marriage to Charles was falling apart; she was emotionally torn and mentally shattering by all the mistreatment at the hands of her husband. By the mid-1990s, this royal family was on the brink of collapsing. First, Diana and Charles separated, then they officially divorced. No one would have imagined that the dream would end in such an abrupt way. A royal couple that eventually ended up in divorce, it was a first within this royal family of England, that is very conservative and has managed to live with a very dignified way of conduct.
The marriage was not built on the right foundations, as the union was an arranged marriage and not a fairy tale as presented by the British media. So it’s no wonder this marriage ended like this. More often than not, a marriage that is not based on love does not last long. Their relationship was over, and things weren’t going very well. Despite the turmoil Diana was going through, she always made the boys feel her presence; she never neglected them no matter how she was feeling. However, the worst had not yet come for this royal family, for the nation and the world. A tragedy was about to happen to them, and no one saw it coming, not even Charles and the boys.
