It was basically a mismatch from the start and I think the only good that came of it are William and Harry.:)
I agree, I think most people can agree that Charles still had Camilla on the brain and poor Diana didn't know any better. It is a shame that things turned out the way they did. Diana would be doing a lot of good work.

It's hard to believe that it was 24 years ago today that the "fairytale" wedding of Charles and Diana took place. Of course, as we all know, there was anything but a fairytale ending. But, in spite of all the fighting, the tears, the ugly rumours, the affairs etc., there were some good times, as I hope these pictures show ...

Laugh at the expense of PDiana`s misfortunte. those should be punished as well
Personally, if Diana was as kind and compassionate as everyone says she is, I don't think haunting, cursing and vengeance would be too high on her list lol! :)

Where did you read about the staff laughing at her when she was vomiting? When did it happen? That is very sad. :(

Thank you for the photos.

I have been a big fan of Diana for a long time. In the last few years, however I read and watched many documentaries about Diana and I don't believe anymore that she was really this innocent young girl who was a victim of the royal family. I have believed for while that there was no love in the marriage since the very beginning, but now looking at the pictures above, I guess, I was wrong. It looks like that they were happy in the first years of the marriage. I am starting to believe more and more that all she did actually was a good theater.

I don’t blame her for the divorce. In any marriage that ends, it is always both sides fault.

I am glad to see happy pictures of Charles and Diana. I just hope that we all stop laying blame on one side or the other. There are always two sides to every story and the truth is usually somewhere in the middle.

I'm about the same age Diana was when she married, and I just can't imagine how she coped with any of it! But I think it seems they were once very very happy, and it's such a shame things went the way they did.

I remember so well being with my fiance, psychic/medium Kenny Kingston, when he made the prediction during lectures and in the media that the marriage of newlyweds Charles and Diana wouldn't last: he also said Diana would never be Queen and Charles might likely never be King. He said there would be an indiscretion that would cause a breakup of the marriage. At the time, he got boos from audiences because they believed in the fairy tale romance as did most of us. I personally asked him not to make the prediction because I believed they would stay married! I think Diana loved Charles. Sure, she may have been flattered that a supposedly future King was interested in her - that might have added to the appeal. But I think she really loved him. Someone at this forum suggested she was full of "theater"? I suggest that would be Charles...he seemed like he loved Diana, too - yet we now know he was really in love with Camilla. So I think he was a better actor than Diana could ever be!! Why did Diana stay with Charles? Well, two little boys were one good reason!

My sentiments exactly Ennyllorac! I must admit I am pretty tired of hearing people put the blame on one party, while implying the other party is completely innocent. I prefer to think that, more or less, both Charles and Diana are equally responsible for the collapse of their marriage. I know this is a simplistic view, but let's face it, no one, apart from Charles & Diana, will ever know exactly what happened in their relationship.

You know hwat I have no problem putting ost of the blame on Charles. He was the man. h eshoudl have stood up and made the marriage work. He shoudl have dropped camilla and given all his attention to Diana. Yeah that seems a bit unrealistic, but it was his duty.

While both have to work at it in a marriage, Charles was totally incapable of being a married man. He was too selfish to share his life with Diana. Thus, Diana's problems went even more crazy!
