Don't know, looks like Diana was tickling Charles.

There's a series of pictures out there that were supposed to have been taken during one of their first Christmas/New Year's holidays together. That 'tickling' one was one of them as well as the one of Diana with the fake breasts. I wonder whether they might have originally been stolen or something, because I can hardly imagine them being released to the public as "What We Did on Our Christmas Vacation".

I can definitely believe that at one time they did love each other, but it wasn't a relationship that would survive as a long term one. IMHO.

I don't know, I think if they had the right amount of help and the press wasn't dancing on their backs, things probably would've been different. The most important thing is they had love, fun and laughter in their marriage. The pictures show that, but there are also stories to go a long with them. Unfortunately, that's not what people want to talk about and it don't make anyone some money.

The biographies that I have read of Charles and Diana, some biased, some not so bad, do state that there was love and laughter in the first three or four years of their marriage. Most point to specific examples.

However, from about 1984 it seems to have gone downhill fairly quickly, pointing to a rather shaky foundation to the relationship in the first place. I do feel that Charles and Diana just weren't suited to each other, temperamentally or in their outlook on life. It would have taken huge amounts of goodwill and desire to change themselves for their partner's sake once things began to go pear-shaped IMO, and ultimately neither were prepared to do that.

Charles and Diana were goofing around at a private banquet, with Diana pretending to strangle her husband. You can't see him but Prince Andrew was nearby, watching.

I remember reading about it when if first happened. People can deny it all they want, but there were moments of real happiness affection and love between the two of them.

Both Charles and Diana claimed there was happiness in their marriage in the beginning. Diana told Ingrid Seward that people would believe that if they saw the letters that they wrote each other. Both Charles and Diana said there was love. If they have both said that, I think that we should believe it.

I don't normally follow or comment on this thread, but thank you so much for all the happy pictures of Charles and Diana. I never knew these existed. As a young girl I was a big fan of Diana, in fact the only time I skipped a class was to watch them getting married! It is good to be reminded that they enjoyed happy times too and I'm sure these are the memories their boys hang onto.

Charles and Diana most certainly had the expectations when they married that they would be married for life and they really did have a idyllic relationship for several years and two wonderful boys. The tough part of a marriage is actual work and compromising and putting the other's best interest at heart first and it was in the day to day problems that discontent arose and couldn't be resolved. It is a common thing to happen in a marriage.

Those happy, golden times are never forgotten.

I can't believe that both of them did not want their marriage to work. I know after her death it was recognized that in the months leading up to it they were on friendly terms.
