Nowadays I see a lot of Prince Philip in Harry, and Harry has Charles's close-set eyes.

So I briefly saw that Hewitt is making the rounds again.

And a very wizened and melancholy figure Hewitt presents. Not that I'm particularly sorry for him. Like Burrell his life seems to have stopped in some measure since 1997.

James Hewitt and Paul Burrell tried to jump on the Diana bandwagon to take advantage of their relationships with her after her death and their actions backfired on them. Hewitt was especially slimy when he had the nerve to try to sell her private letters to him. That was exceptionally low.

Why do people watch these things? I have watched one interview iwht Hewitt, I think that as someone who knew Diana, who was her lover, there was some point ot hearing a bit of what he had to say about their relationship. And I do feel a tiny bit of sympathy for him because I think that he had some feelings for her and she did at times "use him". . but still his behaivour was terrible in outing their affair and in going on talking about it over and again to make money

PRINCESS Diana’s former lover James Hewitt was last night reportedly fighting for his life after suffering a heart attack and stroke.

The 59-year-old was given emergency surgery and doctors gave him a “slim chance” of survival, according to reports.

The former Army officer is now said to be recovering.

This must be awful for James's elderly mother and his siblings. Heaven knows he has been criticised for his past actions re Diana but a heart attack AND a stroke are massive traumas to undergo. I hope he makes a good recovery. He's not very old.

No matter what the personal opinion is of Mr. Hewitt (I actually don't really have one myself), I'm hoping he has a complete recovery. 59 years old is way to young to suffer a heart attack and a stroke at the same time.

Sadly not that uncommon. You have a pretty good risk of a stroke within the first month after a heart attack (risk is for up to a year). Something like 15% risk with in three days. If you have pre existing issues, can elevate it. The article says he was dealing with pre existing illness at the time which likely increased that chance, depending on what it was.

Hopefully he makes a full recovery, for his and his family's sake.

Charles knew of Diana’s affair… and didn’t care: The 1987 photograph that showed the Prince joking with James Hewitt - who had been sleeping with his wife for a year

  • James Hewitt was the one man to profit from Diana and the only one to whom she publicly declared her love
  • Richard Kay and Geoffrey Levy say that Charles 'didn't much care' about the affair
  • They add that this was 'because he himself had returned to the bed of Mrs Parker Bowles'

Of course he knew about her affair with Hewitt...they were both aware, IMO, of whom the other was involved with.

I agree. I still believe there was some kind of agreement between them about this "topic" ...

Yes I'm guessing there was. Hardly the first couple to have this type of arrangement.

Of course not. Charles didn't care about Diana's affair provided she chose a man who "knew how to behave" and was discreet. Alas Hewitt didn't.

Anyone care explain?
*did Charles and Diane openly discuss hewitt affair? Something like Charles: "ok bring your lover this weekend. I will not be home"
as I understand they had an "unspoken agreement" but what is it meant? Did Charles talk to Diana about hewitt? did charles say hewitt's name in conversation?
Their unspoken agreement is so bizzare to me.

Basically, I think it boils down to what was an unwritten way of being in the aristocracy and that is the concept of an "open marriage". Couples never divorced as the titles and the estates and the prestige were something that both wanted to hold onto in their world and when a marriage wasn't working out, the common practice was for each partner to have their own, separate private lives that was OK as long as it was done discreetly.

Camilla and Andrew Parker-Bowles, I believe had this kind of an understanding. APB was in no way faithful to Camilla during their years of marriage and the "open marriage" avenue worked for the both of them. Its also well known that Charles' Uncle Dickie, Lord Mountbatten and his wife, Edwina had very separate intimate relationships during their marriage.

We will never know what transpired between Charles and Diana about this concept and how they felt about it and what they discussed or didn't discuss but I would think that once they both knew that the marriage was, in all respects, over between the two of them, that Charles would not expect Diana to be faithful if he, himself, wasn't. The big thing that threw everything into chaos was how it all ended up in the press and in the public eye as a free for all battle between the two of them.

This is just my guesstimation of how to answer your question.

I agree that they knew, but I don't believe they openly discussed it.

They just more or less went their own ways. Charles didn't care about Hewitt; Diana did care about Camilla, but she soon realized there was no winning that war.
But it was more probably an unspoken agreement about other lovers, rather than an open discussion, imo.

Agreed. As the marriage deteriorated, Charles spent his time at Highgrove and Diana lived at KP. They had very little to do with each other and words were probably kept to a very bare, civil minimum for the kids. They were what is called single marrieds each with their own separate lives, personal calendars and very rarely interacted unless they absolutely had to. The time for discussions had long passed.
