Charles and Diana were fairly young and it could have been devastating to them.

Look at how Charles and Diana have had issues with their relationships and Jane and Sarah (from what we know) appear to have stable relationships.

I am 11 years older than my younger sister, our parents divorced when I was 22 and my sister was 11. I remember the good and bad times my sister, all she knows is bad times of my parents marriage.

At least the Spencer children had boarding school so they could techincally get away from the tension in the house.
It appeared that Sarah had some self esteem issues in the 70s when she suffered from an eating disorder. Whether it was caused by her parent's relationship or lack of control in her life I do not know.

This is true and we have no idea of Jane's struggles (if she had any).

My point was that its possible that the age and maturity level of Sarah and Jane might account why they appear to have strong marriages as opposed to Charles and Diana being fairly young and having non successful relationships despite the fact that all dealt with the fallout of the demise of the marriage of Johnnie and Frances.

What I love about these pics is Diana looks and is acting like any other mummy who is coming to see the school play. Talking to the other kids.
Not surprised by this, but love it all the same.
