With what has been said about divorces, children of divorced parents are more likely to get divorced themselves.

Charles was a wimp for not standing up to his parents and marrying Camilla when they were kids.

Ya I know what you mean!. They have grown up around a man who has hurt their mother and abused the laws of love and marriage and has been distant from them all their lives. People grow up to be like their parents it really is true! Like father like son. Now I am not saying they can't be different from their father I am just saying that because of their father they have a tendency to lean on his actions of his life.

I think Charles and Diana were deeply in love when they were married.
But the age difference at 13 years and the fact that they were so different wasnt very good for the realitionship. Diana was only 19 years old, and very naiv (as she said herself), but maybe Charles did not really understand how insecure she was.
I believe he was very proud of her and happy that she was so popular in the beginning, but as their realitionship grew colder he bacame jealous as the only one the press was interested in, was her.
But as many others has stated, we will never know the truth about what really happened, so this is just my wiew on the case. =)

Charles himself never said he was in love with Diana--remember the interview, when asked if he was in love, he said "whatever love is?" He was always in love with Camilla, never with Diana.

I think that in some point, Diana loved Charles.....I think that Charles felt attracted to her..and, he couldn´t marry Camilla, so he chose a very beautiful and carismatic bride...but, Diana was too fragil and Charles too tought.....to, the marriage went away....that´s my opinion..Plus, Charles aways loved Camilla and Diana, surely knew that he loved Camilla when he married her...

She wasn't charismatic when they met--remember how shy she was?

I think that Charles did truly love Diana in the beginning. It may not have been a grand passionate love, but I think that he actually did love her and was committed to making the marriage work in the beginning if only for the sake of public appearances.

But Diana was a very young, not too worldly or mature young girl, she was insecure and I think she because rather too demanding for Charles who had been independent and a bachelor for so long that he probably thought her insecurities were rather annoying and a bit nagging.

Then of course she grew into herself after having her sons. She took a greater interest in the clothes she wore, gained great popularity and began to surpass Charles in public interest - and that probably didn't sit too well with Charles, and thus the tears in an already weak marriage began to fall apart.

Charles was too "old" for Diana

Charles waited too late to get married, women his age had baggage unbecomming to his "stage in life". He had already been around the block and back when he married a shy little young Diana who could barely lift her head when talking to people. Charles should have married when he was younger, to someone closer in age...What was he waiting for? (said in jest)

Truly sad how things worked out. In a way he had no other choice than to marry Diana, she was probably the best of the willing that could be found for him.

May her sweet, sweet soul rest in peace. And to the newlyweds, Good Luck and Best Wishes.

Actually more than the charisma factor I think it was the age difference that really made them grow apart. Love in a marriage is not always about passion. It can be in the form of understanding and respect, and love for children. For Charles, getting married to Diana was a compromise and the fact that they got swamped with royal duties and children so early before really getting to know each other and solidifying what they had, just made them apart.

And as much Diana is considered the innocent and naive party, I believe that her tendency to romantacize the whole scenario was that landed her in this mess. She settled too early, I don't whether it was the parents-situation or the whole Prince-situation, but she was too young and immature at first to deal with the realities of married life.

And later, they really went for divergent paths.

But atleast I am happy that Charles took the step of marrying Camilla. People go on and on about the way he gave Diana a raw deal, We will never know maybe he did, but atleast he had the decency to give the proper respect to Camilla who has stood by him all these years.

He did give Diana a raw deal. She didn't even stand a snowball's chance in hell having Charles love her. Come on, his mistress was in the church when they got married! Then he was wearing cufflinks Camilla gave him on his honeymoon with no deferrence for his new wife.

I don't care what anyone says, you don't (re)start a relationship without ending the one you're in. And by ending a marriage, I mean divorce or death. If Charles wasn't as spineless as he was, the I wouldn't have had an issue about him marrying Camilla back in the late '70s and Diana might have had a happier marriage.

And another thing I've been saying for a long time now. Just because Charles "loved" Camilla, doesn't give him the right to hurt and disrespect his wife, Diana, to humiliate his sons, and to outright flaunt his escapades to Andrew Parker-Bowles. Love doesn't justify hurtful actions. No one has the right to cause other people such anguish on account of falling in-love. He made his bed, he should have laid on it!

As for Camilla, she made the decision to give Charles up when she married Andrew Parker-Bowles, who was Charles' friend, by the way. When she saw Charles get married, she should have closed that chapter and kept it closed. Charles and Diana's marriage becoming "irretrievably broken down" is no justifiable reason for her to resume her affair with Charles. "Broken down" is not the same as divorced. He was not free to pursue a relationship with her, and then again, neither was she! I don't think she thought about her children or Charles' children. Can you imagine being a child and being humiliated in front of the press because of your parents' indiscretions? That your mother was cheating on your father with your god-father?

To me, their marriage seems like a reward for their indiscretions for the past 30 years, for hurting so many people. They made their vows to love, honor, and cherish, and to remain faithful to each other? How long with that one last? Didn't they make that promise before and broke it? Maybe we should all reward adulterers in the future, worked for Charles and Camilla. Heck, maybe people need to have an affair if they're not happy with their spouses and their family lives! After all, Camilla got to become princess and would be a queen and Charles would still be "Defender of the Faith". Faith?! Ha! The hypocracy! Nothing's sacred anymore...

Camilla and Charles a respectful marriage!?!

We all know the classic fairytail marriage between Lady Diana and Prince Charles... Or do we? We will never know what went on between Diana and Charles and personally I don't want to know. That was their personal life that I could never understand. During Diana's marriage with Charles she said she had "tremendous hopes in her heart for him and her" well those hopes we crushed not very long after they said their "I do's." Charles hurt Diana deeply and he never even felt sorry for his indescretions toward his marriage vows. He said that he always cared for Camilla and his love was stocked away not for Diana but for the mistress Camilla. He made plenty of excuses for having an affair but the truth is their is no excuse. He made it clear of how he felt for Camilla and Diana. I think their marriage was a lesson we all should learn from. I personally dislike Camilla but I hope that Charles and her have a happy marriage full of bliss and happiness!??? What is wrong with that picture? I don't think it is fair for the sacred vows of marriage and certainly Diana to have them marry. Diana never had a stable loving marriage that she wished for all her life. Diana just wanted to be loved by somebody much less her husband! Diana deserved a better marriage but for she never got another one!!!!! Yet cheating charles had another one. I think their marriage was sort of a hypocricy! What are they going to do next?! Pretty soon marriage will be a "thing" where people moch. Marriage is about comitting to someone for life and honoring them and loving them and becoming one in the eyes of god!! I loved Diana as our dear princess and I can only imagine what her face must of looked like when she saw Charles marrying Camilla. Charles is loving the very person who caused Diana soooooo much pain and disgression. " This is my opinion and if you get offended in any way I am sorry."

I agree your posts,blondebeauty123

but Prince Charles and late Diana,Princess of Wales got first married in 1981 but both got failures because both had affairs and Charles go see Camilla since Harry's birth in 1984 but Diana dont like it! and Diana got affairs with James Hewitt and lots more with man!

I dont like Camilla lots! because she got homewrecker since the Wales got married in 1981 and she meet Prince Charles at his home and Diana getting pissed off at Charles for that!

but i know that Prince Charles still loves with Camilla i understand for more over 30 years since both met at party and both been still as mistress,companion and affairs and Charles been dating Diana's 2 older sister before Diana.

Charles did tell Diana he wouldn't be the only Prince of Wales without a mistress. Now that's he married the mistress does that hold true?

No. When a man marries his mistress he creates a job opening.
