The love triangle between Princess Diana, Prince Charles, and Camilla Parker Bowles has been happening for as long as we can remember. When Diana was just 20 years old, she married Prince Charles in front of 29 billion people. Their marriage would lead them down a windy road of scandal.
Just five years after their marriage, Prince Charles and Camilla began their love affair. The marriage between Charles and Diana was still in motion, although the heart-broken princess admitted that “the marriage was a bit crowded between the three of them.”
Their affair continued to last throughout the remainder of Charles and Diana’s 15-year marriage. During her marriage, Diana was an utter wreck. Diana felt as though she could escape Charles and Camilla; it was as if she saw reminders of them everywhere.
Diana even went as far as to stop wearing the wildly popular high-end brand, Chanel, for one very specific reason: the logo.
When Australian designer, Jayson Brundson, once asked Diana why she refrained from wearing the brand: “She said ‘It’s Camilla and Charles.’ It was definitely the timing, it being post-divorce. She would have seen linked C’s and they would have just reminded her of Charles and Camilla."
In Diana’s mind, she only saw two things when she saw the logo: Charles and Camilla. She couldn’t bear to see their letters together so she refrained from the brand entirely.
That’s why when Camilla proudly wore her Chancel pumps out over the weekend, Royal fans immediately noticed the bold move. Fans don’t believe that Camilla wore the Chanel pumps for any other reason than to “stick it to Diana.” She wore the Chanel pumps twice over the weekend.
What do you think about this? Even now, 22 years later, the drama of the royal love triangle continues to stir up conversations.
