A new documentary series on the late Princess DianaThis book contains new information about the night she got married. Penny Thornton, Diana’s former astrologer, opened up about a confession she’d made about Prince Charles. Reportedly, he’d told his bride-to-be a harsh fact about the nature of their relationship the night before their widely-televised wedding that set the tone for their doomed marriage.
New Docuseries Reveals Prince Charles’ Pre-Wedding Confession
ITV’s docuseries The Diana Interview: Revenge Of A PrincessPenny Thornton claimed that Princess Diana had revealed many secrets to her before her death in 1997. One of “the most shocking things” that Diana allegedly confessed to her astrologer had to do with her ex-husband Prince Charles and what he’d told her the night before their wedding in 1981.
Thornton explained, “One of the most shocking things that Diana told me was that the night before the wedding, Charles told her that he didn’t love her.” She continued to add, “I think Charles didn’t want to go into the wedding on a false premise.”
Princess Diana Was ‘Devastated’
Thornton assumed that Charles wanted to be fully open with his soon-to-be wife about their expectations for their marriage. Unfortunately, Diana wasn’t going into the marriage with the same sort of practicality. “He wanted to square it with her, and it was devastating for Diana,” Thornton revealed.
The confession of her groom was so “devastating” Diana was so convinced that she would do the unthinkable for Diana. “She didn’t want to go through with the wedding at that point,” Thornton explained. “She thought about not attending the wedding.” History confirms that Diana was able to marry Charles and remained married for 15 years. They divorced in 1996, a year after her tragic death in Paris.
Here are some previous clues about their actual relationship
While Diana seemed to be quite infatuated with Charles during their engagement period and had made public statements about it, Charles had given hints that the pair were not as infatuated with one another. During the couple’s engagement interview, Charles infamously retorted to a reporter’s assumption that the two were “in love” With an awkward but clear, “Whatever ‘in love’ means.”
Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s tumultuous marriage ended in 1996 amid allegations that Charles carried on an affair with his now-wife Camilla Parker-Bowles. Looking back with all the insight that time has provided, it’s clear that Diana and Charles were never quite the right fit for each other. Whether or not this astrologer is telling the truth about what Diana supposedly told her, it’s always been clear that her marriage to Charles was never based on love. Thankfully the union did produce the two biggest loves of Diana’s life: her sons Prince William and Prince Harry.
