It is no secret that Princess Diana and Prince Charles have not made a perfect marriage. At first, they seemed like the perfect couple that had come from a fairytale. However, shortly after their marriage, there were rumors (now confirmed) that both Prince Charles and Princess Diana had extramarital affairs. If you associate that with the fact that they always began to distance themselves when they were in public, many fans did not take long to realize that there were certain cracks in their relationship.
However, they had a brief relationship and engagement that led Princess Diana down the hall to marry her prince. She looked so cheerful. This is why so many people are confused why she got a cold feet case just before the wedding. Why did Princess Diana say she can not marry Prince Charles? We know the following.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana were not in love
Prince Charles had Camilla Parker-Bowles dated for the first time in the early 1970s. After seeing each other for about a year, Princess Charles went to the Royal Navy and was away for eight months. Parker-Bowles had a hard time waiting for his return, and when Prince Charles finally returned, he discovered Parker-Bowles was engaged to another man. While Parker-Bowles wanted to start a family with her new husband, Prince Charles had to find a wife and start her own family.
In 1977, Prince Charles met a 16-year old Diana Spencer when he was with her sister Lady Sarah. Apparently, Prince Charles was more interested in Princess Diana than in her older sister, and two years later, when Princess Diana was 18 years old and Prince Charles was 31 years old, they had a romantic relationship. Princess Diana had only been around a few times seen when Prince Charles felt pressured by his family to marry. When he suggested Princess Diana, she and Prince Charles had only met on twelve different occasions.
