It is well known that Princess Diana was quite unhappy in her marriage with Prince Charles; just one day before the wedding she found out that he was having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.

Lady Diana became a member of the Royal Family through her marriage with Prince Charles in 1981. It was recently revealed that she was not 100% happy with the decision of getting married with Prince Charles, but then everything became worse after she found out that he was actually having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. Lady Diana actually learned about his affair one day before the wedding with Prince Charles.

According to royal experts, Lady Diana was told about the affair only one day before her wedding to Prince Charles. She had found a gold bracelet with the initials G and F., which make reference to Gladice and Fred, the secret nicknames of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. On the wedding day it became apparent that the marriage of the two was not under a good star, and actually some video recordings showed Charles desperately trying to keep eye contact with Camilla, who was among the wedding guests.

Charles had returned to Camilla directly after the vacation with Lady Diana, who reportedly said it was the worst moment of her life. But one day Lady Diana and her rival met at the birthday party of Camilla's sister. There Diana confronted Camilla with her knowledge about the affair and asked Camilla for a private conversation. Then she told her that she knew exactly what was going on and Camilla replied that Princess Diana had always had everything he wanted, and Lady Di said: "I want my husband."
