Princess Diana and Prince Charles tied the knot in July 1981. A year later, they welcomed their firstborn son, Prince William. In 1984, Prince Harry was born. After years of marital issues, the two filed for separation in 1992. 

The New York Times reported that the Royal Palace took “pains” to convey the split was “amicable,” despite rumors that both Diana and Charles partook in extramarital affairs. 

In November 1992, an “intimate transcript of a 1989 phone call” between Charles and ex-girlfriend Camilla Parker Bowles was released to the public, Insider reports. The then-Prince infamously said “I’ll just live inside your trousers or something,” in the leaked phone calls. 

Two years later, in 1994, Prince Charles publicly admitted to having an affair with Camilla during an interview with documentarian Jonathan Dimbleby, Insider reports. That same year, it was speculated that Princess Diana wore the iconic “revenge dress” in response to Charles’ interview. 

In August 1996, Charles and Diana officially filed for divorce after 15 years of marriage. The divorce was followed by Diana’s tragic death in August 1997. The Princess died in a car accident in Paris, France.
