Their divorce was considered a fairly ugly one as it played out in the spotlight and affairs were revealed. However, Prince Charles reportedly opted to try and defend his actions following news that he and Princess Diana were divorcing in 1992.

In the documentary, “Charles: The Destiny of a Prince,” it is revealed how both Prince Charles and Princess Diana handled the fallout of their marriage coming to an end, as speculation that he had an affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles continued to grow.

While the documentary states that the information was too much for his wife, who “casted doubt” on how long the affair had actually been going on for, Prince Charles himself tried to justify his actions, stating in an interview at the time that he had tried to “do right” by everyone with his actions.

“It’s not something I went into this marriage with the intention of this happening. Or in any way in a cynical frame of mind. I mean, I’m on the whole, not a cynical person,” he said at the time. “I have, it sounds self-righteous to say so, but I have on the whole, tried to get it right constantly. People scrutinize things, I have always tried to get it right. I had to do the right thing by everybody. It is a deeply regrettable thing to happen.”

The pair’s separation was announced in 1992, and by 1996, their divorce had been finalized. Princess Diana later died in a car accident in Paris in 1997.

Prince Charles went on to marry Camilla in 2005, ten years after her own divorce from Andrew Parker-Bowles.
