A close relative of the British Royal family has revealed that Prince Charles became jealous of his former wife princess Diana 1981. Lady Elizabeth Anson, party planner and a cousin to the Queen Diana, told People magazine that Prince Charles got jealous of Princess Diana during their visits to Wales in October 1981.
According to Anson, Prince Charles got jealous because he realized that people came to see Princess Diana and his young and beautiful wife was being preferred over him during their visit to Wales. “They did a visit to Wales which was the beginning of, for Prince Charles, realising, Diana sort of metamorphosed into a very, very elegant blonde beauty. They did a visit to Wales which was the beginning of Prince Charles realizing, they’ve come out to see my wife, and they haven’t come out to see me”, said Anson.
Princess Diana’s life changed dramatically after her entry into the Royal Family, she quickly adapted to the new role and became famous among royal fans. He conquered the hearts of the fans and became one of the most discussed and photographed people in the world. She was popular not just because of her style but also her personality.
As Diana became one of Britain’s most-loved royal and the people’s Princess, this sparked jealousy from her husband Prince Charles. Prince Charles never felt secure, he always knew that shy 20-year-old Diana he had married will always overshadow him. And according to Anson, this was one of the reason for end of their marriage in 1996.
Some other sources have also claimed that Prince Charles was filled with jealousy and fears of being outshone by other members of his family. In an unauthorised biography of Charles titled ‘Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles’, author Tom Bower argued Charles has felt usurped by the parents of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
