Biographer Remembers Princess Diana's "Bravest" Moment In Her Marriage To Prince Charles

This August marks the 20th anniversary of the death of the Princess of Wales, known affectionately as 'the people's princess'. When Diana and Prince Charles were married in a fairytale wedding, it looked like the young woman's every dream would come true. The marriage, unfortunately, turned into a nightmare. But even in the depths of despair, Diana showed a lot of spunk.

In 1984, Diana married Prince Charles and said those early years were "some of the happiest years of her life." Just a few years into the marriage, however, Charles began regretting his choice of wife. On the sly, he resumed a relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles, a woman he dated before he began courting Diana.

Insiders say that Diana was always suspicious of Charles and Camilla's relationship. It eventually led to the downfall of the marriage, but Diana didn't let it go down without a fight. Andrew Morton reveals that in a recorded conversation, Diana admitted that she confronted Bowles about it in 'one of the bravest moments' of her married life.

It was 1989, and Charles was attending a birthday party for Bowles sister. Camilla was naturally there as well and was engaged in conversation with the prince and another male guest. Diana approached the trio. Diana showed up unannounced, taking them by surprise.

Diana hadn't even been invited to the party, so her presence immediately evoked discomfort when she interrupted the conversation and said, "OK, boys, I'm just going to have a quick word with Camilla and I'll be up in a minute."

According to the conversation, Diana said the men “shot upstairs like chickens with no heads."

Diana says she was 'terrified', but felt a 'deathly calm' come over her. "The voice inside me had said, 'just go for it'... I said, 'I know what's going on between you and Charles and I just want you to know that.'"

Bowles, according to Diana, replied, "You've got everything you ever wanted. You've got all the men in the world fall in love with you and you've got two beautiful children, what more do you want?"

Diana shot back, "I want my husband... I'm sorry I'm in the way . . . and it must be hell for both of you. But I do know what's going on. Don't treat me like an idiot."

That was the beginning of the end of the marriage, Diana later revealed. Charles gave her hell for confronting his mistress, and Diana was reduced to tears in a terrible argument that night. It marked a 'tremendous shift' in the relationship. After that, she began having affairs of her own and eventually divorced Charles.
