In a new book, it’s been revealed that Prince Charles and Diana didn’t know each other that well and that he thought he would “learn to love” her after deciding on her as his wife. The details were shared in Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbably Life.
The book explains that the couple actually only went out 12 times before he proposed, and right after the engagement he left town for six weeks, leaving Diana alone at Buckingham Palace. The biography’s author Sally Bedell Smith explained.
“He was obviously anguished, and he said she was someone I could learn to love. He looked to his grandparents, which wasn’t a love match at the outset and thought if they can do it and build a good marriage then I can do it too.”
The author explained further.
“I don’t see him as a cynical person, he thought he could learn to love Diana as his grandmother and grandfather learned to love each other and had a great marriage. But because of their fundamental incompatibility and the age gap and her emotional turmoil, it was doomed before they walked down the aisle of St Paul’s Cathedral.”
