The "Wedding of the Century" took place on July 29th, 1981, when Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles and became Diana, Princess of Wales. The wedding was watched on television by 750 million people worldwide.
When Prince Charles visited Althorp, the Spencer Family estate, he met a teenaged Diana, who was instantly smitten with the Prince.
On June 7, 1992, Andrew Morton's book "Diana: Her True Story" was released. Diana had allowed herself to be tape recorded and confessed all of the details of her marriage, including her suicide attempts and Charles' affair with Camilla.
After giving birth to Prince William, Diana became deeply unhappy with her marriage to Prince Charles. His mistress, Camilla Parker Bowles, was a member of Charles' inner circle and became the focus of his attention.
