Charles ‘may have been seeing Camilla when Di was PREGNANT’
Prince Charles could have been seeing Camilla while Diana was pregnant with Prince William, new secret tapes have revealed.
The Princess apparently revealed to a close friend her husband was meeting Camilla up to four years earlier than has ever been admitted.
And in a further blow she may have even been pregnant with Prince William while her husband was running back to his “true love”.
He and Diana had married in July 1981 and William was born in June 1982.
Yet the claim by Diana’s private dance teacher, Anne Allan, suggests the secret meetings happened between 1982 and 1983.
This is despite Prince Charles’ biography by Jonathan Dimbleby, and Camilla’s autobiography by Penny Junor, claiming the affair was rekindled in 1986.
Ms Allan’s claim, which will air in a Channel 4 documentary which reveals Diana’s secret video tapes, suggests the relationship resumed during shorty after – or before – the birth of William in June 1982.
And as Harry was not born until September 1984, Ms Allan’s account suggests the affair between Charles and Camilla, who had already been sweethearts long before Charles met Diana, was well under way by then.
“She loved Charles, yes, but Charles loved another woman,” Ms Allan says in the documentary Diana: In Her Own Words.
“It’s very hard for any woman when you love someone and you realise that perhaps they don’t love you.
“You have to understand how hard that was to hear – we’re talking 1982-3 when she realised that Charles was seeing Camilla and I just remember being quite horrified.
“I think it made her very sad… devastated… she felt she wasn’t enough.”
Ms Allan gave Diana private dance lessons from autumn 1981 at the English National Ballet.
Recalling Diana’s joy when she fell pregnant with William, she said: “She wanted to give her marriage everything that she could.
“She really wanted everybody to feel proud, but particularly Charles.”
Charles first met Camilla at a polo match in 1979, when the pair instantly struck up a romance.
But because Camilla was not “aristocratic enough”, the pair eventually broke up and Charles joined the Royal Navy.
Camilla then married Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973, to the heartbreak of Charles, before Diana came on the scene.
Diana and Charles married in 1981, but it wasn’t long until the Prince and Camilla gave into their love for each other.
Camilla then divorced her husband in 1995, and a year later Charles and Diana divorced.
Diana died in a horror car crash in Paris a year later, and next month will mark the 20th anniversary of her death.
