Prince Charles embarrassment: Duke exposed major wedding ‘red flag’ during engagement chat


PRINCE CHARLES demonstrated a major “red flag” during a chat regarding his engagement to Princess Diana, according to a royal commentator.

During Channel 5’s documentary ‘Diana – the interview that shocked the world’, royal commentators Bidisha Mamata and Dickie Arbitor analysed a short clip of Prince Charles and Princess Diana discussing their engagement. Ms Mamata stated that some of the comments Prince Charles made would now be classed as a “red flag.”

In the clip Prince Charles said: “I am amazed that she has been brave enough to take me on.”

The royal couple are then asked: “I suppose you are in love?”

Princess Diana said: “Of course.”

The Prince of Wales replied: “Whatever in love means.”

Ms Mamata said regarding the incident: “If you are a woman watching that you are like ‘red flag, red flag, run like the wind’.”

Mr Arbiter said: “I think for the Prince of Wales it was a bit embarrassing to say ‘yes I am in love’.

“So you can’t fault the man for saying what he did say given that they are not brought up to express emotions.”

But Ms Mamata interjected: “It turned out he was having a full blown love affair with someone else.”

Last month Prince Charles was warned by the CEO of Republic that his “eccentric and controversial” public statements surrounding areas of Government cannot be unsaid when he is King.

Republic is an organisation that campaigns for the abolishment of the monarchy and for the Queen to be replaced by an elected, democratic head of state.

Graham Smith, told that the Prince of Wales has made it clear that he wants to be a different type of monarch to his mother Queen Elizabeth II.

Mr Smith said: “If you ask Prince Charles’s spokespeople, they always say it will be different when he is King and he won’t be outspoken when he is King.

“But he has made it clear that he wants to be a different type of monarch, you also cannot suddenly unsay what he has said.”

The Republic CEO added: “You name it he has been talking about it in one way or another over the last 40 years.

“A lot of it is eccentric, a lot of it is just plain wrong, a lot of it is controversial and certainly at odds with what governments and voters would want.”
