Prince Charles had Diana erupting in ‘absolute glee’ as British public slammed royal heir

1432

DIANA was delighted to see the British public not wanting Prince Charles as heir to the throne, a royal commentator reveals.

The presenter told the audience: “If you want to see King Charles and Queen Camilla as the future heads of our monarchy, hold up a blue card.

“If you don’t, then please hold up a red card.”

A sea of red cards was lifted by the audience after the presenter asked the question.

“And that looks like a sea of red – a pretty clear message the King of Wales,” the presenter said.

Katie Nicholl, author of “The New Royals”, commented on the archive images on Channel 4, revealing: “You see the audience almost unanimously voting red.

“You know, against Charles and Camilla.

“I do remember being told by a close friend of Diana that she watched that programme with absolute glee and also wanted all of her friends to call up and make sure that there was a sea of red cards on the TV and in studios as well.”

The affair was made public by the press at the end of the 1990s.

In a videotape recorded by Peter Settelen in 1992, Diana admitted that by 1986, she had been “deeply in love with someone who worked in this environment.”

Diana later exposed Charles’s affair with Camilla in a book by Andrew Morton, “Diana, Her True STory”. Audio tapes of her own extramarital flirtations also surfaced.

Prince Charles then went on to marry Camilla at Windsor Guildhall in 2005, becoming the first member of the royal family to marry in a civil ceremony in England.

Prince Charles’ popularity has also rocked in recent months as a string of accusations has hurt his standing as the heir to the throne, with the latest accusing him of accepting donations from questionable donors.

The Prince of Wales faces fresh controversy over the funding of his charity by a controversial billionaire Qatari who reportedly donated €3million in cash. Scotland Yard has launched an investigation into the cash-for-honours scandals amid accusations of promising to secure a knighthood and British citizenship for a Saudi donor.
