At the time, the marriage was dubbed a “fairytale”; sadly, though, history would prove that assessment wrong. Indeed, it later transpired that the relationship was troubled almost from the very beginning. For example, a single callous comment from Charles about her figure, combined with the pressure of being a royal wife, led to Diana developing an eating disorder. And that was just the start.
In fact, although her image as the perfect princess remained intact, behind the scenes Diana was suffering terribly. She cut herself with razor blades to maintain a feeling of control and, at one point, even threw herself down the stairs while pregnant with her first child William. These dark details, however, were kept secret from the public at the time.
