Prince Harry went into detail about his real feelings following Princess Diana's death. Since the former Princess of Wales died when the Duke of Sussex was just 12 years old, he had a hard time processing his grief. According to Meghan Markle's husband, King Charles was the one who broke the devastating news to him. But even the new monarch did not console his youngest son by giving him a tight hug.

"For all eternity we'd be smiling at her in the darkness, and maybe it was this image, as the flag came off and the coffin descended to the bottom of the hold, that finally broke me. My body convulsed and my chin fell and I began to sob uncontrollably into my hands," he said.

Royal fans would know that King Charles got into an affair with Queen Consort Camilla while she was still married to the former Princess of Wales. But during a previous interview, the king made it clear that his affair only started after he realized that his marriage already fell apart for good.

During their separate interviews, as well as Princess Diana's recorded tapes, the former royal couple shared their marital struggles. The mom of two claimed that her ex-husband was dismissive of her struggles. Despite this, King Charles reportedly took Princess Diana to a psychiatrist in 1982.

"The trouble is one day I think some steps are being made uphill only to find that we've slid back one and a half steps the following day," King Charles reportedly told his friend (via E! News).

In Andrew Morton's biography Diana: Her True Story In Her Own Words, Princess Diana reportedly explained why she decided to suck up King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla's affair.

"If I let it get to me I will just upset myself more. So the thing to do is to involve me in my work; get out and about. If I stop to think, I'll go mad," she said.

But in the end, the royal couple's affair, as well as Princess Diana and King Charles' issues, contributed to their split.
