As Junior writes, upon hearing the sad news, Charles said: “They will all blame me, will they? The world will go crazy. We will come across a reaction that we did not even imagine. And she can destroy everything. She can destroy the monarchy. "
Charles's words to some extent turned out to be prophetic: the reaction to the death of a popular favorite was indeed large-scale. It seems that there was no person in Great Britain who would remain indifferent. People brought flowers to Buckingham Palace and left hundreds of entries in a book of condolences.
Many blamed Diana for the death of the British royal family and put forward a wide variety of theories. Perhaps the Prince of Wales was right: some Diana fans treated him very badly due to a relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles. Charles could not be forgiven for the fact that his marriage with Lady Dee was unhappy.
