The marriage faced challenges in recent years, notably attributed to the strain caused by the Earl's memoir, A Very Private School.

Despite his professional endeavors as a historian, journalist, and broadcaster, as well as managing the Althorp estate, Charles divulged his emotional struggles stemming from the memoir.

Last year, he sought residential treatment for trauma, a decision influenced by the profound impacts of revisiting his past experiences.

According to the Sun, the discovery of a schoolboy diary dating back to 1976, chronicling the trauma he endured, further fueled his emotional turmoil.

Reflecting on his childhood experiences, including his mother's departure when he was just a toddler, Charles shed light on the profound effects of his upbringing on his adulthood relationships.
