"Camilla said something really unusual. 'Well, it's all right for you Diana, you've got two wonderful boys," claimed Wharfe.

Diana famously said during a TV interview that there were "three of us in this marriage."

Despite her struggles, Diana focused on her well-being, royal duties and raising her two boys before she tragically died in a car crash in August 1997.
