Princess Diana’s whispered comment that first revealed troubles with Charles


In the lead up to Prince Charles's wedding to Lady Diana Spencer, the world couldn't get enough of their love story.

The bachelor prince was finally settling down and his wife-to-be was everything everyone had hoped for the future king.

The 20-year-old bride was beautiful and came across very well in her engagement interviews, creating a whirlwind of excitement ahead of the big day.

But just a few days before the Royal Wedding, the young Diana made a whispered comment to a well-wisher that was the first indication that maybe things weren't quite as perfect behind the scenes as everyone hoped.

On Thursday, July 23 the couple attended a very, very wet and rainy garden party at Buckingham Palace for people with disabilities.

As is traditional with the summer events, the couple made their way along lines to chat to some of the guests and thank them for coming.

Diana stopped right in front of the Daily Mirror's feature writer John Edwards.

Speaking on a new Channel 5 documentary Charles and Di: The Truth Behind their Wedding, he said: "There was a great humour about, an interest in the people she was talking to.

"She stopped right in front of me, we were only a few foot apart, and somebody said to her 'good luck darling'.

"'Thank you very much', she said, and then she put her hand over her mouth and she said 'there was a terrible row last night between Charles and me. It had been his stag party'.

"In that girly way of hers she repeated it.

"What the row was about she didn't go in."

John then rushed back to the newsroom and the next day the story was the Mirror's front page.

The headline read: The Royal Tiff.

The story began: Lady Diana Spencer joked yesterday about a few cross words from her husband-to-be on his stag night.

Chatting to a group of guests at a Buckingham Palace garden party, Lady Diana said: "Where's Prince Charles. Oh, there he is. He was very cross with me last night.

"If he comes over here, ash him why."

The Prince preferred to talk about the weather.
