  • Royal wedding
    It was around the beginning of the 1980s that Charles and Camilla are said to have resumed their romance. Romantic or not, the intensity of their friendship is said to have caused problems with many of his girlfriends and in particular with his future bride – Diana.

    In the run-up to their July 1981 wedding Diana became increasingly jealous of the hold that Camilla had over Charles. She quizzed both family and friends about the nature of their relationship and even threatened to call the whole thing off when she discovered that Charles and Camilla had exchanged “love tokens” shortly before the wedding at St Paul’s Cathedral. One of these gifts – a bracelet from Charles to Camilla – was inscribed with the letters F and G, a reference to Fred and Gladys, their pet names for one another.

    Following a furious row during their honeymoon aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia when Diana noticed that her husband was wearing a pair of cufflinks given to him by Camilla, the Prince decided to cool the intensity of his relationship with Camilla for the sake of his marriage.
