16. Diana And Charles’ Marriage Was Doomed From The Start

On July 29, 1981, Diana was a bride who was about to become a Princess. However, days before the notorious wedding date, Diana reportedly told her sister that she should back out. She stated to her sister, “I can’t marry him, I can’t do this, this is absolutely unbelievable.” However, the wedding went on, but not without more imperfections. Diana started to stumble over her words during her vows. Instead of calling her future husband, “Charles Philip Arthur George” she called him “Philip Charles Arthur George.”

However, Princess of Wales, Diana, was not the only one who was struggling with the wedding. Prince Charles also had his struggles. A little over a decade later, while the two were still married, Charles admitted in a biography that he was forced into the marriage with Diana. He stated that it was his father, Philip, who made sure the pair got married, no matter how Prince Charles felt. In 1996, the marriage ended, and the two went the separate ways. Unfortunately, Diana would pass away during a car accident in 1997.
