Before he wed Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, Prince Charles was an eligible young bachelor, enjoying a number of high profile relationships, including a brief dalliance with the older sister of his future wife. Beneath the Wales’ fairytale wedding was a marriage marked by infidelity on both sides. Charles resumed a relationship with a former girlfriend, Camilla Parker-Bowles (now his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall). During one intimate, at times sexually explicit, late-night phone conversation between the pair in 1989, Charles was recorded saying he wished he could be Camilla’s tampon. That’s a line he surely must be regretted when a transcript of the call, dubbed “Camillagate” was made public in 1992. Diana later acknowledged her own infidelity, admitting to having an affair with Major James Hewitt in a 1995 BBC interview. Divorce proceedings began a short time later.
