Prince Charles

Charles, Prince of Wales is perhaps best known as the son of Queen Elizabeth II and former husband of Princess Diana. Prince Charles married Princess Diana in 1981, despite the fact she was 13 years his junior. Their marriage was perceived as uncomfortable and glum leading towards their separation in 1991 and divorce in 1996. Diana accused Charles of infidelities with Camilla Parker Bowles, who would eventually become Charles' second and current wife. Currently, Charles' sons William and Harry tend to steal most of the headlines. Princess Diana was killed in a car accident in 1997.
