British Royals who have had a tough time as a member of the royal family
King Edward VIII abdicates the throne of the United Kingdom in agrees to marry the love of his life.
King Edward VIII ascended to the throne of England for a short time after succeeding his father, George V, in 1936. A year later, Charles abdicated the crown to marry Wallis Simpson, a two-time divorcee. Edward was determined in his decision despite strong pressure and the Church of England’s prohibition.
Finally, he had to abdicate the throne in order to marry the love of his life, causing a shift in the line of succession.
Princess Diana revealed up about her turbulent British Royal life.
Princess Diana was the first of her kind to speak openly about the deep dark reality of the British Royal Family. While British Royal members are extremely private about their lives and experiences, Princess Diana was the first of her kind to speak openly about the deep dark reality of the British Royal Family.
She was outspoken about her life as a Brtish Royal, as well as her discomfort with the sudden changes that occurred in her life after marrying into the royal household.
Not only did she address her marital problems in a candid interview with BBC journalist Martin Bashir in 1995, but she also talked of experiencing spells of severe depression after giving birth to her first son, Prince William, and resorting to self-harm.
For a reason, Princess Margaret was titled “The Royal Rebel.”
Princess Margaret was noted for her outspokenness over her life. She moved from being a rebellious personality to a fun-loving soul, violating the rules of royalty and posing a significant challenge to the monarchy’s traditions.
Princess Margaret’s love affair with a married man, Royal Air Force Officer Captain Peter Townsend, became public knowledge in 1953. However, their romance did not survive long, and the couple broke off their royal engagement, believing that they could never be happy in such a setting.
For years, Prince Charles had to keep his distance from his real love.
While many people condemn him for being disloyal to his wife, few people are aware that Prince Charles never got over his old girlfriend, Camilla Parker Bowles, despite marrying Diana Spencer.
Filmmaker Jonathan Dimbleby asks the Prince of Wales whether he has been “loyal and honorable” to his wife, Princess Diana, in a 1995 ITN documentary. The Prince of Wales initially responds, “Yes, completely,” but after additional questioning, he admits to having an affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
After many years of distancing himself from his one true love, the couple married on April 9, 2005.
The many layers of the British Royal Family were revealed by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sat down with popular television host and actress Oprah Winfrey and revealed the manner in which the British Royal ‘Firm’ functions in one of the most highly awaited and shocking interviews of the year.
Meghan Markle spoke out about issues that were not only “concerning,” but also “alarming.” Every comment made by the royal couple reveals the flaws in the allegedly perfect royal life, from members of the royal household having reservations about her baby’s skin colour to driving her to suicidal thoughts.
While the newest interview’s revelations have remarkable similarities to Princess Diana’s 1995 interview, it has once again welcomed new perspectives and questioned the foundations of an age-old institution like the British Royalty.
