Avid fans of Princess Diana were not too happy when they saw what Camilla was wearing during one of her first public outings as Prince Charles’ new wife.
Everybody knows the love triangle between Prince Charles, Princess Diana, and Camilla Parker.
Prince Charles and Parker had always been friends and she was often photographed with the royal couple at the time.
All Cute All The Time suggested that as Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ marriage struggled through the years, Prince Charles’ secret affair with Parker flourished.
Princess Diana grew the courage to confront Parker at a party. At the time, Princess Diana had already been married to Prince Charles for nine years while his secret romance with Parker was already in its seventh year.
Despite her efforts to confront Parker and stop the affair once and for all, she was unsuccessful. The pair still continued with their illegal relationship.
In 1996, Princess Diana finally ended her marriage with Prince Charles. With this, she lost her official title as “princess,” which meant she was back to being Diana Spencer.
Apart from the title, she also had to give up royal privileges, as well as gifts.
In 2005, Prince Charles and Parker finally were married. As she was officially a part of the Royal Family, Parker was given on the same gifts Princess Diana received during her wedding.
One specific gift caused quite a riot amongst Princess Diana fans. The controversial gift was a family heirloom.
During her marriage, Princess Diana was often seen and photographed wearing The Prince of Wales Feather brooch.
The brooch had been passed down from Queen Alexandra to Queen Mary, and to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen gave Diana the brooch as a gift that fondly says “welcome to the family.”
Diana always wore the brooch whenever she could. Unfortunately, with her divorce, she had to give back the family heirloom.
Later on, every Princess Diana fan was shocked and slightly enraged after they saw Parker dawning the same piece of jewelry.
According to the Daily Mail, Prince Charles was adamant for his new ‘bride to wear the family heirloom simply because of its connection with the successive princes of Wales.’
