Charles is said to be “privately furious” following the recent revelations concerning the death of his late wife Diana, Princess of Wales. His son, Prince William, believes that Lord Dyson’s report into how the BBC and Martin Bashir managed to secure an interview was the catalyst that led to his parents’ divorce. A friend of the Royal Family believes the “narrative about Prince Charles has to change”. The friend explained that the “allegations and the interview caused long-term damage to the future king and his household”.
The heir to the throne was also worried about Prince Philip’s reaction when the interview first aired.
In Netflix documentary ‘House of Windsor: Fire, Feuds & Fury,’ royal author Penny Junor claims that Diana needed her husband’s support and that her bond with Phillip would make his father view him in a negative light.
Ms Junor said: “Diana was damaged.
“She needed to feel loved 100 percent of the time.
“Charles on the other hand was a very ‘needy’ young man.
“He felt he was never good enough for his parents – certainly never good enough for his father, his mother was rather absent because she was Queen and what he [Charles] wanted in a marriage was a wife who would support him…Diana was not that wife.
“So it was a really really tragic mismatch.”
The documentary also detailed the amount of support that the Duke of Edinburgh had for Diana.
Anyone that married into the Firm was referred to as the “royal outsiders,” – something that both the Princess of Wales and Phillip had in common.
When Diana and Charles were having marital problems both the Queen and Phillip asked the couple to think about Prince William, Prince Harry and the crown.
Royal protocol within the Firm is that the crown will always be “above everything”.
This meant that personal problems could have no position within the monarchy.

Charles was having an affair with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall which Diana referred to her marriage as being “rather crowded”.
His father was said to be disappointed with Charles’ decisions and this prompted him to write personal letters to Diana.
Ms Junor added: “Diana had terrible mood swings.
“She would have rages, she would cry a lot.
“Poor Charles did not know what had happened – he somehow felt that it was his fault.
“He had been a star all of his life.
“Rule number one is that you never put more than one royal member on a podium because each in their own right is a star.
“Charles had this wife who was suddenly stealing all of his limelight.”
It has previously been reported that the Duke of Edinburgh and Charles had a unique relationship that was sometimes strained.
Their communication was difficult and Phillip was said to be disappointed that his son could not maintain his marriage to Diana.
