For nobody is a secret the stormy marriage that lived Princess Diana and Prince Charles, the latter has always been pointed out as the responsible for the separation because of his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles, but who was the first to be unfaithful in the marriage?
The then Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer became engaged in February 1981 and married on July 29, 1981. At the time she had just turned 20 and Queen Elizabeth’s son was about to turn 33. The Prince of Wales was almost 13 years older.
Did Diana and Charles sleep together before they got married?
According to the CBS documentary entitled ‘Princess Diana: Her Life, Her Death, The Truth’, Prince Charles and Diana Spencer only met twelve times before getting married, so it is unlikely that they could have had sexual relations.
Apparently the engagement and marriage of Charles and Diana was subject more to the institutional requirements of the British monarchy, than to the feelings of the couple. Buckingham only wanted to ensure the succession to the throne. So said Susan Zirinsky, executive producer of the documentary in an interview to ‘Elle’.
For royal expert Sue McCune Martin, Diana and Charles were not intimate before their wedding.
“Diana had no sexual experience when she met Charles, and that’s one thing that made her a good prospect for the position of the King’s future wife,” Sue said.
Who cheated first in Princess Diana’s and Charles marriage?
Princess Diana revealed in her famous BBC interview that the first to be unfaithful would have been Prince Charles.

Diana also blamed Charles’ infidelities for her bulimia and her tendency to cause herself harm.
But recently the story of Diana and Charles’ infidelities took an unexpected turn. Lady Di’s former bodyguard Allan Peters revealed that the princess was the first to commit adultery.
Peters assured that Prince Charles discovered that Diana had a lover, specifically another bodyguard: Barry Mannakee. Faced with this act of betrayal, Charles would have returned to Camilla’s arms.
Did Diana know that Charles didn’t love her?
