Exclusive: Princess Diana’s Interview Shrouded in Secret

Princess Diana was one of the most beloved members of the British royal family, and the British, as well as her many fans around the world, have not forgotten her even 26 years after her death. It is common knowledge that Charles and Diana’s marriage was not a happy one. During their pheasant hunt in 1989, they had their first public fight and then continued to fight until their divorce in 1996. In that unhappy marriage, both Charles and Diana cheated on each other.

On June 29, 1994, in a television documentary, Charles admitted to marital infidelity without mentioning the name of the woman with whom he had committed adultery. However, it was Princess Diana’s interview with Martin Bashir in November 1995 that was the final blow to their marriage. Filmed in Diana’s sitting room at Kensington Palace, it made history for its candid way of revealing intimate details about royal life, her marriage and struggles with postpartum depression and bulimia. She also admitted to cheating on Charles with army officer James Hewitt. During the interview, she declared that her marriage with Charles was over. “There were three of us in this marriage,” said Diana, referring to Charles’ secret relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles. The interview was conducted in complete secrecy and they smuggled in the equipment into Kensington Palace.

On November 20th there were two significant events that changed the world: In 1866 James L. Haven and Charles Hettrick patented their invention of the children’s toy we now call yo-yo; also on November 20th in 1923 Garrett Morgan received a patent for his invention of a three-command traffic sign that would become known as modern traffic light which helped regulate traffic more safely by adding an extra option “Warning” (yellow light) between “Stop” and “Go”.
