An estimated 750 million around the world watched as Diana Spencer said “I do” to Prince Charles in 1981.
The couple were all smiles in front of photographers, but the public would come to find out that Charles’ heart was already tied up with a woman he’d met in 1970.
Behind the scenes Princess Diana was becoming increasingly concerned about his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles.
The pair had dated before he met Diana, and split when Charles was sent away to serve in the Royal Navy.
Nevertheless, Charles and Diana got married at St Paul’s Cathedral, and set off for the first part of their honeymoon at Balmoral.
According to a royal expert, Charles sent an “unbelievable” nod to his ex while on honeymoon.
Understandably, it left his wife and future mother of his children heartbroken.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said: “Almost unbelievably Charles wore cuff links with the C and C, meaning Charles and Camilla.”
In the Channel 4 documentary, Diana: In Her Own Words, the princess talked about the cufflinks he had brought to their honeymoon.

Diana said: “On our honeymoon, cufflinks arrive on his wrists.
“Two C’s entertained like the Chanel C. Got it. One knew exactly.
“So I said ‘Camilla gave you those didn’t she?’ He said ‘Yes, so what’s wrong? They’re a present from a friend.” And boy, did we have a row.
“Jealously, total jealousy. And it was such a good idea the two Cs, but it wasn’t that clever.”

Despite the difficult start to their marriage, Charles and Diana remained married for 15 years.
They also welcomed two sons – Prince William and Prince Harry.
But their relationship continued to deteriorate, and the couple both admitted to having extramarital affairs.
Charles and Diana officially separated in 1992, with the divorce made official in 1996, a year before her traffic death.
Meanwhile, Charles and Camilla made their public debut as a couple at a party in honour of Camilla’s sister.
They married in a civil ceremony in Windsor in 2005.
