Broadcast in November 1995, the interview with Princess Diana had caused great harm to the royal family and in particular to the father of young William, Prince Charles. On the BBC, Lady Di had indeed accused her husband of infidelity, declaring in particular “We were three, in this marriage” about the prince’s mistress, Camilla Parker Bowles.
