When Prince Charles’s long-term affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles was revealed, Princess Diana received support from an unexpected ally: her father-in-law, Prince Philip.
While reports of the pair’s relationship have been conflicting, letters allegedly written in 1992 by Prince Philip to Diana reveal a softer side of the Duke of Edinburgh, who lovingly signed the correspondence “Pa.”
On this week’s episode of our royals podcast Make It Reign, we’re examining Philip’s letter to his former daughter-in-law. Was Philip surprised by his son’s torrid affair, or did Buckingham Palace know about his son’s dalliances with the now Duchess of Cornwall all along?
We’re also discussing the rumoured letters written to Diana after her public divorce from Charles in which Prince Philip allegedly threatened her life. These letters conveniently went missing after Diana’s tragic death in 1997. Was this an attempt to protect the royal family in a plot to murder Diana?
It’s all here on this week’s episode of Make It Reign!
