Charles and Diana were a train smash and should never have married

Charles and Diana were a "train smash" and shouldn't have married each other, a royal expert has claimed.

Penny Junor made the remarks during a new ITV documentary which explores the life of the new monarch.

The documentary called Charles: Our New King, partly highlighted how many people didn't believe that Charles and Diana were a match.

Journalist Junor believes that he had second thoughts about tying the knot to Diana and showed a key sign at the alter.

She said: "I believe that on his way down the aisle, Charles did glance across at Camilla with a slightly wistful look on his face.

"I think that Charles probably knew that he was making a mistake but it was too late.

"He didn't have the courage and goodness knows who would have had the courage to call off a wedding of that magnitude.

"And Diana likewise, shortly before the wedding she said to her sisters, 'I can't go through with this' and they said too late Duch your face is on the tea towels."

She added: "The marriage between Charles and Diana was a train smash.

"These are two people who should have never have married one another."

The royal commentator said Charles desperately needed someone who could "support and encourage" him.

Charles and Diana announced their split in 1992 and their divorce was finalised in 1996.

Diana sadly died in a car crash in a road tunnel in Parris alongside her partner Dodi Fayed in 1997.

Charles went on to marry Camilla Bowles in 2005.

Speaking about the couple in Vanity Fair, Junor previously said that Camilla was the only person who could lift Charles out of his dark days.

“He was in the depth of depression when his marriage was failing, and she pulled him out of that and made him laugh again," she said.

“She treated him like a normal person, as she had when they were together, and if ever he behaved badly, or was selfish or thoughtless, she wasn’t afraid to tell him so.

“She was a proper friend.”

She continued: "I think Camilla has transformed Charles.

“He is happier with her than he has ever been. She gives him confidence and the support he desperately needed throughout his life and never truly found elsewhere.”
