Princess Diana boldly confronted Camilla over affair with Charles at party

Princess Diana "boldly" confronted confront Camilla Parker Bowles' affair with Prince Charles and asked "not to be treated like an idiot", her friend has revealed.

Debbie Frank, the late royal's close friend and astrologer, appeared in ITV's new documentary "Diana" ahead of what would have been the Princess of Wales' 60th birthday.

During the final months of his marriage to Diana, Charles was spending most of his time at Highgrove residence – close to where Camilla lived.

Their relationship had severely deteriorated and the heir to the throne's relationship with Camilla was known to Diana.

And, according to Debbie, she decided to take matters into her own hands at Camilla's sister's 40th birthday by telling her she knew about the affair.

She said: "It's a big act of boldness [from Diana] to be able to confront [Camilla].

"But of course, Camilla is a really unflinching person and I don't think it made any difference at all.

"But it made a big difference to Diana – she needed to get herself together, which she did."

Diana allegedly asked to talk to Camilla alone and stayed "deathly calm" while asking her "not to be treated like an idiot".

Camilla then apparently replied: "But you have everything you wanted, what more do you want?"

The princess was believed to have answered: "My husband."

Diana and Charles' unhappiness in their marriage has been well-publicised – with both admitting to having affairs during the relationship.

Ultimately, their marriage collapsed and the pair officially separated in 1992.

The royal couple went on to divorce in 1996 and Diana lost her HRH title but remained Diana, Princess of Wales.

She tragically died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 along with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed and the car’s driver Henri Paul.

A statue in memory of the late princess is set to unveil next month on July 1 at Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace where Prince William and Prince Harry are expected to attend.
