When Charles, Prince of Wales, first met Diana Spencer in November 1977, it was far from love at first sight. The then-heir to the throne was introduced to the future Princess of Wales during a grouse hunt at Althorp, the Spencer family home. At the time, Charles was there with Diana’s older sister, Sarah.

Charles and Diana had a few more meetings after that initial encounter, but it wasn’t until the summer of 1980 that their relationship began to blossom. Charles had been invited to the Spencer family home for a weekend and he and Diana began to spend more time together. During this time, Charles was said to have been impressed by Diana’s beauty and charm, and the two began to develop a close bond.

The couple became engaged in February 1981 and married the following July. However, it is believed that Charles did not love Diana at first. In fact, it is thought that he only proposed to her out of a sense of duty and obligation. It wasn’t until after the wedding that Charles began to truly fall in love with Diana.

Charles and Diana went on to have two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, and their marriage lasted until 1996 when they divorced. Despite the fact that their relationship was not love at first sight, Charles and Diana’s love story is one of the most iconic in history. They were a royal couple who captured the hearts of people around the world and their love was an inspiration to many.
