The Real Reason Prince Charles And Princess Diana Divorced
The shadow prince, finally a monarch
For most of his life, King Charles III has lived in the shadows. He lived as the heir to the throne, preparing for his reign for 73 years in the shadow of his late mother Queen Elizabeth II. As an individual, the media scrutinized his life and character beyond imagination for a marriage gone horribly wrong, burying the man behind the title for no one to be known.
Now that he is King, it is high time the people see who Charles really is!!
People who know the King personally describe him as “a sensitive man” who enjoys gardening as much as he loves reading. An enthusiast of art and intellect, he often indulges in watercolour painting quite skilfully and prefers a countryside lifestyle such as hedge laying more than anything else. Having studied archaeology, anthropology and history at Trinity College, he had very less in common with his parents while growing up. This explains his distant, rather difficult relationship with them, which improved with age.

King Charles III — A Vocal Advocate for Climate Crisis
This side of King Charles III is not new or recent. Ever since his teenage, he fell deeply affected by the destruction of nature caused by the modernization of the world. In an interview uploaded in 2020, Charles can be heard saying that as a teenager, he was deeply alarmed by:
“The destruction of everything … all this sort of white heat of progress and technology to the exclusion of nature and our surroundings, and also this complete determination to defeat nature and to suppress everything to do with it.”
Things are still the same. Speaking at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Charles overtly advocated that the world has already run out of time to tackle climate change.
A critic of controversial immigration policies
Looks like, beyond his tumultuous marriage with Princess Diana, Charles actually has his heart in the right place. He has reportedly been a critic of the problematic immigration policy introduced by Boris Johnson‘s administration where the asylum seekers were sent to Rwanda for processing.
He was reported to call the policy “appalling” in a private gathering.
King Charles III reflected on the “unutterable tragedy” of those who’ve been “forced to flee their country and seek shelter far from home” during an Easter gathering in April.
A known philanthropist — The Prince’s Trust
Founded by King Charles III in 1976, The Prince Trust helps underprivileged youth to get a job, start a business or participate in a community project to create an impact on the neighbourhood. The trust has so far helped more than 50,000 disadvantaged youths to become independent and start their own business through micro-credit small loans. People aged between 11 to 30 who are unemployed, can’t afford education or are the risk of exclusion have been significantly helped by Charles’ vision.
As Charles becomes the King, experts speculate that the U.K. can witness an opinion clash between the monarchy and the government. However, he has repeatedly assured that he has no plans of violating the monarchy’s status of neutrality at all.
