When a relationship falls apart, it takes time for life to transition back into normalcy, or as normal as you can be if you're part of the royal family.

While the British monarchy has had its fair share of feuds and scandals, they were typically kept hidden from the scrutinizing public.

One of the largest royal bombshells was the high-profile divorce between Prince Charles and Princess Diana. While there had been whispers about their unhappy marriage, people from around the world were still shocked at the demise of the their "fairy tale romance."

Along with several other digressions, it came to light Charles was engaged in an affair with his former girlfriend, Camilla Parker Bowles. He would later marry the now-Duchess of Cornwall to his family's disapproval, but still strive to have her accepted not only within the royal monarchy, but in the public's eye as well.

But, to what lengths did he go to?

In Rebel Prince: The Power and Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles, investigative journalist Tom Bower reveals two years after Diana's death, Camilla, Charles and his assistant private secretary Mark Bolland came up with a plan to "demythologize Diana by portraying her as a manipulative hysteric," in an effort to raise Camilla's popularity with the public.
