With the news of the next generation of royal weddings plaguing the media, some people are reminiscing on the nuptials between Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
They tied the knot on July 21, 1981 in front of millions of people around the world, which was dubbed a "fairy tale wedding."
While the couple appeared to be the epitome of martial bliss while in the limelight, things were vastly different behind closed doors.
Their "love story" began after Diana met Charles in 1977, who at the time was dating her sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale. The pair would begin dating in 1980, despite Charles still pursuing his current wife, Camilla Parker Bowles.
Following a quick courtship, Diana would give birth to two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, who were described as her pride and joy.
However, emerging details of a rift in the marriage became prevalent as their marriage progressed.
In an interview with BBC's Martin Bashir in 1995, the princess revealed several intimate details of her relationship with Charles, which included wedding doubts, depression, jealousy, and multiple affairs.
Eventually Queen Elizabeth II had enough and made an unprecedented move in 1995 when she formally ordered the unhappy couple to divorce.
But perhaps their struggling marriage could have been foreseen by the way Charles proposed.
