Diana, Princess of Wales, remains a beloved member of the British royal family and a cherished figure among her many fans around the world, 26 years after her tragic death in 1997. Despite the fact that her marriage to Prince Charles was not a happy one, it is well known that they both cheated during their unhappy union.
On June 29, 1994, Prince Charles made headlines by admitting to marital infidelity in a television documentary without mentioning the name of the woman he had slept with. However, it was Princess Diana’s interview with Martin Bashir on November 20, 1995 in the documentary series “Panorama” that marked the end of their marriage. Filmed in Diana’s sitting room at Kensington Palace, she revealed intimate details about royal life and her struggles with postpartum depression and bulimia. She also admitted that she herself had been unfaithful by cheating on Charles with army officer James Hewitt. During the interview, Diana declared that her marriage with Charles was over and referred to his secret relationship with Camilla as “a bit crowded.” The interview was conducted in complete secrecy and equipment was smuggled into Kensington Palace. Tragically, Diana died just two years later in a car accident.
While much attention has been given to Princess Diana’s personal life and marital troubles, there are other important milestones worth noting such as James L. Haven and Charles Hettrick’s invention of the yo-yo on November 20th, 1866 or Garrett Morgan’s three-command traffic sign on November 20th ,1923 which served as an innovation of existing traffic lights by adding an option for warning signals (yellow light) to regulate traffic more safely.
