Diana, a mere 20 years old at the time, had only encountered Charles a few times. She appeared understandably nervous in the presence of 3,500 attendees in the cathedral and the countless viewers tuning in from home. A report in the Mirror disclosed, that she was already feeling anxious following events from the previous evening. According to a close friend of Diana’s, Charles allegedly confessed the night before that he “did not want to enter the marriage under false pretenses.” Penny Thornton, who had a close professional relationship with the princess, asserts that Charles then informed his soon-to-be wife that he did not harbor love for her.

While appearing on the ITV program The Diana Interview: Princess Revenge, she stated, “One of the most shocking things that Diana told me was that the night before the wedding Charles told her that he didn’t love her…” Thornton added, “I think Charles didn’t want to go into the wedding on a false premise. He wanted to square it with her, and it was devastating for Diana.”

In the book The Duchess: The Untold Story, authored by royal writer Penny Junor, it is asserted that Charles felt the marriage was a mistake but realized it was too late to back out. “Charles was not convinced he was doing the right thing in marrying Diana but there was no way out and, bolstered by the hope that things would be different once they were married, he put a brave face on it.”
