Take a Look Back at Prince Charles and Princess Diana's Engagement Photos

As The Crown's fourth season follows this famous relationship, we took a look back at that iconic pre-wedding photoshoot. After just six months of dating, Prince Charles proposed to Lady Diana Spencer on February 3, 1981. The pair then marked their historic engagement with an extensive photoshoot, taking place on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. The king-to-be and his new fiancée also gave an engagement interview, which ended up being greatly impactful for the future Princess. "We had this ghastly interview the day we announced our engagement,” Diana said in Diana: In Her Own Words “And this ridiculous [reporter] said, ‘Are you in love?’ I thought, what a thick question. So I said, ‘Yes, of course, we are,’ and Charles turned round and said, ‘Whatever love means.’ And that threw me completely. I thought, what a strange answer. It traumatized me.” As The Crown's fourth season charts this complicated and difficult marriage, we took a look back at where it all began. Keep reading for the couple's beautiful engagement photos, which certainly prove that not everything is what it seems.

Queues for the bathroom as long as those for Michelin-starred restaurants. Sinks filled with ice and beers. Half-crushed paper cups on windowsills. For some reason, always liquorice-flavoured rollies. House parties are wonderful because 90% of the time they overdeliver. Usually, one dreads them – and then...

When it comes to housework, ‘clean enough’ is fine for me

A friend of mine recently told me she cleans her home in stilettos.
