Do you think Netflix will do it? Scroll on to find out more, and to hear what a royal commentator had to say on the matter...
Now, the rumors surrounding Charles and Diana's true relationship have been rife for decades.

And it was also no secret that Charles himself wasn't the best husband...

The pair announced their engagement in February 1981...

However, regardless of the tension between the pair, they married on 29th July 1981.

Soon after, they welcomed a baby into the world.

Diana threw herself into motherhood.

Lady Di was also known for her extensive charity work and breaking royal boundaries in order to do things her way, which is what gave her the name, the "People's Princess."
But on top of Diana's refusal to sacrifice her identity for the sake of her title...Charles was in a long-standing affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, a woman he had courted before he met Diana but was ultimately deemed as an "unfit match" for the future King of England by the Royal Family.
The dynamic between Diana and the rest of the royal family was certainly no easier, either.Rumors about Queen Elizabeth's distaste for Diana had been rife for years, with sources claiming that she was even "jealous" of the attention Diana drew from the rest of the family.
So, many weren't surprised when the couple officially separated in 1992.

But now, over twenty years later...
