King Charles, blames his secretary for his televised infidelity.

King Charles, blames his secretary for his televised infidelity.

A new book says that King Charles once said that it was his former private secretary’s idea for him to say on TV that he had cheated on Princess Diana.

In 1994, Charles, who was then known as the Prince of Wales, agreed to be interviewed by British TV host Jonathan Dimbleby for a national show. At the time, he had been separated from Princess Diana, whom he had married in 1981. During that interview, he talked about the rumors going around about his relationship with Camilla, the Queen Consort, who is now his wife.

Valentine Low wrote in his book “Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown,” which came out on Thursday, that Charles’s confession did “untold damage” to his reputation. Low also said that it would be the reason why Richard Aylard, his private secretary, would leave his job in 1997.

An Insider asked Richard Aylard for his opinion, but he refused. An Insider asked Buckingham Palace for a comment, but they didn’t answer right away.

As Insider reported, Charles told Dimbebly during the interview that he was “faithful and honorable” to Diana during their marriage “until it broke down irreparably, even though we both tried.”

Low says that people close to the royal family, as well as the general public, did not like what Charles said. In his new book, the author brought up a story that was told in Sally Bedell Smith’s 2017 book, “Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life,” when Charles was asked at a dinner a few months after the interview, what made him confess.

He pointed at his private secretary across the table and said angrily, “He made me do it!”,” said another dinner guest. The story of one dinner guest went, “It was a very unattractive moment,” Low said.

“It would be the beginning of the end of Richard Aylard’s career as a royal servant,” Low wrote. He wrote that Aylard had been hired before to help Diana get used to being in the public eye. He was also given the job of making up for the growing distance between the princess and Charles as their marriage fell apart.

Charles’s confession of adultery, which Aylard confirmed the next day at a press conference where he said Charles was talking about Mrs. Parker Bowles, would do the prince’s reputation a lot of harm, Low wrote.

The author said that from Aylard’s point of view, it was the right thing to do to get Charles to “admit adultery.”

Charles could lie, tell the truth, or try to avoid answering. If he lied, he would definitely be found out at some point. “If he didn’t answer the question, the tabloids would keep digging until they found the proof they were looking for,” Low said.

But Low wrote that Aylard’s argument didn’t matter because his “days were numbered” working for Charles because Camilla didn’t like him. Even though he didn’t leave his job until 1997, Low wrote that his replacement, Mark Bolland, had already been hired and had been told more than once to “get rid of” Aylard.

During an interview with Low, a person who did not want to be named said that Charles’ confession was the last straw in her first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles. In January 2005, she filed for a divorce from him.

“She was very angry about the Dimbleby exercise because it was the real reason why her marriage ended.” Camilla and Richard had a lot of trouble,” the person told Low.
