Charles Quipping “Whatever ‘In Love’ Means” at the Engagement Interview – True
The fourth episode is focused on Charles and Diana’s engagement, including their nervous engagement interview. In the footage, we see a jittery Diana clinging to Charles while a reporter pelts her with questions. As the interview nears its end, the reporter notes that the two look “very much in love.” Diana agrees wholeheartedly, but Charles coldly replies, “Whatever ‘in love’ means.”
It is oddly cruel that it has to be artistic license… right? Nope, that’s exactly what happened. Years later, Diana recalled thinking, “What a strange answer,” and added that it “deeply traumatized” her.
