Princess Diana reportedly got everything Prince Charles had following their split, according to one of the future king’s former employees.
Geoffrey Bignell, Prince Charles’ former financial aid, recently claimed that the next king had to sell his entire investment portfolio just to fund their “messy split.” The entire process made the Prince of Wales unhappy.
“Princess Diana took every penny he had,” Bignell told The Telegraph. “I was told to liquidate everything, all his investments, so that he could give her the cash. He was very unhappy about that. That’s when I stopped being his personal financial adviser because he had no personal wealth left. She took him to the cleaners.”
Prince Charles’ friends reportedly found Princess Diana’s demands “excessive.” They knew that the divorce would affect Prince Charles financially. Unfortunately, they couldn’t help but part ways because it came to a point that Queen Elizabeth II reportedly pressed them to divorce.
Princess Diana reportedly received $22.5 million and an additional $600,000 for her private office. While this might be too much for Prince Charles, it’s actually just a drop in the bucket for him considering the wealth of the British royal family as a whole.
In related news, it was recently revealed that thought Prince Charles and Princess Diana had the same height, in most photos, the Prince of Wales is made to look taller than his ex-wife. According to Professor Lisa Wade of the Occidental College in Los Angeles, this was done on purpose, but for a bizarre reason.
“This effort to make Charles appear taller is a social commitment to the idea that men are taller and women shorter,” Professor Wade said. “When our own bodies, and our chosen mates, don’t follow this rule, sometimes we’ll go to great lengths to preserve the illusion.”
Princess Diana was also reportedly placed under surveillance by a secret intelligence agency which partnered with “Five Eyes.” They built up a 1,056-page dossier, but it won’t be released because it was deemed “classified.”
“(They are) classified because their disclosure could reasonably be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security,” the report stated.
NSA admitted that they had files on Princess Diana, but they never actively monitored her movements. “Any information that NSA holds that references Princess Diana is purely incidental to its collection,” the spokesman added.
