The British royal family, and the world, have not forgotten Princess Diana even 26 years after her tragic death. Her marriage to Prince Charles was far from happy, with their first public fight occurring during a pheasant hunt in 1989. Despite this, they continued to cheat on each other.
In June of 1994, Charles admitted to marital infidelity in a television documentary without mentioning the name of the woman he had been unfaithful to. However, it was Princess Diana’s interview with Martin Bashir on November 20, 1995 that was the final blow to their relationship. Filmed in her sitting room at Kensington Palace, Diana revealed intimate details about royal life and her own struggles with postpartum depression and bulimia. She also admitted to cheating on Charles with army officer James Hewitt. During the interview, she declared that her marriage to Charles was over. “There were three of us in this marriage,” said Diana, referring to Charles’ secret relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles. The interview was conducted in complete secrecy and the equipment was smuggled into Kensington Palace. Tragically, Diana died in a car accident just two years later.
On November 20th, both James L. Haven and Charles Hettrick patented their invention of the children’s toy we now know as the yo-yo in 1866
