Prince Charles told Diana he Didn’t Love her 1 Night before The Wedding

Although it has been over 23 years, the unexpected devastating death of Diana hasn’t been forgotten. In fact still new discoveries are being made to shed light on her tragic death.

Three-person-marriage

“At this point, Diana even thought about not going to the wedding,” said astrologer Peggy Thornton. Diana had stated in an interview with Martin Bashir of the BBC in 1995 that their marriage with Charles was a “three person-relationship”. In that interview, Diana Spencer said that both she and Prince Charles had other relationships during their marriage.

They knew it from the start

Judging by the documentaries made over their marriage it was obvious the marriage wouldn’t work. From the point of their engagement there were signals it would end the way it did. Prince Charles first saw Diana at a period when he was dating her older sister. During that time Diana was a 16-year old young girl. During an interview right after their Wedding Prince Charles said when asked how he felt about Diana: ”She’s a verry joyful attractive young girl.”


Diana: Her True Story–in Her Own Words, $10,99

The sensational biography of Princess Diana, written with her cooperation and now featuring exclusive new material to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death.


They didn’t know eachother very well

After a while they decided to get engaged. At that time Pricess Diana had the title of ‘Lady’. When they had set their first step towards their marriage in 1981, they had only seen eachother 13 times. Most of those rendez-vous were during events or in the company of other people.

That traumatizing answer

The news of their engagement had taken the world by storm. As a tradition Prince Charles and Diana gave an interview after news had come out about their engagement. During that interview Diana was asked the question: ”Are you in love” on which she replied ”Yes we are in love”. But Prince Charles answered rather surprisingly.. Reporters who’ve followed the Royal Family for many years claimed that that particular answer traumatized Diana.

‘What does love mean..’

Prince Charles replied to that question the following way: ‘What does love mean..’
Princess Diana later stated during an interview that she found it very strange the way Prince Charles answered.

They married in 1981

Prince Charles and Princess Diana married in 1981 with a prestigious ceremony. They had two kids which ofcourse you all know: Prince William and Prince Harry. But the couple have only been happy for a very brief period. Prince Charles could just not forget about his one and only true love Camilla Parker Bowles.

A new life

The famous couple divorced in 1996. Maybe she would have a new joyful life full of hapiness but the fatal accident took that opportunity from her. A book published about the life of Prince Charles because of his 70th birthday claimed that Charles wanted to end the relationship before the stage of marriage, however he didn’t end it to avoid a media scandal.

9 Strange Things You Didn’t Know About These Celebrities

Every single person has something which makes him/her unique in a kind of way. This could be a certain ritual before going to bed, the way you organize the items in your fridge or closet or simply the way you brush your teeth. So why are we always so surprised to find out these geeky or somewhat strange things about celebrities? Maybe it’s because we idolize them so much that it seems funny that they also can have corky habits.. Well we’ve kept you waiting long enough so here is the list! We were baffled by each and every single item on this list hope you enjoy it as much as we did.


1. The Strangest Thing Daniel Radcliffe had to do for a role was to have his butt waxed.

The Harry Potter superstar Daniel Radcliffe admits as a gentleman he had his bottom waxed for his role in ‘Equus’ back in 2007. During an interview with EMPIRE magazine he said: ‘When I first did Equus I was very self-conscious about arse hair, so I made the ill-fated decision to have it removed via a process called sugaring’.

For those of you who are not familiar with this technique, believe us we weren’t either, it’s a method which involves a thick paste composed out of: water, sugar, lemon juice and honey. This paste needs to be applied to the unwanted hairy area whereafter it needs to be pulled off.

“It was f***ing painful”

Daniel Radcliffe, EMPIRE magazine

Well we don’t doubt the citation above..

2. Emma Stone worked a super random job before she moved to LA

We all heard stories about famous actors working as waiters before or flipping burgers but this one could never be guessed.

The famous hollywood actor worked in a bakery especially for K9’s. Yes, she made yummy treats for pets.

“Pup Tarts,” she said

“Pop Tarts, but for dogs. And Pupcakes. Then there was a kind of dog Oreo made with carob and honey. A mom would come in and buy them for her kid because she thought dog Oreos were healthier.”

Emma Stone, Vogue magazine

3. Zendaya actually means ‘To give thanks’

Zendaya, whose name derives from the Shona (a tribe in Zimbabwe), meaning to give thanks.

4. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz wrecked a wall to get a statue in their home.

Did you know that these two are profound art fanatics? They even have teared a wall down of their house to have a statue added to their collection.

5. Reese Witherspoon would have been a pediatric cardiologist.

Reese, the daughter of two doctors: Dr. John Draper Witherspoon and her mother Dr. Betty Witherspoon, “could have been a doctor if she wanted to” her mother has said. The Oscar winner attended Stanford University before dropping out to pursue a career in acting.

6. Evan Rachel Takes Sage and Tiger Eye With Her Whereves She Goes. The reason is to be Protected From Evil Spirtis.

Not only HBO’s Westworld is she a badass but also in real life the actress is prepared to fight demons. The 29-year-old told Cosmopolitan UK that she doesn’t go anywhere without taking some sage and tiger’s eye with her to help with “cleaning demons out of places.”



If you’re into that type of stuff you propably now that tiger’s eye wards off any type of hex or negative witchcraft. Burning sage supposedly cleans a room of negative energy.

7. Transformers hottie Megan Fox had a Marilyn Monroe tattoo she later had removed.

The reason Fox had the tattoo was because she “empathised” with her. The actress says that she was literally on of the first people she saw on television. Every time she heard her voice while growing up she would cry, she adds: “I wouldn’t know why when I was younger, but no have my own theories. I’ve just always empathised with her.”

“She was disturbed.. I do not want to attract that kind of negative energy in my life.”

Megan Fox

She later had it removed because “She was a negative person, she was distrubed.. I do not want to attract that kind of negative energy in my life.”

8. Sarah Paulson has flight fobia, she must talk with the pilot before take-off.

Paulson suffers from a severe case of flight fobia so much so that she insists on speaking with the pilot before take-off. Just to see if the pilot is up to the ask and to calm herself. ”I will not fly unless they let me into the cockpit to have a little word with them before we go,” said the actress at Late Night with Seth Meyers. Paulson added that some pilots even joke with her by saying that it’s their first day flying. One even whispered her name over the air traffic control station in an attempt to scare her (”Saaaaarraaah”). ”I just thought.. Focus on giving our coordinates!”.

”I will not fly unless they let me into the cockpit to have a little word with them before we go”.

Sarah Paulson, Late Night with Seth Meyers.
So it’s not just the fear of flying. Sarah Paulson talks real-life phobias.

9. Charlie’s Angels Actress Lucy Liu Claimed She’d Been Intimate With A Ghost.

Back in 1999 Lucy Liu said during an interview with US Weekly that while she was trying to take a nap on her futon: ”some sort of spirit came down from God knows where and made love to me.”

She added: ”It was sheer bliss. I felt everyhting. And then he floated away.”
Lucy Liu isn’t the only celeb who claims to have experienced some kind of sexual internaction with a floating being.

Anna Nicole Smith and Dan Aykroyd have also admitted to have experienced similar interactions. Creeeeeepy…. These interactions are also known as Spectrophilia, a sort of hallucination that has it’s first occurence registered back in the 13th century.

”Some sort of spirit came down from God knows where and made love to me.”

The famous muscled Thor-actor Chris Hemsworth did not approve Luke Zocchi to find love on The Bachelor. He didn’t just not approve.. he threatened to fire him!

Luke told Nova 96.9’s Fitzy & Wippa that he in fact was offered the role for The Bachelor, however buddy and boss Chris Hemsworth didn’t want to hear a single thing about it.

Chris may have stopped Luke from finding love but the 37-years old muscled fitness guru seems to be doing just fine in the love department. After 13 years of being single Luke said: ‘I have finally gone and got myself a girlfriend. It took a pandemic! She’s a Swedish backpacker’.

As for Chris his marriage with wife Elsa Pataky is still going strong, even though Elsa confessed that it’s ofcourse not always easy. “It’s funny that people think of us as a perfect couple,” she explained in an August interview. “No way. It’s been ups and downs, and we still keep working at the relationship”.

How to get rid of blackheads

Girls we’re not recommending to use these on your man as we all know we get a lot of pleasure out of tormenting them with our fingers when we pop out their blackheads! I know it may sound disgusting to some of you but I’m sure there’s a study which shows how many of us actually do this to our men!

But what are blackheads exactly?

Blackheads are small, dark abrasions which appear on the skin, in particularly they appear mostly on annoying and clear to see spots such as the face or neck. Blacheads are a form of acne but they can show up without having other features of acne present.

The most common skin disorder in The United States is acne. It affects at least 50 million people per year.

What is the cause of blackheads?

Blackheads are formed when the hair follicles on your skin gets clogged or plugged. Follicles contain a single hair follicle and an oil which is called Sebum. Sebum helps to keep the skin soft. When dead skin cells and Sebum come together in a hair follicle a bump, referred to as comedo, will be formed. When the skin over this bump stays closed a Whitehead will be the result, however if the bump stays open exposure to air will make it appear black, thus a blackhead is then born!

Some skins are more likely to be the victim of these vicious blackheads. Some of the factors are summed up below:

  • Oily skins
  • Irritated hair follicles because of dead skin cells
  • Increased hormonal changes causing excessive oil production which can be caused during menstruation, while taking birth control pills or simply because of the changes a body goes through in the teenage years.
  • Drugs: Lithium, androgens or Corticosteroids.

What are possible Blackhead treatments?

Treatments without prespriction

At grocery stores, drug stores and online a whole variety of acne medication can be bought without a precription. These treatments usually come in the form of creams, gels and pads who’m need to be directly applied on the skin. These measures work by killing the bacteria and forcing the skin to shed the dead skin cells. These drugs can contain the following: resorcinol, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide

prescribed medication

If the above named over-the-counter drugs do not work for you prescription medication can prove to be the key. When it comes to form a significant problem a topical retinoid like tretinoin (Refissa, Atralin, Tretin-X) or Tazoretone (Tazaroc, Avage) can do the trick and remove the blackheads successfully.

Are there home-remedies for blackheads?

Next to the remedies than can be bought at grocery and drug stores there are a some solutions which can be considerd as ‘home-remedies’. Comedo extractors can be bought in most pharmacies and online. This tool will kind of looks like a spatula with a small opening can produce enough pressure from the sides of the comedo to get rid of the plug clogging the follicles. However be cautious while appying this pressure, the patient is obviously not a trained dermatologist and can easily cause damage to the skin. Pore strips and vacuum suction are also succesfull remedies for removing comedos.
