Prince Charles thought he was “living dangerously” when he admitted to adultery in a TV interview in 1994, a letter has revealed.
Charles admitted to being unfaithful to Princess Diana with Camilla, who is now the Duchess of Cornwall, in an interview with Jonathan Dimbleby, two years after the couple had separated.
In a letter which is being sold at auction next week in Derby, he thanked a friend for writing to him after she had seen the programme.
He wrote: “I was enormously grateful for your very kind letter following that television programme the other day. I suspect it was what is called ‘living dangerously’, but it seems difficult to avoid nowadays! Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed it and managed to remain fully awake for two and a half hours!”
