Why Prince Charles admitted to his affair - and how the world reacted

After years of speculation, Charles finally came clean about his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles in 1994 - well, sort of. Omid Scobie – Yahoo UK’s royal executive editor – takes us through exactly why and how Charles finally admitted to his affair. Central to the drama of season five of The Crown, which just dropped on Netflix, the future king’s confession took the form of a two and a half hour long documentary, during which the revelations Charles gave gripped the 13 million viewers who tuned in. Scobie explores how the world reacted to the bombshell admission, how it even threatened the future of the monarchy itself and catapulted Diana’s popularity to new heights.
