Princess Diana revealed the five words Charles said to ruin their marriage

We had no idea.

The divorce between Princess Diana and Prince Charles was one of the most high profile splits in history.

And while there were a number of reasons for the de-coupling, apparently there was one moment where Diana knew it was over.

It has been revealed that Charles said five words to Princess Diana - and that was the beginning of the end.

Diana had just given birth to Prince Harry, and Charles said "Oh God, it's a boy."

Those are the five words.

At the time, Charles insisted that what he said was a joke, but naturally, Diana was hurt by the comment.

Apparently, Diana knew the gender of her baby, but never told Charles because "he wanted a girl."

Diana also revealed how Charles complained to her own mother over the gender of the baby, saying he was "so disappointed - we thought it would be a girl".

Okay, rude.

Naturally, Diana's mother was furious at Charles' telling him he should "realise how lucky you are to have a child that's normal".

After Charles' comments, Princess Diana said: "something inside me closed off", and their marriage broke down a few years later.
