With abundant extramarital affairs (Charles infamously deceived Diana with his eventual wife Camilla Parker Bowleswhile Diana allegedly snuggled up to the police bodyguard Barry Mannakee) and a 12-year age difference between the two, the cracks in the actual relationship soon began to show.
Splitting in 1992 was a worldwide scandal and the couple finally divorced in 1996.
In addition to their marital problems, both Charles and Diana found themselves in the unique situation of not only having to raise two children, but also having to balance their royal lives.
But despite the scandalous nature of their marriage, the two managed to successfully fulfill their royal duties.
Diana was mostly exceptional in this regard, visiting Angola to help demine the nation just a year after her divorce.
Now, more than two decades after Diana’s untimely death, the field of astrology has exploded tenfold when it comes to examining relationships.
In fact, many romantics turn to the sky and see what is really written in the stars for them.
With that said, let’s take a look at just how compatible Prince Charles and Princess Diana really were based on their zodiac signs.
Sources say Prince Charles and Princess Diana were highly incompatible
Unbeknownst to their disastrous marriage and infidelity, it was pretty obvious that Prince Charles and Princess Diana weren’t meant to be.
But don’t just take my word for it, just see what the stars have to say.
As far as his Sun signs are concerned, Charles (born November 14, 1948) falls under the sign of Scorpio. Diana (who was born on July 1, 1961), on the other hand, was a Cancer.
Scorpio and Cancer are actually compatible in theory since they are both water signs, which the Dictionary defines as “any of the three astrological signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, which are grouped together due to shared attributes of sensitivity and emotionality.”
However, if we really want to get to the heart of the matter, we have to look the moon signs of Charles and Diana.
Debbie Frankan astrologer and close confidante of Diana in her final days (more on that below), opened up to Town & Country in August about moon signs sharply contrasting pair.
“She was a very different person than Diana,” Frank said of Charles, who is a Taurus moon. “This is very stubborn. It’s very fixed. It’s very unchanging,” he added. “While Diana had an Aquarius moon, that she’s very people-oriented, someone who wants to move with the times. They were really very different.”
An astrologer opens up about her friendship with Princess Diana
It’s a fact that’s often overlooked, but Princess Diana actually developed an affinity for astrology in his later years.
Such interest brought her closer to Debbie Frank, who served as personal astrologer of the late princess from 1989 to 1997.
Throughout her illustrious career, Frank has written several books, written for publications like Hello Magazine, and even served as a guest astrologer on BBC2’s “Steve Wright Show.”
Frank opened up about Diana’s “affability” and “kindness,” saying, “She was very nice. And everyone who knew her felt as if they had met the real Diana, and they did.”
She also revealed that Charles was actually the opposite of her, making it difficult for others to understand.
Frank also spoke about Diana’s passion for astrology, stating, “It was so easy to use [la astrología] as language.
You can translate what is the meaning, what is the resonance of [algo].
Frank also mentioned that Diana’s astrology studies served as “therapy” and “a means to navigate her feelings.”
This left the princess with many questions, as Frank noted: “We worked much more from the premise of ‘what can you learn from this? What options do you have? This is what you’re supposed to become.’ She gradually became more empowered.”
