If you’ve been watching The Crown, then you’ve probably found yourself obsessively intrigued in the bizarre relationship between Prince Charles, Princess Anne, and Camilla and Andrew Parker Bowles.
Prince Charles and Camilla’s scandalous affair made headlines around the world, but you’d be forgiven for not knowing about Princess Anne’s romantic fling with Andrew Parker Bowles.
You see, when Camilla met Charles she had already been dating her now ex-husband Andrew on and off for about five years. But Andrew had also dated Charles’s younger sister, Anne.
Yep, it’s not so much a love triangle but more of a strange love... square.
Watch the trailer for The Crown season four below. Post continues after video.
The entangled relationship features in the third episode of The Crown season three, but there were some elements historic drama got wrong.
Here’s a look at the true story behind the royal love affair.
Princess Anne and Andrew got together long before Charles and Camilla were ever a thing.
In The Crown, we see Andrew pursue Anne during a break from his on-again-and-off again relationship with Camilla. Meanwhile, Camilla is being distracted by a starry-eyed Prince Charles. It made for a juicy storyline, but in actual fact, the two relationships never overlapped in real life.
