In 2003, former royal butler Paul Burrell leaked letters he said were exchanged between Prince Philip and Diana. They show that Philip supported Diana over his son Charles during their divorce.
At the time Philip attempted to block publication of the letters by the Daily Mail, which suggests they’re authentic. The documents have now newly resurfaced.
Express reports that in a letter written on July 7, 1992, Prince Philip told Princess Diana of his and the Queen’s disapproval of Charles’ love life.
Charles and Diana separated in 1992 after he had an affair with his now-wife Camilla Parker Bowles.
“Charles was silly to risk everything with Camilla for a man in his position,” Prince Philip reportedly wrote.
“We never dreamed he might feel like leaving you for her. Such a prospect never even entered our heads.”
He signed the letters with “Fondest love, Pa.”
