“Charles got into the habit of dropping in on her at Kensington Palace and they would have tea and a sort of rueful exchange. They even had some laughs together,” Brown told The Daily Telegraph.

While the Princess of Wales understood that Camilla Parker Bowles was the love of Charles’ life, Brown revealed that Diana told her she would have rekindled her relationship with her ex-husband if she could. “She said to me at that lunch that she would go back to Charles in a heartbeat if he wanted her," Brown said.
Diana was just 19 years old when she married Prince Charles at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London in 1981. The couple welcomed their first son, Prince William, in 1982, followed by Prince Harry in 1984.
