The new season of "The Crown" revealed the conversation between Charles and Camilla that sparked his divorce from Princess Diana

In early November, Netflix presented the fifth season of The Crown, which from the very beginning attracted the attention of viewers with a plot filled with scandalous episodes from the life of the royal family. The latest season of the series recalls some of the most painful moments of the royal family in the early 1990s, including a spicy conversation between Elizabeth II's son Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles that took place in 1989.

The American publication People writes about it. It is a transcript of an intimate 6-minute phone conversation between lovers Charles and Camilla, who were in their 40s at the time.

The transcript was published by tabloids in January 1993. First, it was published in the British newspaper The People with the transparent headline "Charles and Camilla - The Recording." Later, it was picked up by other publications.

The Sunday Mirror reports that the conversation took place in 1989, when Charles and Camilla were still married to other people. Charles was married to Princess Diana, and Camilla was married to Andrew Parker-Bowles.

It is still not known how the recording got into the newspaper.

According to the creators of The Crown, this conversation was intercepted by a man who listens to phone conversations in real time. He sold the recording for profit.

In this conversation, Charles told Camilla that he wanted to "live inside her pants" and then joked that he could turn into a Tampax tampon. Camilla laughed and then added that she missed him "desperately".

This scandal instantly spread across the United Kingdom and the world, and was dubbed "Camilgate" and "Tampongate".

It is said that it was the final point in the marriage of Charles and Diana. The Sunday Mirror noted that Princess Diana took the conversation "painfully."

As a reminder, Prince Charles and Princess Diana separated in late 1992, and the divorce was officially finalized only in August 1996, a year before the Princess of Wales died.

As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Charles III and his wife were pelted with eggs during a visit to Yorkshire.
