However, although the Prince of Wales “never publicly criticised” his wife in the aftermath of the bombshell book, it did spur him to retaliate in a “disastrous” way.

Royal biographer Penny Junor, in her 2005 book “The Firm” delves into the  troubled period after the 1992 revelations.

Ms Junor writes: ”The Prince of Wales was utterly humiliated by ‘Diana: Her True Story’.

“He was adamant, nevertheless, that there should be no retaliation and instructed his friends to say nothing.

“Charles has never publicly criticised Diana.”

The author goes on: “Whenever I have pointed this out to people, they say: ‘Ah, but he got his friends to do it for him.’

“This is untrue.

“Some of his friends did feel that the injustice meted out to him by Morton’s book was intolerable and I, for one, was encouraged by several of them to try to redress the balance, but they were not thanked for their trouble and neither was I.”
