EPISODE 3: "Fairytale" with John Duggan

Charles proposes to Diana, and she accepts. Diana moves from her London flatshare into the palace, amid a media frenzy. She is tutored in the ways of the palace by her grandmother, and suffers repeated episodes of an eating disorder. While Charles is abroad, she meets Camilla for lunch, and realises that she hardly knows Charles at all, while Camilla knows every detail of their relationship. Distressed, she thinks of calling the marriage off. Meanwhile Charles returns from his trip and sees Camilla before returning home; he tells Diana he had visited her to end their relationship. Margaret tells the Queen that the marriage will be a mistake, but Philip argues that Charles will grow to love Diana. The Queen tells Charles to focus on his duty, and happiness will follow. The marriage goes ahead amid huge public celebrations.
