The Royal family have had many scandalous relationships in the past which made the headlines for several tabloids. Be it the relationship of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh who did manage to keep their marriage going but it was not a cake walk for the Queen to be with Phillip who was an emotionally unavailable man. Or how Prince Charles was treated by his father. Elizabeth was crowed as the Queen in 192, when Charles was only 3. Since she had a lot of responsibilities as Queen, Philip, still being the man of the house took care of Charles.

By Ilya Bañares Staff Reporter Fri., May 18, 2018 The world is preparing for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, this Saturday at Windsor Castle. For some, the event calls to mind the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981.

By Jennifer Hassan The Washington Post Wed., May 16, 2018 Britain, 1947. The Second World War had ended but the nation’s struggle was far from over. Rationing was still in place for myriad food items. In the streets, people queued for jobs, for handouts and for fresh fruit. Families torn apart by war tried desperately to rebuild, many without the men who had left home for battle and never returned. Access to fuel was limited. Then one of the coldest winters on record hit, destroying Britain’s wheat crop and leaving thousands of people in rural areas isolated.
