People think Camilla’s shoes have everything to do with Princess Diana

This is why.

It’s one of the most talked about divorces in history and 31 years on, Princess Diana, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles are still making headlines. 

Over the weekend, The Duchess of Cornwall stepped out wearing Chanel two-tone heels not one, but two times.

While many wouldn’t think twice about the outfits, those who followed Princess Diana closely would know that the People’s Princess avoided the brand after her divorce because it reminded her too much of Charles and Camilla’s affair. 

The reason? The brand’s logo featuring linked C’s, as Diana once explained to Australian designer Jayson Brundson.

“I asked why, and she said, ‘It’s Camilla and Charles,’” Brundson said of Diana’s hesitancy to wear Chanel.

“It was definitely the timing, it being post-divorce. She would have seen linked C’s and they would have just reminded her of Charles and Camilla.”

So, just a pair of heels, or a subtle statement?
