WATCH! A new biography claims Prince Charles NEVER wanted to marry Princess Diana!
In a new documentary, Jeremy Paxman claims the Queen ordered Charles and Andrew to get a divorce at a crisis 'summit' at Sandringham in 1995.
Although the marriages of Diana and Charles and Fergie and Andrew were viewed as fairytales at the beginning, it became common knowledge that both marriages were in crisis by the early nineties.
According to Express.co.uk, the breakdown of the royal marriages prompted the Queen to 'read the riot act' to the Prince of Wales and Duke of York.
On Channel 5’s Paxman on the Queen’s Children, which aired on Tuesday, royal reporters who documented the breakdown of the royal marriages sat down to discuss the details.
Jeremy Paxman explains: “Her Majesty had a plan to take back control from her wayward children.”
In the documentary, Mr Paxman speaks to veteran royal reporter Phil Dampier, who explained that the Queen was forced to issue an 'ultimatum' after the onslaught of scandal surrounding both marriages.
Mr Dampier says: “The Queen had summoned her children to what you can only describe as a summit, at Sandringham.
“The monarchy itself was in peril, it was at such a low ebb.
"t was in such a terrible state that they had to do something."
Mr Dampier continued: “That was the turning point when the Queen said, enough is enough, you must now divorce. We have to draw a line under this."
