Prince Charles reportedly told Princess Diana he didn't love her the day before their wedding.

Charles, now 71, and Lady Diana Spencer, who tragically died at the age of just 36, wed in St. Paul's Cathedral on 29 July 1981 in front of 2,600 guests.

The Princess of Wales' former astrologer Penny Thornton has now made the claim that Charles told her his true feelings 24 hours before they were due to walk down the aisle in the new ITV documentary The Diana Interview: Revenge of a Princess.

She said: "One of the most shocking things that Diana told me was that the night before the wedding, Charles told her that he didn't love her.

"And that was a truly terrible thing to do to your bride. You know, that you're going to marry in St. Paul's Cathedral the very next day."

Penny went on to explain that she believes Charles, who is "as fit as a mountain goat" according to his 73 year old wife Camilla, wanted to go into the marriage without any lies between them.

"I think Charles didn't want to go into the wedding on a false premise, she said. "He wanted to square it with her and it was devastating for Diana."

The revelation, Penny claimed, made Diana rethink tying the knot with Charles as she added: "She didn't want to go through with the wedding at that point. She thought about not attending the wedding."

Later in the documentary, Charles, who was reportedly considered a second father to Meghan Markle, was also branded "atrocious" for leaving Diana's side to play Polo minutes after she gave birth to their son Prince Harry in 1984.

Ken Lenox, a photographer, recalled waiting outside St Mary's Hospital in London to take snaps of the royal couple and their newborn son when he found out the rumour that Charles had "abandoned" his wife.

Ken said he thought the rumour was so ridiculous he even bet £50 it wasn't true, but lost.

"I’m standing outside the hospital and Jimmy Gray who was a Daily Mail royal photographer at the time," he started. "He said to me 'Do you know he's [Prince Charles] going to leave here and go and play Polo?'

He continued: "I lost £50 because I couldn’t believe that a man with a newborn baby was going to leg it and play some daft game of Polo.

"Doing something like that to a wife with a newborn baby was atrocious. If he thought he could treat his wife like that, he was in deep trouble."
