They are the envy of millions of girls around the world and dream of the same fate. However, not all princesses have a life like in a fairy tale. The heroines of our material managed to marry a prince, but despite the external idyll, they remained deeply unhappy.
So much has been written about the marriage of Diana Spencer and Prince Charles that there is enough for an entire library.
They were married in 1981. The media immediately dubbed the celebration the wedding of the century, but for the newly-made princess, this day was the beginning of the most difficult period in her life. Diana knew that her husband had loved another woman all his life — Camilla Parker-Bowles, but she continued to tolerate infidelity and create the appearance of a happy family.
In an interview with Andrew Morton, Lady Dee admitted that the problems began immediately after the wedding ceremony. She suffered from bulimia, hated herself and blamed her rival for everything. There is information that Charles ' wife even tried to cut her veins, but, fortunately, everything went well.
Soon Diana, who did not receive due attention from her husband, began to look for him in her environment. At the same time, the husband stopped hiding his relationship with his mistress and even went on a joint trip with her. This angered Elizabeth II, who asked Diana and Charles to arrange a divorce.
At the end of June this year, it became known that the Dubai Princess Shaya ran away from her husband, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, to the UK. The woman took with her $ 39 million and children. She explains her actions by saying that she just wanted to save her life.
According to the official version, the sheikh caught his wife cheating with a bodyguard. Allegedly, al-Maktoum returned to his mansion without warning, finding Shaya at a suspiciously close distance from the guard. Mohammed had previously suspected the princess in connection with this man: according to him, his wife spoiled him with too luxurious gifts and spent suspiciously much time with him.
Now the couple are trying to resolve the issues of custody of their common children in court.
Elizabeth II's sister has always loved only one man: the late King's head groom, Captain Peter Townsend.
It became known about their relationship by chance: during one of the official events, Margaret instinctively brushed a speck of dust off him. The reporters noticed this and suspected something was wrong. The man was not suitable for the monarch to be a groom: he was 16 years older, divorced and did not have a noble origin.
In 1960, Margaret married Anthony Armstrong-Jones. She didn't love this guy and didn't even try to create the appearance of a perfect marriage. The princess lived with her husband for 18 years. During this time, she changed young lovers like gloves, but she tried not to get attached to any of them. There was only one man left in her heart forever — Peter.
Princess Louise suffered from severe depression in her youth. In order to somehow brighten up the joyless life of her granddaughter, the girl's grandmother decided to find her a groom. The ideal candidate was Friedrich of Lippe-Schaumburg. The engagement took place in 1984.
However, the marriage did not make Louise happier. On the contrary, she withdrew even more into herself. After the wedding, the newlyweds moved to Bohemia. The princess gave birth to three children to her husband, but she did not feel confident next to him and was very homesick. She continued to suffer from mood swings and increasingly felt lonely.
In 1906, Louise fell ill with meningitis. The disease took all the strength. In the same year, the princess died.
Almost every second person knows the story of the last and saddest Korean princess in the East. She was sent to Japan at the age of 13 as a hostage. The girl spent her whole life in a foreign land, far from her family.
At the behest of the Japanese Empress Teimei Tokhe was married to Count Takeyuki. For both of them, the marriage was a test. And if the princess was still trying to find solace by raising a common daughter, then her husband did not hide his disappointment that he had to marry forcibly.
Because of an unhappy marriage at Tokha began to develop depression. Soon she was diagnosed with schizophrenia. The husband placed his wife in a psychiatric hospital, and at that time he began the divorce process. Tokhe spent many years in an institution for the mentally ill: she was treated with large doses of potassium bromide and electric shock.
In 1962, the princess returned to her homeland. She spent the rest of her life surrounded by her brother's relatives.
