The excitement of proposing to one’s beloved is not something one can explain. However, this does not hold true for everyone. If many spend a long time planning on how to propose, the same cannot be said for Prince Charles.
They had only met 12 times when Prince Charles purposed to Diana. Although he went down on one knee, no one can imagine what he did just after she told him yes.
When they met on the day of the proposal he told her he had missed her lot. As he went down on one knee and asked her to marry him, she burst out laughing. Although one can imagine that was not what he was expecting, she probably thought that the proposal would br more romantic.
As soon as she said yes, his behaviour was unusual. Instead of hugging her or holding her hand, he picked up the phone and called his mother. He told his mother, “I’ve done it now. You told me to get married to someone and that is what I have done.”
In an interview which Princess Diana gave, she said that Prince Charles only wanted to find a wife.
Meanwhile next year, a Broadway musical will be produced about the life of Princess Diana. The musical, entitled Diana is being advertised as the story of the woman who caused a stir among the Royals. The main role will be played by Jeanna de Waal who has already appeared on Broadway in American Idiot and Kinki Boots. The actress said that Princess Diana used to make everyone feel special, from the most important person to the most humble person.
The music was composed by David Bryan. Among the songs in this musical there will be Snap, Click about the paparazzi who used to hound the Princess wherever she went, as well as Welcome to the Windsors, Here Comes James Hewitt, (who was the officer who had an affair with her), as well as Secrets and Lies.
The show will open at the Longacre theatre on 2 March, 2020.
