The Other Spencer
The story of Princess Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles is widely known in popular culture, but there’s a surprising fact about their story that many don’t know. Before Prince Charles started courting Diana, he was actually dating her older sister, Lady Sarah Spencer. In fact, Diana and Charles met during a grouse hunt because he was attending the event with Sarah!
Sarah and Charles had a short-lived relationship, but their break up was anything but dramatic. Many people may assume that they broke up because Charles left Sarah for her younger sister, but it was more mundane than that. Lady Sarah later said that she and Charles were not compatible, so there was no love lost when they parted ways.
