The Prince of Wales is not threatened by renewed interest in Princess Diana but is frustrated that the past keeps being brought up when he is trying to move forward, according to a royal expert.

British author Katie Nicholl said the Princess of Wales appears to constantly be back in the spotlight thanks to The Crowns news series, which focuses on her marriage to Prince Charles, and because of the 25th anniversary of her Panorama interview.

But despite the 73-year-old heir to the throne apparently feeling overshadowed by his popular wife during their life together, the current fascination with Diana, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997, hasnt left him feeling threatened.

Ms Nicholl told 9Honey: Im absolutely sure he doesnt see that sudden revived interest in her as a threat at all. I think more a frustration that the past keeps getting dredged up when he is trying to move forward.

She added that she mostly felt sorry for the royals second wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, 73, after she faced a tirade of online hate after The Crown falsely suggested she had an affair with Charles throughout his marriage to Diana.

Her reinvention has been a remarkable one and one thats taken a lot of work on her part, on the part of her courtiers and I actually feel quite sorry for the Duchess of Cornwall.
