Storyline

Prince Charles' Other Mistress tells the fascinating, largely unknown and ultimately tragic story about his intense relationship with Australian heiress Dale "Kanga" Tryon. For a period in the 1970s Kanga (Lady Tryon), and Camilla Parker Bowles were deadly rivals for the Prince's affections. Camilla was the consummate insider who knew how to play the royal game, Dale however was a talented amateur who committed the cardinal sin of talking about her relationship with the Prince to the press. As a consequence, she soon found herself excluded from the royal circle. Following this exclusion her mental fragility led to her being sectioned under the Mental Health Act and she died aged 49 in unusual circumstances in 1997, only months after Diana. With exclusive and previously unseen interviews with Dale herself and heartfelt contributions from friends and journalists who knew her well including Oscar-nominated actress Sarah Miles. Prince Charles' Other Mistress will shed new light on, and ... Written by Monkey Kingdom

Felt bad for camilla
3 January 2018 | by ElliesWonderSee all my reviews

Interested to know British royal story, or should I use the word - scandal? That was a really complex relationship, I only knew Prince Charles' love triangle with Diana and Camila, I never expected to know a fourth person Dale Tryon was intruded into this last century's famous marriage.

What I thoughts changed over time.

1) As a child, I thought Camilla is evil, because news that I read from newspapers always criticized her over and over, and belittled to her marriage with Prince Charles. As a comparison, there were many articles about admiring Princess Diana's beauty and fashion taste. When I was a child, it was fascinating to read Diana's Cinderella story and her tragic death. Also, Diana's photos and fashion taste really beautiful from the past that left in the magazine.

2) Around age 16-18, I started to aware something about relationship and responsibilities. I found Camila must mean a lot to Prince Charles, and everybody knows she is not beautiful, she is no longer young and she once divorced. Why would Prince Charles remarried her after all these years in old age, there were a lot of burdens and responsibilities need to carry during a marriage. Especially under all the criticized from public and family. (The belittlement still existed after first few years of their marriage.)

3) Now, I felt bad for Camila after watching this documentary. Particularly after finding out there was another mistress between this multiple love. Women shouldn't be the main one to blame, why the public did not focus on Prince Charles' 1-2-3-maybe-more affairs. But being so harsh to Camila? Also, this video mentioned the Dale Tryon's husband would go to hunting when Prince Charles came to visit, that's really some fridge-horror right there.

That's sad, even nowadays people are still crazy to do comparing and belittling. I dont agree to Camilla's moral corrupt affair, but I do feel bad for her that being criticize over and over.
