Observers assumed she was sad to see her husband go, but The Diana Interview claimed it was actually because, moments earlier, she had walked in on Prince Charles having a pre-departure phone conversation with Camilla.

What did Prince Charles say about being reincarnated as Camilla’s tampon?

Later in the documentary, it reminded viewers of a leaked phone call between Prince Charles and Camilla that saw the latter saying the prince would want to be her knickers in another life.

Oh, you’re going to come back as a pair of knickers.

Charles responded by joking he would probably end up reincarnated as her tampon.

“Yes!” said a third. “Never forget, Charles wanted to be Camilla’s tampon #thedianainterview.”

Someone else put: “Prince Charles getting caught on tape saying he wanted to come back as a Tampax mun.”

However, in the recording, Prince Charles appeared to intone that he did not want to come back as Camilla’s tampon.

Camilla said: “What are you going to turn into, a pair of knickers? Oh, you’re going to come back as a pair of knickers.”

Charles laughed and replied: “Or, god forbid, a Tampax. Just my luck.”
