Prince Charles knows all too well what it's like to have the press expose personal matters to the public. His marriage to, and subsequent divorce from, Princess Di was a media sensation, as was as his marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles. Charles is protective of his sons William and Harry, and always wanted them to have as normal a life as possible as children.
