The third woman in Charles’ life

world Updated: Mar 09, 2009 00:21 IST

If you think that there’re only two women in Prince Charles’ life, Princess Diana and Camilla, here’s some more information — Britain’s king-in-waiting had a third woman in his life.

Charles fell in love with Janet Jetkins in 1975 when he was 26 and she was 30. At that time, the Welsh-born blonde was working as a receptionist at British consulate in Canada, his love letters, written to her, has revealed.

In one of the letters, Charles writes to Jetkins: “I would have thought your apartment is the quietest place. If we went out the press would be on to it in a flash and that would be misery.”

Writing about failed marriages, the Prince of Wales says, “Making a mistake like that is, frankly, something which concerns me enormously.”

Another mail reads: “My private secretary is horrified by the idea of ladies in hotels during foreign visits. I shall just have to get married as soon as possible and then all the- se people might relax a little! I still think my solution of marrying a girl from each Commonwealth country is the best.”

Some of the love letters, written in 1980, just a year before he married Diana, were last week put up for auction on website ‘eBay’, The Sun reported.
