And the late princess had a sneaky way of making it difficult for Charles to get his stuff in the weeks following their 1992 separation, which many divorcees will be able to relate to.
Writing in Charles: The Misunderstood Prince, royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith explained that Charles sent his valet of 10 years Michael Fawcett to get his things.
She wrote: "Diana loathed Fawcett, whom she regarded as an overbearing bully to those below him and a sycophantic lackey to Charles and Camilla.
"After Charles broke his right arm, Fawcett dutifully squeezed his toothpaste onto the royal toothbrush – a gesture quickly incorporated into Prince Charles lore as an everyday routine."
So when Charles sent his lackey to pick up his stuff, Diana seized the chance to get revenge.
Sally continued: "When Charles dispatched Fawcett to collect his belongings at Kensington Palace following the separation, Diana ordered the locks changed."
Charles moved two miles down the road to York House, a five-bedroom wing on the north side of St James' Palace – on the other side of Hyde Park and Green Park.
Then Prime Minister John Major announced their split in December 1992, but the couple didn't divorce until 1996.
The prince's banker claims Diana "took Charles to the cleaners" in the divorce, netting £17.5 MILLION from the settlement.
Although there are nine things Diana lost after the divorce – from police protection to her travel budget.
