An official photograph taken at Buckingham Palace following the announcement of the engagement of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer. 'Prince Charles was a worried man the night he proposed to Lady Diana Spencer over a candlelit dinner in his private Buckingham Palace sitting room. "I asked her three weeks ago, just before she left for Australia", the Prince said yesterday. "I wanted to give her a chance to think about it - to think if it was all going to be too awful." The couple later divorced, and Princess Diana was killed in a car crash in 1997.
