Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1992 trip to Korea was known as the 'The Glums' tour'

Watch the full interview with The Sun’s Royal Photographer Arthur Edwards on episode eight of Yahoo UK’s show ‘The Royal Box‘, which is available to stream here from Friday 28 September. 

Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage began to disintegrate after just a few years, but they managed to mask the cracks for some time until their separation in 1992. 

But when was there a sense that things were finally starting to break down?

The Sun’s Royal Photographer Arthur Edwards, who has followed the family for over 44 years, talks about the couple’s last tour in Korea in November 1992.

Speaking on episode 8 of Yahoo UK’s show ‘The Royal Box’, Mr Edwards said: “It was only when we went to Korea, the last tour, when you knew it was all over then because they couldn’t bear to be in each other’s company. It was so miserable.”

He also revealed that the trip was known as “The Glums’ tour.”

Mr Edwards said: “There were the signs earlier when we were in India [February 1992], when he went to kiss her at the polo match and she turned her head.”

The royal tour of India also produced one of the most famous images of Diana, sitting alone at the Taj Mahal, but Mr Edwards believes it wasn’t a snub by Charles.

He explained that it was never the plan for Charles to join his wife in the Indian city of Agra as he was meeting with British businessman in Bangalore.
