A Prince Charles letter to an old girlfriend that reveals his fears surrounding divorce has been put up for sale in the US.
It's addressed to Janet Jenkins, who worked at the British Consulate in Montreal, and dates to June, 1980 - just eight months before Charles proposed to Diana Spencer.
In it he writes: "I do hope you have recovered from the traumatic business of marriage and divorce in such a short time.
"Thank goodness you discovered the mistake early enough and didn't start a family.
"Starting a family and making a mistake like that is frankly, something which concerns me enormously.
"I shall just have to get married as soon as possible and then all these people might relax a little! I still think my solution of marrying a girl from each Commonwealth country is the best one."
The letter, along with six others, was originally put up for sale in 2005 but later withdrawn. It's now being offered by dealer Alice Carroll with an asking price of $3,900.
