Charles And Diana: 1983 Wed 28 Jul on SBS

If a single photograph can say a thousand words, a thousand photographs can tell an incredible story.

In 1983, the most famous couple in the world arrived in Alice Springs, Australia for a historic royal tour.

Greeted by oceans of cheering fans, packing and lining each and every street. Fans and admirers full of hope, optimism and love for the Prince and Princess. All is not what it seems – a closer look back on this expansive royal tour reveals a much more foreboding and gruelling reality.

Two years married, a 9-month old child and constant observation, no one could hide the truth forever and the cracks in the Wales’ marriage were beginning to show.

The love they shared began to fall apart and the world was left to see a man of royalty, stoic and cold trying to understand a woman of the people, vulnerable and sweet.

From Australia to New Zealand, this is an incredible look at the 1983 royal tour like never before.

Charles And Diana: 1983 premieres Wednesday 28 July at 7.30pm on SBS and SBS On Demand.
