Prince Charles and actress Catherine Zeta-Jones reportedly had a secret romance in the early 1990s.

New Idea reports the fling began in 1992, and that the pair met up every week after meeting at a London party.

The magazine reports the romance took place while Prince Charles was married to Princess Diana, and that he gave the actress "expensive gifts" until it ended in 1994.

A royal source wrote on gossip website Crazy Days and Nights, where the allegations began, that "the pair hit it off. For almost two years they saw each other once a week".

"It was a turbulent time. In a time of tabloids, but not internet, and certainly not social media, the royal family was being knocked around by all kinds of cheating between Prince Charles and Camilla while Diana was hooking up with James Hewitt. In 1992, Charles needed to not be seen with Camilla," the source wrote.
