Prince Charles' love letters up for grabs.

Byline: ANI

London, Mar 6 (ANI): Love letters sent by Prince Charles to a girlfriend have been put up for sale on auction website eBay.

One of the six letters to Welsh-born Janet Jenkins was penned in 1980, just a year before he tied the knot with Princess Diana, reports the Sun.

Charles and Jenkins met in 1975 when she was a receptionist at the British consulate in Montreal, Canada.

In the letter, written on official Windsor Castle notepaper, Charles complains of his frustration with the press and fear of marrying the wrong girl.

Charles writes: "I would have thought your apartment is the quietest place.

"If we went out the press would be on to it in a flash and that would be misery."

Writing about failed marriages, he says: "Making a mistake like that is, frankly, something which concerns me enormously."

In the last seven-page letter, he writes: "My new private secretary is horrified by the idea of ladies in hotels during foreign visits.

"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 letters have an auction starting price of 25,000 pounds.

It is believed Jenkins, of Toronto, sold them to LA-based collector Alicia Carroll, whose firm recently went bust. (ANI)
