10 MARCH, 1979: wherever the bachelor Prince of Wales travelled - this was two years before his marriage - photographers loved to snap him with a young woman. On his second morning swim at Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Australia, the publicity-hungry Jane Priest took her chance, splashing past his personal detective to embrace the unwary prince.

10 MARCH, 1999: 20 years to the day - 20 years that saw the drama of a failed marriage, a tragic death and a highly public relationship - and still a glimpse of Prince and woman sets all photographers' pulses racing. Here, Charles, on his controversial trip to Argentina, performs the tango with Adriana Vasile at a state banquet in Buenos Aires.
