HBOs The vow reveals the inner workings of the dark world of NXIVM by shedding light on founder Keith Raniere and former members. We follow throughout the documentary dynasty Star Catherine Oxenberg's journey to save her daughter India from Raniere's clutches, but we also discover Oxenberg's surprising relationship with the British royal family.
Oxenberg's mother is Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia, who happens to be the second cousin of Prince Charles and Oxenberg makes the third cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry. "She's very close to Prince Charles," Oxenberg said in a 2019 studio 10 interview about her mother's relationship with the king.
Coincidentally, Oxenberg's breakout role as Princess Diana was in the 1982 television movie The royal romance of Charles and Diana. While this was a big moment for Oxenberg and her career, it actually created some tension between her and the royal family. On her blog, Oxenberg stated that she had "received a severe reprimand in the form of a letter from the King of Greece who said that it was disrespectful for me to pose as Diana". In her interview with Studio 10 in 2019, she added that she has not been invited to Buckingham Palace since then. In fact, Oxenberg's last visit to the palace was actually shortly before Charles & # 39; wedding to Diana in 1981. She also has no photos with the royals on her Instagram, so it seems like their relationship is still broken.
