Princess Diana and Prince Charles: One of the most high-profile divorce cases in history involved the dissolution of the marriage between Princess Diana and Prince Charles in 1996. The divorce was heavily covered by the media and sparked a public discussion about the difficulties of maintaining a high-profile marriage in the public eye.

Donald and Ivana Trump: The divorce between real estate mogul Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana, was highly publicized in the 1990s. The couple had a prenuptial agreement that limited Ivana’s financial settlement, but she still received a substantial sum in the divorce settlement.
