It is not shown clearly on the TV show, however it seems like kind of common knowledge among the small council (Varys, Littlefinger) and the palace. People choose to ignore or acknowledge this based on their interest. Now Cersei is on trial for the same and Stannis also has shared this information to all the lords. She may have suspected the incestuous relationship based on rumors and the letters Stannis spread all over Westeros from the very start.


Its never explained but I assume she heard the rumors and figured it out.

Dorne was no fan of the lannisters so I'm sure they loved the rumor of incests.
