No chance the story is genuine. Have no fear.

Petrie dish babies ('test tube babies') were the stuff of science fiction in 1980. (I realize that 1978 was the first such but it was too new a process to be done the way described. IMO)

I thinks it's absolute fantasy/folly/garbage. There is no daughter, secret or otherwise.

The fact that this fable first found it's legs on the pages of Murdoch's tabloid rag The Globe should tell us all we need to know!

When you think about it, you're not the only one because there is not, but what can you do when you run out of women willing to wail for yet another "I gave birth to an alien" story. The original story was a fiction novel but, I guess someone thought, 'oh wouldn't it be loverley'.

They missed out on Queen Wallis so I guess they think a second shot at an American Queen looks good. I have to admit to laughing at the "little succession problem", but never mind, you have to admire the author of the subject novel insisting "it could happen" . . . she's laughing all the way to the bank!

I think I saw a supposed photograph of this 'daughter' once, on the front of one of these supermarket rags. They photoshopped an enormous brown wig onto a photo of a young Diana!

Up next in The Globe is the amazing story of how Diana and Charles' secret daughter went on to keep her secret hidden yet showed her parent's traits to draw crowds each week as she starred as the lovable, furry alien named Gordon Shemway in the hit series ALF.

Believe me, anything is possible with The "all powerful and all knowing" Globe.

Sorry, regardless of her incredible and riveting imagination, The Globe will always win by dint of the sheer number of delusional nutters on staff.

But, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Charles and Diana got engaged 35 years ago. This writer knew they were doomed.

This was probably an unpopular article at the time it was written. As 'doomed' as the marriage was, I have to say that Diana did manage to carve out a role for herself that no-one saw coming; and I'm not referring to her faults. I think that she was probably seen to be more mature than she was because of the way she handled the press while they were chasing her around London. She was able to control her behaviour while in public, and so people had no idea of how erratic she was in her private life. Any evidence that she could be emotionally unstable was dismissed as 'pre-wedding nerves'. Lady Diana needed a few more years as a single woman and, ultimately, a partner who'd be able to spend more time really getting to know her before they married. Charles couldn't give her what she needed and she couldn't give him what he needed. That's the tragedy of the whole thing. Was there ever a real meeting of the minds before they wed? Who knows?

Well, 35 years later Diana's immaturity in the videos is glaring. Sorry to say but her behavior makes me wince. One hardly knows what to say.

In a way, both participants were caught in the public's aristocratic fantasy (and perhaps their own) of arranged royal marriages long over (though they knew it not). Charles (a young man who would prove prescient and forward thinking in so many other ways) proved hostage to his own upbringing, understandably succumbing to familial pressure (which in his case was a weight of centuries of historical expectations), trusting (one assumes) to Diana's aristocratic background and knowledge of the family to make things work. One could see him thinking that surely Diana understood the historical dynastic union upon which they were entering. That Diana and he were so out of sync is the tragedy for more than just them.

Wow, he had a Crystal Ball - and looked into it. He has foreseen nearly everything...... well, except the divorce.... (he predicted, there CAN´t be a divorce. Yes it can....)

I don't quite know whether this fits into this thread. However, I just think it has some reflections on Charles after his divorce and the influence of Diana on his parenting and some other things.

Well, I have to admit that any article where even the author is not named, let alone the "sources" has got to be suspect in any normal person's opinion. This goes doubly or even triply for any article about such a contentious issue.

The glaring lack of corroboration leads me to believe this is yet another paper picking over the bones for cash. It seems that invention really is the mother of money!

What we know..Charles and Diana were no longer enemies before her passing. Their relationship improved beautifully, their sake and for the kids. Diana did go on to accept the reality of Charles's relationship with Camilla.

Sorry, that was my fault for not noting the sources.

It is from 'Diana, the last days' by author Jean Rafferty and was serialised in the 'Scottish Daily Record and Sunday' from August 1998.
