I think she was wrong to use her children as her confidantes, especially William. She couldn't have expected them to have a healthy relationship with their father after all that.

I know she was hurt but...

In general I'm sure she was a great mother. You only had to listen to Harry talk about her to know that.

i totally agree. to burden her children with her problems is an awful thing to do. i suppose she felt that her children were the only people she could really trust.

Has anyone other than Diana or people whom Diana spoke to support the claims that she confided in her children about deeply personal matters? If not, I wonder whether Diana put the story forward in order to emphasize how understanding and mature William was; i.e. "top job" material as opposed to her husband, whom she claimed ignored her.

good question mermaid. i think that diana meant well when she did confide in william and like a lot of parents that go through divorce she probably said her share of negative things about charles to the boys. but whether she was trying to test william's maturity or just venting it was, and always is, a bad idea.

Oh yes, confinding about personal things to young children is a no-go. Definitely.

Thank you maryamj - a very pretty piture!

I think it's really neat that a younger generation is seeing these pictures of Diana. Those of us who were Diana's age have been looking at them for years, but these pictures still have the ability to give great enjoyment to people.

The history of Diana is actually passed through generation to generation and people remember her. Youngsters are curious about her life and want to get to know more and more. I also think Diana's style inspires them as she's a style icon and her respect towards other people is something like a code of behaviour for those who know her life only from older people...
