I read in Paul Burrell's A Royal Duty that Diana had a good relationship with the Duchess of Kent.

Margaret had a good relationship with her until the Panorama interview. She then threw a fit and ordered all books, magazines and personal photographs that showed Di's image to thrown out. When it was suggested that a statue be placed outside Kensington Palace, Margaret said, "I will not have that woman outside my window. The answer is no". The Duchess of Kent got on well with Di until she wouldn't convert to Catholicism apparantly. Princess Michael saw her for what she was and hence they never were particularly close. The Queen Mother didn't understand her at all. Princess Alexandra had long been friends with the Duchess of Cornwall and so didn't exactly see eye to eye with Diana though Angus Ogilvy was said to be closer.

Is that really true about Margaret not wanting a statue of Diana outside Kp.
And hardly anyone in the royal family has gotten along with Princess Michael she runs her trap too much.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if Diana and Princess Michael didn't like each other, because not a lot of people in the royal family like her too much anyway.

It is indeed true about Margaret. As for Princess Michael, whether the Royals like her or not, she is a true Royal. Maybe that's why....oh why bother?

A true royal you say I'll believe that when I see it. I have more respect for Camilla than Princess Michael but lets not delve into that subject.
Did Princess Diana get along well with the Glousters? There was a picture of her with Lady Devina holding hands at windsor castle.

Well, you know what they say about pedigree. I don't think the Gloucesters saw that much of the Wales's to be honest. Certainly Princess Alice wouldn't have done. She didn't go to the funeral either did she?

I don't remember seeing Princess Alice at the funeral. The Gloucesters have indeed kept a low profile. I read somewhere that Charles was close to the late Prince William of Gloucester.

Yep. And that's why William was called William apparantly.

From everything that I can recall, I think that Diana had a good relationship with the Queen and Charles' immediate family (with the exception of Anne--and that was most likely because they just didn't have anything in common). As for Princess Michael, well, I've never read anything that would suggest that there was a close relationship there--but that lack of friendly relationship is really not an adequate reason for this forum to take the nasty turn of bashing Princess Michael. Let's just say that she is an original in many ways! As for Princess Margaret not wanting a statue of Diana--who knows? Makes for a good story, though.

Well Diana have plenty of statues and other kind of stuff in the world that illustrate her work so it's no big deal if she's not in front kensington palace IMO . Perhaps Margaret thought Diana betrayed them by giving the Panorama interview, although she shouldn't have taken it so personnaly. Margaret was never stated in that interview, okay it was THE royal family but she was not among the ones concerned. In fact, at the end of her life Diana didn't have so many friends in the royal family around her which is understandable in a way. I'm really sadden that Fergie and Diana weren't in a good relationship when she died. They seemed to support each other when something was going wrong, and we were used to see them having fun at polo.
Maybe today they would have been friends again ...

The story goes that Princess Margaret felt that Di had insulted and betrayed the Queen and to Margaret, that was unforgiveable. She didn't care about the marriage woes, she just felt Di had broken the mystique of Royalty and that was something Margaret really didn't like. Or so I understand. God I miss Princess Margaret.

So do I. I also miss Diana. Okay, she's made some mistakes but at least she had the honesty of saying what she thought about the royal family. Some people would have said all the good they felt about them but backstabbing everyone after.

That's the problem though. You don't criticise the RF, especially if you've been one of them. It's just wrong.

Alright, but wouldn't that be wrong to just shut up and tell all the bad you think about them to everybody around except the ones concerned ? At least after she explained herself, it was clear for everyone.

The rule is - you never crap on your own doorstep. And she did. And that's why things played out as they did and why her relationship with the RF broke down.

I'm not critizising that at all. I mean, I would have done the same thing as the RF. Perhaps we agree that the Panorama Interview might be the worst mistake she's ever done ?

Definately. Had it not been for that I think she would have had a leg to stand on with people who disliked her. Me for starters. I'm very much like Princess Maggie in the respect that for me, that interview was the final straw. It just came across as the ultimate insult to the Queen and I felt that was unforgiveable.

It doesn't show the good side of Diana indeed. Although I don't think she was a threatful person and I still have some respect for her and for her work. I still think about what made her go to that point, the vengeance of course but I've always had the conviction there was more than that ...

Well certainly the Queen of Hearts thing was well-rehearsed and quite insulting. Thats what stands out for me.
