"I am only too aware of the temptation of avoiding harsh reality, not just for myself but for my own children, too. Am I doing them a favor if I hide suffering and unpleasantness from them until the last possible minute? The last minute which I choose for them may be too late. I can only face them with a choice based on what I know. The rest is up to them."

Diana's favorite phrase at tucking-in time:

"Who loves you most?"

After Fergie and Andrew's wedding in September 1986:

"Did you see William? I'm glad he behaved himself because he can be a bit of a prankster. William is just like me, always in trouble, but he'll grow out of it."

"I just want my children to be happy and normal. I will do everything I can to help them achieve these very ordinary feelings."

Diana vowed to protect her sons from frequent public duty for as long as possible.

"My sons won't be pushed into doing anything public---unlike the Queen and Princess Margaret, who appeared in public at a very early age during the teens. William and Harry will definitely be broken in gently."

On a visit to an orphanage, a thirteen-year-old asked Diana why William wasn't with her......

"I didn't bring William today because he's a little pest. he won't do as he's told and touches everything."

Then, while watching a seventeen-year-old demonstrate break dancing, Diana jokingly told him:

"I'll buy you a new pair of trousers if you split those."

Diana told a woman in the crowd waiting to see her in Nova Scotia:

I wish I had William with me. We've been away a few hours, but I miss him very much. I'm really sorry we couldn't bring him."

On her postpartum depression:

"When I came out of the hospital I could barely put one foot in front of the other. My stitches were killing me. It was such a strain to stand there and smile even for just a few minutes. As soon as the car disappeared around the corner out of sight of the photographers, I burst into tears."

For more than the obvious reasons, Diana felt tremendous relief when William was at last born:

"I felt the whole country was in labor with me."

Before William's birth, Diana adamantly told her physician, Dr. Pinker:

"I shall of course be breastfeeding for as long as possible. I believe it is a very important part of bonding between mother and child."

When journalist Arthur Edwards asked Diana whether she intended to go watch charles play polo, she replied:

"No, I'm not going. I hate the game. I don't understand it and I never have. I also hate the sycophants who hang around it. So I'm not going at all this summer. The boys won't be going either. They don't like it and, anyway, it's a waste of quality time."

"I think in any marriage, especially when you've had divorced parents like myself, you'd want to try even harder to make it work and you don't want to fall back into a pattern that you've seen happen in your own family. I desperately wanted it to work, I desperately loved my husband and I wanted to share everything together, and I thought that we were a very good team."

"My husband and I had to keep everything together because we didn't want to disappoint the public, and yet obviously there was a lot of anxiety going on within our four walls."

Early in 1996, Diana told journalists:

"The boys are both doing very well at school. William is doing well academically and doesn't really like it. He'd prefer to do other things but sticks to his work and is getting on fine."

In 1991, Diana still told most friends that charles was:

"the same man today as on my wedding day."

The Palace insisted that charles be at Diana's side after her father died, although she'd intended to leave charles and their two boys behind.

"Why are they bothering about him ignoring me now? He's been ignoring me for years already."

Diana told Charles:

"My duty (as a mother) lies above my duty to you."

Diana discussed the 1994 Jonathan Dimbleby biography of Prince Charles with Peter Stothard, London Times editor:

"Do you know that it originally was supposed to contain nothing about our relationship at all? How were reader supposed to think that the (children) came? By immaculate conception?"
