I was shocked when Diana died, yet somehow not truly surprised!
When she first came on the scene she seemed so young, innocent and radiant, an ideal princess.

Yet in the end she was jaded, dissatisfied, and embittered.
I've always thought that, if she hadn't died so young, she'd have ended up like Christina Onassis- famous, rich, yet alone and unloved. (I'm not counting the public adulation she received, I don't think it would have been any consolation for loneliness).

Yes, I know what you mean, Mirabel. She changed her look so much in the picture that were released after Harry's birth, and perhaps there was an inner change that occurred then as well. I didn't like her glamorous new look at all, with the heavier makeup and the satiny blouse that looked too tight.

I read in a book that Princess Diana love for Prince Charles died when he came to the hospital and was displeased with Prince Harry being a boy with red hair.

Maybe your observation is correct about the change in the princess after the birth of of the spare.

I don't think that Diana considered the effect on her children of what she said in the Morton book. First her telling about her throwing herself down the stairs while pregnant with William, and then her making the comments about Prince Charles' remarks about Harry. Diana was a good mother in a lot of ways, but not in the remarks that she made at times.

My theory looking back on the Morton Book was Princess Diana's bulimia and depression got the better of her and she wrote the book to get even with Prince Charles. I give her slack because of her mental condition.

A young girl called Kirsty shares her memories of meeting Princess Diana in 1981, when Diana was given the freedom of the city of Cardiff, and made her first public speech in Welsh

You can tell Diana, Princess of Wales is nervous about her speech until she gives it, then her big, smile of relief.

Not sure if this a good thread for it but Dateline in US doing Diana wedding special and apparently she told her dress designers 7 days before the ceremony 'let's hope I don't fall on my ass'

That's funny!

And after she messed up Charles's name she asked her makeup artist 'do you think anyone heard me?' A bit naive, no? :)

I read that when Princess Diana and her father, Earl Spencer where going down the aisle at the wedding she was holding her father up. She was worried that they would not make it.

BTW Earl Spencer had a stoke and that is why Diana had to help him.

I think that she was more worried about tripping on her train.

It's possible that Diana knew that her sons needed to know her truth. They seem to have turned out very well, and to be truthful, themselves.

I'm sorry for being obtuse, Roseroyal. I meant Diana's honesty about her bulimia, her desperation during her pregnancy, her feelings of lack of support. I'm not blaming anyone - but if Diana felt those things, perhaps she knew that others needed to know.

Children are often very resilient, and Diana may well have wanted her sons to know what her life was really like.
