I have never denied anything I've heard Diana say herself. And I heard her say that she pushed Raine. So I believe she did - I know she did. I believe her on "this one" because there's primary evidence that she did, primary evidence that some would love to cover up because they can't see any bad in her which to me is just sad.

Oh okay. It's fine now with me, I just wanted to know why. But I've never said she didn't had a bad side either. No one's perfect (no, not even the Queen)

When exactly did Princess Diana push Raine down the stairs?

I remember reading the "stairs" story in a book, and I really didn't want to believe it; but then I saw her admitting to it--I think in one of the Settleton tapes--and that confirmed it. Diana lacked boundaries, to say the least.

It was written in a book I read about Diana that when her mom came to the house at Althorpe, I think it was for her brother Charles wedding, her father and stepmother ignored Frances and Diana became angry and confronted Raine about it. Raine replied,"You don't realize the amount of pain that woman caused your father", to which Diana replied,"Pain Raine? You have no idea what pain is" I think Diana was referring to the pain that Raine had caused Diana and her sisters and brother when she married Diana's father. At that point Diana pushed her down the stairs.

I also think that Diana's sisters and brother must have softened towards Raine as she was invited to Diana's funeral and she went.

From what I have read the sole reason for Diana disliking Raine was that she married her father....the old stepmother story.
They(the children) also resented the way she set to work to put the family finances in order which meant having to sell off some things. Probably that was why they were still able to inherit a considerable fortune after their father´s death). I believe Raine was rather badly treated and the final insult was when her mother, Barbara Cartland, wasn´t even invited to the wedding although she had always been kind to Diana and Diana´´s favourite books were hers she was said to devour them and was always given the latest to read by Barbara. The reason for not inviting her that I heard was that Diana didn´t want that overdressed "eccentric" elderly lady taking away any attention from Diana the bride....
A young woman pushing an older woman down the stairs....... well to say the least it is not "done".

According to the Daily Mail (I know not a very relaible source)
Quote:
A group of snide and snobbish courtiers, allegedly encouraged by Princess Margaret, campaigned to influence Earl Spencer into withdrawing the two tickets he had allocated to his mother-in-law for the wedding in St Paul's Cathedral

The Earl at the time was not very well, you could see he was not when there was that tiny moment of confusion at the entrance to St Paul´s. I think that the snub given to Raine had to come from Diana, I don´t think that any courtier, snobbish or snide could do anything about an invitation to whom, in fact, was the bride´s step grandmother. It was very cruel, and as an admirer óf Princess Margaret I really hope that she wasn´t capable of such cruelty, as cruelty it was.

Not a Diana fan at all but long been fascinated by the relationship between these two. I must say from what I recall of the stairs story, they were speaking on the stairs and Diana shoved her away in a temper, no dramatic roll down three flights or anything. I remember an interview with Diana where she said the breakdown of her own marriage helped her to understand her stepmother better and she came to appreciate how much Raine had actually helped the Spencer family (I believe this referred to financially but I could be wrong.)

I have read that Diana, Princess of Wales was asked by her father to watch out for Raine Spencer before he died in 1992.

Also I read that after Princess Diana had the last break up with her Mother, she relied on her relationship with Raine to have a mother figure and to make her mother jealous.

So many childhood hurts are hard to bear. Diana and Raine made peace with one another. That speaks volumes about Diana's character.

And Raine's, considering how badly Diana treated her.

THIS IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM WONDERING WHY ARE STILL DIANA FANS !!
Diana's step-mom did awful things to her,when her dad was in the hospital,close to Christmas time,she didn't let the children to see him,when she came into the Spencer Family,Diana and her little brother,Charles,were ignored in not in good relations with her,because,Di said in the book ''Diana-Her true story'',that ''She was always trying to replace mommy'' and she hated this feeling,so,at her brother's wedding,Diana's mom was ignored by everybody that day,that's why Diana got angry by this,is simply normal!!Is not your problem if are Diana fans or not after this situation,is not your problem why Diana threw her step-mom on the stairs!
I hope you won't think anything bad or wrong about this,but that's the way I think and what I believe in,I tell in front.
Thank you.

The familiar handwriting is touchingly girlish, a big loopy scrawl on pale blue writing paper headed with a ‘60, Coleherne Court’ address.
The tone is warm, affectionate and confiding. ‘Lucky Daddy having you,’ wrote the then Lady Diana Spencer to her supposedly loathed stepmother, Raine, ‘a million thanks for all your support and advice.’
This is one of two letters, both more than 30 years old, which were this week withdrawn from sale at JP Humbert, a Northamptonshire auction house and returned to Raine, Countess Spencer.

Raine Spencer, Countess Spencer

I have see Charles and Camilla referred to as Prince George's "grandparents" many times over the past few months. If Camilla is to be classed as this, then why is Raine Spencer never referred to as the great grandmother? She was married to Princess Diana's father for 16 years until she was widowed.

I often wonder how close the connection to that part of the family is. I noticed that they are hardly ever mentioned anywhere. Its a shame that Dianas side of the family seem to be more like outcasts than anything. I wonder why there isnt more closeness.
