I don't think so... I think that most of us have read something written by Di's staff or about them, and formed an opinion..
I don't like these books written by staff, but i have read some bits of them, and other things... my general impression of Diana with staff was that in many ways she was a kindly boss, and in some ways more understanding than other royals. However she did have trust issues and at times she did seem to get too friendly with people who worked for her, but then seemed to feel that they were taking advantage of her. One or 2 staff have written books, and have been usually rather cirtical of her.. but in point of fact most staff HAVENT.

Adeane disagreed with this approach and so he resigned.
Probalby a bit of both. I think that he did find Diana a bit hard to get on with because she was not very educated, and he had to try and give her tutition.. but he and other staff disagreed with Charlres about HIS things at times...
