I think she may have drunk a little wine or champagne but she wasn't known for being a drinker.

The article makes no sense. If she met Diana in 1991 how could she have met her at the start of her marriage.

Any article the refers to Diana as Princess Diana is to be taken with a grain of salt.

Diana had red blotty, pimply skin through out her adult life. (So whatever her 'beauty secrets', it did not work.)

Diana was a drinker, not on level with her son Harry but she did drink.

I would put very little weight in this article. Princess Diana might have taken a drink but certainly not enough to effect her skin.

Anyone whoever met Diana always commented on her beautiful skin. In fact is was one of the points that her beautician made when referring to Diana's bulimia. It was possible that she had bouts of it but it was not as severe as Diana had said as her hair and skin were not affected.

I also find the comment on drinking odd, but love the pictures of Diana.

We know that there were drinking rumours in 1987, because Diana publicly spoke out against them when she received the Freedom of the City of London that year. That was the year that she gained back some weight as well. However, I don't think that anyone presented any evidence that she was drinking.

I've never read that Diana drank excessively at any time. Problems with food yes, alcohol no. She had good fresh colouring but I think she may have suffered a bit from rosacea.

What is it with all those former employees running to the media? At other courts "loyalty" still seems to have a meaning, apparently not so in the United Kingdom...

But there is something we didn't know, in the comments section of the article (always a good read on DM ) someone says she had a "Bio-Polar personality"
You read it here first folks

How sad. I do love that picture of Hollie and Diana.

Very sad to hear but hopefully Hollie and Diana have reunited.

Clapton described Diana as a 'manipulative and sick person'.

I will definitely read this book to see if he gives specifics and the timeline of their relationship.

The DM is assuming it started in 1992 but two of the photos appear to be from the 1980s.

The photos are from public events. Surely even those who did not like Diana must concede that its possible to meet someone in a formal situation and then years later begin an affair with them (if there was one). Those photos from the 80's are proof of nothing other than that Clapton played at events at which Diana was present.

Following your line of logic maybe Diana had affairs with everyone she met on a red carpet (I'm not being serious).

The stuff that people make up about this dead woman is sickening.

I can think of few more unappealing things than reading a book about Eric Clapton. The very mention that unsubstantiated "recollections" concerning Diana being included (as a way of selling the odd extra copy or two) convinces me it would be a waste of time and money.

I have my doubts that this is true. The source seems to be basing their information off the fact that Diana and Eric may have flirted a few times.

It seems the DM is getting the date from the book though. The author notes that this supposed relationship took place in 1993. Their source even states that, "they were both free agents".

If the author or book publisher had any knowledge that Eric and Diana had started a relationship while she was married, they would have used it as a selling point. The part about Diana seems more like a quick sentence or two in the book.

In 1993 Diana was still married - separated but still the wife of the heir to the throne.

I am a huge fan of his music. But we are discussing a man who very publically pursued the wife of a friend for years, penning hit after hit howling at the moon about overwhelming undying love ("Laaayla...got me on my knees"!) only to dump her after she was unable to give him children.

I don't care to read about him casting aspersions on the character of a woman long dead who can no longer defend herself.


ETA: Sounds like Carla Bruni put him through an emotional Cuisinart...oh I do believe in karma!
