I think to some degree the interview didn't reveal too much, I mean we knew the majority of what was said because of the Morton book. I still don't know how to interpret the whole Charles shouldn't be king comment a part of me thinks she didn't mean it in a bad way but then the other half of my head goes come on this is Diana she usually had a reason behind these types of comments. I dunno if Charles thought doing his interview would help cause it seems like it really didn't. I think in the long run the Panorama was a bad idea but I think the immediate response wasn't too bad. The first time I saw I didn't see what the big fuss was about.

Both interviews did more bad than good, but the Panorama program did win Diana some sympathy and that's what she intended. She didn't neccesarily reveal a lot in the interview, but it was directly from her mouth, so people got more confirmation these things were true than if they read them in the Morton book- I think that was the power of the interview. I don't know what to make of the comment with regards to Charles either, although I can understand if she felt that way.

How do you know what she intended? You can only surmise from your own thoughts. You have no idea what she intended. I think that from her standpoint she was furious and "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". She was, certainly, the scorned woman. Perhaps, it was sheer anger.

Well, the way she dressed in the interview makes you wonder if she wasn't trying to get sympathy.. or maybe to word it better, trying to project the image of herself as being the scorned woman, which she was. Certainly, she did the interview with an eye to the public, I guess that's all we can say. She was defintely trying to upstage Charles when she wore the black dress to the Serpentine gallery opening.

When looking at the Panorama Interview I see a woman who was angry scorned and vindictive but also sad and hurt because her marriage had failed disastrously. The interview was one of the biggest mistakes she made in her life; and its good that the Princess realized it before she passed.

I agree, you summed that up very well. So many emotions to handle, and this is the result.

If Diana had lived I would have loved to known what she thought about the things she did in the past (IE: Morton Book, Panorama , the way she treated her friends etc) I hope she would have grown up and realized her mistakes. You know I just wanted to add that I kinda don't know why Diana did alot of the things she did was she hurt, angry was she doing it for attention but I wish she had been around longer I would have loved to seen what she would have been like now at a much wiser age.

I read in the Judy Wade bio of Diana recently that Diana said to someone that she did the Panorama interview and admitted some of the things she admitted in it ( as this person was wondering why she admitted some of these things), because she thought people could relate to it. Thus, since she was admitting it, it was easier for people coping with things like that in their own life, if they also knew that Diana dealt with things like that too. Certainly that's true. The Morton book although not officially endorsed by Diana kind of served the same purpose though.

Well, I understood her reasoning behind it, especially after Charles went public with his adultery. BUT...it was suicide for her. How could her sons watch it without squirming? How could anyone?!? If you remember, after this, the Queen had enough and told them to get it over with, and quickly.

I agree with you Duchessmary. It was suicide for Diana at Royal family

She shouldn't have done it, although, one can understand it. Hell hath no fury....She would have been the heroine, she allowed herself to be pushed down. Other than her death, which was tragic, I am sure her anger overwehlmed her from the very beginning, but it didn't help. It had to be difficult to married to a philanderer from the outset.

Countess very well written on Diana, Princess of Wales' emotional personality for 17 years with Prince Charles and the BRF.

I know,is so tragic to see how could one wonderful person who dedicated everything to the public will end like this,is so cruel!
It was a big step making this interview!
Thanks for comment!

She was an open person,so she couldn't hide anymore inside...It's such a shame that they killed her...She was human,that's why nobody from the Royal Family accepted this,because she had a close contact with people and revealed secrets from the Royal House...I admire her for this brave,but it end so tragic...

Who killed her???? Diana was killed by her own foolish actions. She chose to forego her Royal Protection Officers (Which HM was more than prepared for her to retain), she got into a car with a driver who was, at best, erratic and she failed to ensure that her seatbelt was fastened. On the whole - death by foolishness and misadventure!

Quite right, Diana was killed by her own stupidty. But IMO i think we have a Diana Fan who might believe she was killed by either the press or the royal family.

The Panorama Interview was a massive mistake IMO, it was the start of the real end.

For a person with personality is a big step,for someone with fear is a mistake.

Going back to the Panorama video, I remember at the time thinking how nice it is to hear Diana talking, but I was abit unhappy about how much she said and the way she said it. She didn't actually reveal very much that we didn't know already.
I do wonder how things would have turned out had the interview not taken place and had Diana not been killed. All these revelations at the time I think were abit too much as it seemd to be turning into a soap opera. I'm all for "the public have a right to know" but really and truely there is a limit for me how much details and revelation I can handle!
The difficulties between Charles and Diana would, by today, have been abit more palatable to the public and particularly fans of Diana had she been alive today and getting on with her life.
