Those pictures are good! ;) But she would have looked better without the hair cut of a 65 years old woman that she wore most of her life. My grandmother literally has a similar cut(she really does!). IMO, it looks weird in a young woman.

New Diana exhibition and photos
 
Hi all.

{ed}

Believe me, it's a brilliant, very powerful exhibition (the photos are seriously big!), if you're in London anytime between now and 2007 (when it's due to move out of KP) do try to go as you won't regret it.

Kindest regards,
Joanne

That was uncalled for. Those pics were to be used for charity auction of her dresses. Some weren't used. Just proves that there are still many of us out there who love her and appreciate her.

BeatrixFan 11-24-2005 06:03 PM

No it wasn't uncalled for. It was a genuine question. Did she want to be a Princess and mother of a King or did she want to be a Supermodel? Do you believe these were taken for charity auctions? She was a vain person and as far as I can see, they were shots to fuel her ego.

Beatrixfan, I am watching you follow me from forum to forum to see what I say and do to annoy me. I have contacted the moderators.

BeatrixFan 11-24-2005 06:09 PM

NO. It's a serious question. Just because you don't like it, don't refer to me as a trouble maker. Can anyone apart from tiaraprin, answer me whether Diana wanted to be a Princess or a Supermodel?

I think she didn't want to be a Princess in the way Buckingham Palace defined it. As far as wanting to be a supermodel? Well, Princess Caroline who had the model looks tried it out in the 70s and decided it wasn't for her so I don't think one shoot means Diana wanted to be a supermodel.l

BeatrixFan 11-24-2005 06:24 PM

Thanks Ysbel. This is the strange thing. One minute she was in a foreign country, in the dirt cuddling babies and preaching about landmines, declaring her wish to serve humanity and bring world peace- the next she was posing in skimpy dresses like a supermodel and appearing in hollywood with a split up her dress and sleeping around. It makes no sense. She was a mixed up character and I think these photographs show that more than anything else.

Yeah, I agree, she had an identity crisis. She seemed to try on different personas to see which one would fit. A lot of women do that in their twenties and thirties. They're usually single though and don't have the whole world watching.

BeatrixFan 11-24-2005 06:31 PM

Well, I've asked a question and I've got sensible answers. I haven't bashed her in anyway. I asked a serious question and you dismissed me as a trouble maker. You are not a moderator tiaraprin, however much you want to defend Diana. This is a discussion forum, not a forum to fawn over her.

Well, everyone is allowed to be inconsistent. Prince Charles says a lot of sensible things about environmental preservation, and then he does things like having a low-mileage car toted around Europe for him to drive or (assuming these people aren't lying) having someone drive all the way from Highgrove to London to pick up a box of chocolates for his granny's birthday because he forgot to take them. You can find these sorts of incinsistencies anywhere if you have the notion to look for them. Humans, after all, aren't Vulcan. (live long and prosper \\ //)

BeatrixFan 11-24-2005 08:26 PM

True. But being a hypocrite and showing signs of multi-personality disorder are two different things Elspeth. From stories I've heard, I believe she was suffering from an illness such as multi-personality disorder.

Princess Stephanie really tried to be a model.

Elspeth 11-24-2005 08:30 PM

I've heard people say she might have had borderline personality disorder, but I can't say I've ever heard this stuff about multiple personalities. I think that's a different sort of disorder entirely from the sort of lack of confidence she had about her identity.

Yeah, I don't think Diana had multiple personality disorder. I just think she married young before she knew who she was. What is borderline personality disorder?

  1. Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment. Note: Do not include suicidal or self-mutilating behavior covered in (5).
  2. A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation. This is called "splitting."
  3. Identity disturbance: markedly and persistently unstable self-image or sense of self.
  4. Impulsivity in at least two areas that are potentially self-damaging (e.g., spending, sex, substance abuse, reckless driving, binge eating). Note: Do not include suicidal or self-mutilating behavior covered in (5).
  5. Recurrent suicidal behavior, gestures, or threats, or self-mutilating behavior.
  6. Affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood (e.g., intense episodic dysphoria, irritability, or anxiety usually lasting a few hours and only rarely more than a few days).
  7. Chronic feelings of emptiness.
  8. Inappropriate, intense anger or difficulty controlling anger (e.g., frequent displays of temper, constant anger, recurrent physical fights).
  9. Transient, stress-related paranoid ideation or severe dissociative symptoms.

BeatrixFan 11-24-2005 08:42 PM

I think borderline personality disorder is the new way of refering to multiple personality disorder. Not being a phsyciatrist I didn't know that. There are two reasons for me thinking this;

1) Diana once took her private secretary on holiday with her to the Maldives. Diana insisted she have whatever she wanted and lavished all sorts on her. Then, on the last day, they were laying by the pool and Diana said, "I'll get them to give you your half of the bill" and walked off. Diana had made it clear that the holiday was on her. But then she snapped. The secretary phoned Charles in tears - she couldn't pay it. Diana remained firm and said she had to and in the end, Charles stepped in and paid the entire bill.

2) A maid who lived in a small cottage in the grounds of Highgrove (I think but I'll check) was dating a bodyguard and Diana hated it. One minute she told the maid that she was happy for her but that she shouldnt mix work and pleasure and the next she demanded that the bodyguard be sacked. He was. He went to the cottage and Diana saw him. She flew out, in the middle of the night - wearing only her nightie and hammered on the door screaming, "I know you've got him in there. Get him out! You're disgusting!". And the maid was later sacked.

Then there's the incident with Raine and the stairs, the panorama interview, the Burrell revelations (he said she would kick her shoes off and want to hear the latest gossip one minute and would play the imperious princess the next).....it's all strange to me.

Uh, no. Disassociative Identity Disorder is the "NEW" way to refer to Multiple Personality Disorder. Both MPD and BPD are OLD terms. Please do a little research before making unfounded accusations.

ysbel 11-24-2005 08:47 PM

Thanks ladies. :)

That's not multiple personality disorder. Multiple personality disorder is when your consciousness actually splits in different people with different names, histories, relationships, etc. The main personality may not even know that the others exist so they experience blackouts of long periods of time when they don't remember anything.

That's not what Diana had, if so, she wouldn't have been able to function at all.

There was a book and movie out in the 70s about a multiple personality disorder. It's called Sybil.

Yes, there is no evidence that she had "alters," that she lost time or that she committed acts that she had no awareness of later-all hallmarks of MPD.

I didn't make an accusation, I said I believe she was suffering from multi-personality disorder. I apologise for not being a brain surgeon. Let me rephrase my opinion. She was suffering from a mental illness that caused her to be all sweetness and light one moment and hard and bitchy the next. (Ok?)

Okay! Let me put ot this way. You made assertions that were based in a world of ignorance that could have been remedied by a few clicks on GOOGLE. {personal remark deleted - Elspeth}

ysbel 11-24-2005 08:59 PM

It's OK BeatrixFan. It is confusing. I went to do a Google search on multiple personality disorder and found they changed the name to dissociative personality disorder. All these disorders sound alike.

BeatrixFan 11-24-2005 08:59 PM

I am making a claim that Diana had personality issues. She was one thing at one time and another at others depending on what suited her. I am not a trouble maker or an attention-seeker which Diana supporters seem to brand someone when they make a post that isn't complimentary about their divine leader. I believe that she had mental problems based on the examples given. Lets discuss that. They are not fantastical claims at all.

Well maybe she had the Queen Mum disease because that is one old lady I think could turn from super sweet to downright vindictive without blinking an eye. ;)

I don't think the Queen Mum had a disorder but the different sides of her were really different!

Alexandria 11-24-2005 09:02 PM

Can we please get back on topic to the new exhibit of Princess Diana photos by Mario Testino. This discussion has become increasingly derailed by this line of discussion.

It was never confirmed by anyone officially associated with Princess Diana that she had a personality disorder of any sort, whether it be multiple personality disorder, disassociative personality disorder, border personality disorder, etc. And as it was never confirmed, and mere speculation by everyone, that is against our Forum Posting Rules & Guidelines.

Alexandria,

With all due respect, the point I was making that these photographs seem to show that Diana had two sides to her and those sides were hard to comprehend and maybe a mental illness was the reason behind her apparant two faces. I wasn't speculating - it was a sudden medical journal discussion that derailed the discussion.

Zonk 11-24-2005 09:06 PM

Thank you Alexandria!

The photos look great! I am definitely planning a trip to London in 2006 and will check out the exhibit.

Thank you Alexandria!

We all have two sides, it's human to talk one day about serious things (like landmines, poor children, etc) and the other day about superficial things (like fashion). Princess Mary also did photos for Vogue in a very glamourous way and it doesn't seem she wanted to be a supermodel or she had a menthal illness.

I'm glad her sons liked this exhibition! :) I would like to see it too.

BeatrixFan 11-25-2005 03:17 PM

It isn't obvious. Will you please stop applauding peoples posts just because they disagree with me or any other Charles and Camilla supporter. Its so tiresome. It isn't obvious hence why I asked the question.

Zonk 11-25-2005 03:32 PM

Everyone needs to relax :)

I don't see anything wrong with having separate and sometimes divergent interests. There is nothing wrong with playing dress up and doing model shots especially when you are taking photos for a fundraising book. I guess thats why there is a company in the states that does Glamour photos for ordinary people. In addition, if you have a desire to do something (landmines, community service, etc.) are we saying that you can only do one or the other. So any model who has a desire to do something meanfingul in the world should be told not to bother?

BeatrixFan 11-25-2005 03:35 PM

Thats true Zonk. The thing I can't understand is what she actually wanted. Did she want to be a glamour model or a Princess. And were these pics for a fundraising book or were they to fuel her pleasure for having other people look at her?

Zonk 11-25-2005 03:41 PM

I believe those photos were taken for the Christie's catalog ( I believe they did the auction) when she was selling off her dresses for charity. Please correct me if I am wrong about the auction house :)

I don't think she wanted to be either. Truthfully I think she wanted to be a wife and mother. Now I know you probably won't agree with me :) BUT while I think Diana had extremely low self esteem (of which a lot of people will agree too) and it doesn't help when the man you are married to loves someone else and you have no self value. You have to get your appreciation from other people. I also think (recognizing this is not the thread for it...so moderators..I am sorry) that by getting married at 19 she didn't have time to define personality before marriage and so she was constantly figuring it out during the marriage. I, personally, am not in favor of anyone getting married too young (not to offend anyone who did because it works for some people) because she really don't have time to develop into the real Diana.

That's true. I definitely agree with you Zonk about early marriages.

I've seen a few high school sweethearts marry in their teens but these people have known each other their whole lives and even then it sometimes doesn't work out.

Well, when people are fully mature, they learn to get appreciation from themselves but you're right when we're very young we look to other people for approval.

I still see Diana as having a performer's personality. I think she would have needed the public affection even if she had had a loving husband and children. She reminds me of Maria Callas who regularly went onstage although she was quite happy with Aristotle Onassis. He couldn't understand why, if he loved her, that she had to leave him every weekend and go onstage. She definitely didn't need the money but she needed the public acclaim.

There's nothing wrong with that, some of my best friends are in the arts and definitely fall into that category. But the need for public acclaim can be very hard on relationships with significant others. It helps if you can find it to have a satisfying private relationship with someone because otherwise at the end of the day, you're going home alone to an empty house.

Ysbel...I totally agree. And it has been said before that when Diana went home she was often alone.

So back to the topic....well sort of. I have never been to Kensington Palace before..are there any other exhibits to see?

I'm glad her sons liked this exhibition! :) I would like to see it too.


AMEN, I agree with you again, please let diana rest in peace, she never will be forget because she was a great person, she never was useless, the land mines, the AIDS, the homeless, the children etc etc, she help many people, not only she help the body, she help the soul.
She was a princess, a mother, a mother (for me, in testeino's photos she look like a REAL WOMEN, she not like a supermodel), a wife, a sister, a friend, a humanitarian, A REAL PERSON.
MAny people love her and another not love her, she is gone, please don's offend her memory.

I LOVE TESTINO'S PHOTOS, she look sooooo beautiful, so alive.
Nobody can be like her, she look bettet than many supermodels and many princess ..why?, well because she look human (a close person to us), she don't look artificial, no sugery, on botox, only like her was. She look in testino'sp photos like DIANA ITSELF. She was a person like you, like me, why she was so special for many people, well becuse she was like she was, she never need change.

We would but there are people who keep dragging her up every five minutes when some of us would rather leave her in 1997 and concentrate on 2005.

I have often read that style is something people are born with-either they have it or they do not. In Diana's case, this is untrue. She has a horrid dress sense in the beginning. Also, dear ones, no one but a stripper should ever be photographed with her knees this far apart in a dress.

That may be your opinion BeatrixFan, it was never confirmed she had a multi-personality disorder. I see it as a young girl who got married to a older prince and was expected to behave like him, always sensible, always in line, and she was only 21! She had to grow up overnight by marrying him and become the perfect princess everyone wanted her to be, even at the extent of not letting her true fun loving nature be exposed. I think finally after her divorce she could let go a little and why not? Why not take pictures that make you feel happy about yourself and show the world that you are a happy human being and finally have a chance to smile. Look at with her kids too, do you really think she would have been such a fun mother if her childhood hadn't have been so bad? Everything happens for a reason, and I think just because she does charity work doesn't mean she can't have fun once in a while, were all humans and we should be able to act like one whether you're royal or not. I think these are very nice pictures of Diana.

Are you sure? I am to young to remember her but I know that there are a lot of people who help others more than she did. She was just another celebrity.

She helped in the attitude people had against AIDS. Her step of shaking hands with someone with AIDS in 1987 was remarkable.

Diana, Princess of Wales at her most beautiful: the last portrait session by Mario Testino

Just five months before her tragic death in August 1997, Princess Diana was photographed by Mario Testino for Vanity Fair. Diana, Princess of Wales by Mario Testino at Kensington Palace brings together the most beautiful images from this last portrait sitting, displaying Diana in a state of relaxation and intimacy unlike any other. The selection of about seventy photographs includes many unseen images which, alongside previously published images, fill in the untold story of the shoot.

Off topic for this thread but in response to this statement I must point out that Gay communities in Australia, North America and Europe (at least) have a debt of gratitude to Princess Diana for her work in humanising HIV/AIDS. She did a great deal in reducing the stigma, and whatever the ups and downs of her personal life this is something in which she definitely made a difference. How many others, "celebrities" or public figures, can make the same claim?

Thanks for the pictures Rchainho! I just got the Testino book this week and love it! The pictures are amazing! Some of the pictures are a bit out of focus (that can happen when a photographer shoots in natural light, without a flash). But Diana was so photogenic (& Testino such a genius), that even the out of focus pics seem like works of art! I'd highly recommend this book for any Diana "fan".

Asmadasitgets2003 has already posted some fabulous pics in the Diana ... picture thread, part 3 (post #6). Here are two more ...

I'm in tears now, I miss her so much, this world needs her... maybe she was too angel to this world, she deserves something better
