well not that much... just that charles' has always tended to go for friends who were his own age or often significantly older. But I suppose because OH was Di's lover one tends to think of him as being around her age. So it was a schok to hear of his death and that he was in his 70s...

Talking about Diana's friends, I only know only a few. Jemima Goldsmith was one of her close friends and the Spanish royal family was quite close to her too. In one of her interviews, Diana said that the Spanish royals were the family she never had

I didn't think she met them all tht often. I would have said she was closer at least for a time to the Fayed family.. or the Goldsmiths where she used to visit every Sunday for a bit...

Where did she say that? I didn't get the impression that she liked Juan Carlos at all... and she knew the SRF as Charles's relatives and friends, so I think it unlikely that they were people she had a great affection for....

One of her ladies-in-waiting was her sister Sarah McCorquodale.

Sarah was not an official lady in waiting. She sometimes acted as one later in Diana's life.. accompaniying her to functions etc. But she wasn't a lady in waiting.. Anne Beckwith Smith was Di's chief lady in waiting for many years.. I don't know if she had other

Anne was certainly with Diana for the Australia tour in 1983 and stayed with her for nine years, becoming her friend and eventually Private Secretary.

This is an article about Diana, Anne and other ladies in waiting.

According to what I've read Susan Hussey was connected to Diana in the beginning of her marriage but I don't think she had a formal appointment with her.

No Susan Hussey was the queen's lady in waiting. Diana must have had other ladies...

I do niot know if it is true or not, but it was rumoured that Diana and Juan Carlos had an affair.

Wasn't the rumour that old JC tried to have it off with Diana but that she refused.

I read that she couldn't stand Juan Carlos, and she would certainly have had to have had some chutzpah to sleep with him when her husband and his wife were around, at the time of that visit!

^ There's Alexandra Lloyd, later Byalt who was a school friend of Diana's and became her lady in waiting at the beginning of the 1990s.

I doubt it very much...and if she had done so I doubt if she would have felt like the Spanish RF was "warm and friendly" with her...

The Spanish royal family is known as a far more welcoming, hugging type of family than the 1980's British royal family. It is easy to interpret this as "warm and friendly with Diana'.

Lavinia Baring and Hazel West were other ladies in waiting appointed three months after Diana's marriage, according to Sarah Bradford.
