Interesting. I noticed the similarities between Diana and the Duchess of Kent as well. From my subjective view on them I think they had a few things in common. They both seem/seemed quite sensitive for example....In the Duchess of Kent book, the author mentions that Katharine felt some of the same things that Diana felt in her marriage. No support from the BRF when she married into it, no compassion from the DoK when she was experiencing problems, the press heavy interest, etc.
Agreed. As Zonk mentioned above I too think that any young/beautiful Princess, especially Crown Princess, attracts a lot of attention and interest from the media and people all over. Not to play Diana down, but I think this would've happened to nearly every young and halfway good looking woman in this position and I think this will happen with Kate Middleton also, if she will be William's wife some day. Off topic, sorry!I didn't choose my words correctly above. The Royal Family was never unpopular, however, when Diana appeared, interest in the Royal Family soared because many in the press considered a breath of fresh air to a family that had become rather boring. She was a fresh face and energy.
