Quotes

Interviewer: Right, questions, here we are. Yeah, has anything come up since the last meeting? Any after thoughts?
Princess Diana: Well, only about being accused very early on of stopping him hunting and shooting.
Interviewer: Let's now go back to the other life before this life, as it were. Your first memory after being born, so anything as a child.
Princess Diana: I mean it was an unhappy childhood. I remember seeing my father slap mother across the face and I was hiding behind a door. And she was crying.

The People's Princess
6 December 2020 | by dianakomavliSee all my reviews

This documentary solidifies what I read in Andrew Morton's book many years ago. One wonders Diana's motivation for bringing out into the public all the intricacies of her private life. I imagine she felt completely alone, and I learned from the film that many in the monarchy blamed her for her failed marriage. This was a way for Diana to be heard. It really does make me look at Charles and the Queen as completely unaware, selfish people who completely disregarded (or didn't care) that Charles was marrying a child who may have needed more time and care to grow into her role as princess. He was too busy swanning off to his lover, Camilla.

In time, Diana was able to find her role in the monarchy: the People's princess. She seemed to have a genuine concern for the downtrodden, the marginalized. She related to them. So sorry that she left us so soon.
