Princess Diana (†36) Spicy footage revealed: Marrying King Charles was ‘ridiculous’
Explosive tape recordings of Princess Diana were released 26 years after her death. They don’t leave a good hair on their ex-husband, King Charles III.
Princess Diana († 36) recorded a large number of tapes for her biographer Andrew Morton (70) in the 1990s. In over seven hours of listening material, the “Diana cassettes” reveal the insults the Princess of Wales, who died in 1997, had to endure at the British court. Many of the statements were later included in Morton’s bestseller Diana: Her True Story; many are still awaiting publication. As “DailyMail” reports, more spicy photos have now come to light that are related to her marriage to King Charles III. (74) leave no good hair.
Princess Diana on marriage to King Charles: ‘The whole thing was ridiculous’
The media spoke of a fairy tale wedding when Diana and Charles tied the knot on July 29, 1981 at St. Paul’s Cathedral. But hardly anyone knew what the heart of the bride really looked like. Only on the tapes did Diana reveal how the wedding felt for the then 20-year-old. “It was so grown-up,” Diana recalled cynically years later. “This is Diana, a kindergarten teacher. I mean, the whole thing was ridiculous.”
On another recording, Diana remembers a statement on the occasion of the christening of her son Prince Harry (38). Charles is said to have gone to Diana’s mother Frances Shand Kydd († 2004) and told her: “We are so disappointed, we thought it was a girl.” A statement that enraged Diana’s mother. “Mom washed his head and said, ‘You should realize how lucky you are to have a normal child,'” Diana continued.
Princess Diana: She hated her stepmother
But Diana is also harsh on her own family members. She doesn’t say a good word on the tapes about her stepmother Raine Spencer, whom her father married in 1976 after his separation from Frances. After John’s death in 1992, Raine left the Althrop family home due to a strained relationship with her stepdaughter. “I was so angry,” Diana recalls. “I said to her, ‘I hate you so much. If you only knew how much we all hate you for what you did’.”
Diana accused her stepmother of “ruining the house” and squandering her father’s money. Raine, on the other hand, claimed that Diana’s mother caused her father a lot of pain, which enraged the Princess of Wales even more. “In my job and in my role, I see people suffering like you’ve never seen it before. And you call it pain?” Diana is said to have answered at the time. “I said, ‘You still have a lot to learn’.”
The new footage is expected to be featured in a documentary on Disney+ early next year. The documentary is a sequel to the production “Diana: In Her Own Words”, which was broadcast in 2017. Despite the explosive nature of the film for members of the British royal family, producer Tom Jennings is pushing for the release. “As part of Diana’s legacy, it’s important that more of these tapes are heard,” said the filmmaker.
