Speaking exclusively to WHO, the book’s author Susanna De Vries explains that one of the most tragic royal stories was that of Princess Diana who, after being abandoned by her mother with the belief she didn’t love her, yearned for the affection of a man.
De Vries makes shocking claims about Diana’s father, Edward John Spencer, after her mother, Frances, left him for another man – Peter Shand Kydd.
At the age of 6, Diana watched her mum pack her bags and leave their family home. “Diana sat on the steps waiting for two days for her to come back without eating,” De Vries tells WHO.
“Then the Earl tells his staff to burn everything she’s sent from her mother. So every birthday and Christmas, this little girl waits for something from her mother and becomes convinced her mother didn’t love her.”
It was because of this that Diana was allegedly desperate to find a man who would love her, even if it were someone she didn’t choose herself.
The book also claims that the marriage between Diana and Charles was indeed arranged.
It is revealed that the Queen Mother assured her grandson that Diana was the perfect fit and would be an ideal wife for him, even though his true feelings lay with Camilla.
