At the age of 36, Princess Diana passed away in a Paris car crash in 1997.
Before her death, they were reports that the Queen and her ex-husband Prince Charles wanted to separate her from her children, Williams and Harry, and also they wanted her ex-husband to marry another woman.
During Diana’s lifetime, she was often chased by paparazzi and they were willing to pay $500,000 for grainy pictures of her. It’s safe to say she’s the most photographed person in the world.
Princess Diana got married to Prince Charles in 1981 in St Paul’s Cathedral in London. In 1982 they welcomed their first child, Prince William, and the next two years they welcomed their second and last child, Prince Harry.
In 1986, Prince Charles started having an affair with Camila while still married to Princess Diana.
Princess Diana found out about it and confronted Camilla.
Camilla recalled Diana saying in a tape released by The Telegraph, as quoted by Town & Country, “I know what’s going on between you and Charles and I just want you to know that.
“[Diana] said to me: ‘You’ve got everything you ever wanted. You’ve got all the men in the world falling in love with you and you’ve got two beautiful children, what more do you want?’”
“So I said, ‘I want my husband.’ And I said, ‘I’m sorry I’m in the way and it must be hell for both of you. But I do know what’s going on. Don’t treat me like an idiot,’” Camilla explained.
Diana was least worried about her husband’s affairs what troubled her the most was the plot to separate her from the kids.
Hodgson wrote, as quoted by Express, “She was well aware that the Queen had the constitutional right and authority under common law to take control of both boys’ care and education.
As such she could become the boys’ guardian or even appoint one: this would probably be their father and that might lead to Diana’s exclusion if she finally burned all her bridges with the Royal Family.”
Diana wasn’t only worried about the royal family taking her kids, she also believed that there was a plot to kill her.
Ten months before her death, she mentioned to her butler, Paul Burrel to hold onto her letters warning him that there is a plot to kill her in a car crash.
The letter read, as first reported by Daily Mirror back in 2003, “I am sitting here at my desk today in October, longing for someone to hug me and encourage me to keep strong and hold my head high.
This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous. XXXXX is planning ‘an accident in my car, brake failure, and serious head injury.”
The newspaper claims they know the name that was covered but chose to withhold it.
Burrel told the newspaper, “With the benefit of hindsight, the content of that letter has bothered me since her death.”
Princess Diana might be gone but she can never be forgotten.
