Tonight on Channel 5’s Princess Diana: In Her Own Words a number of experts will explore Diana’s royal journey. In particular the documentary will track Diana’s journey from a royal wife, known as “shy Di”, to a global humanitarian known for her captivating speeches.
Diana and Charles announced they were separated in 1992.
They divorced in 1996. However, it seems that there was no love lost as Diana was famously never a fan of Sandringham.
Former royal cook Darren McGrady revealed Diana told him: “You couldn’t get away.”
He went on: “Sandringham was so tight, so compact.
The same documentary revealed how the Queen destroyed Diana’s hope to salvage marriage with Charles.
according to former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond, Diana had believed the marriage could continue with her and Charles becoming “partners” rather than a couple.
She revealed: “Diana was pretty unsettled with the divorce, she didn’t want the divorce, she told me, ‘It’s not something I want’.
“I think she felt somehow they could continue as separated but partners and parents to the two boys.”
