THE PERSON TO SAY THE ‘FINAL WORD’ WOULD COME AGAINST
Diana, Queen Elizabeth II and he would go to the cottage in Balmoral, where his family was. In other words, he would appear before the person who would say the “last word”… He would meet his future mother-in-law.
ACTUALLY, THE ROYAL FAMILY WAS NOT THAT OUTSTANDING
Although Diana Spencer was not a member of any royal family, Mountbatten was not a stranger to the Windsor family. Or, to put it in textbook terms, “There were close ties between the British royal family and his own.” Diana’s father, Edward John Spencer, was a nobleman and a military officer in charge of the royal family’s horses. That’s not all…
HE PLAYED WITH THE QUEEN’S TWO SONS AS A CHILD
Diana’s grandmothers were also among the Queen’s bridesmaids. Moreover, Diana had grown up playing with the Queen and Prince Philip’s middle son Andrew and younger son Edward. So to sum it up, Diana Spencer wasn’t that common, she was the upper-class commoner.
HE KNEW HOW TO AFFECT THE FAMILY
If we go back to the beginning… That meeting in 1980 was not an ordinary meeting. Young Diana Spencer was like a “candidate auditioned” opposite Queen Elizabeth II. Diana Spencer was nervous that she was nervous that day, but she also knew how it would affect the family. This is the claim of Tina Brown in her biography book published in 2007. According to Brown, Diana the fish He went to catch a hold, mounted a horse, and let the strong Scottish wind ruffle his hair.
THE QUEEN FOUND IT ATTRACTIVE AND SUITABLE FOR THE FAMILY
According to the lines in Tina Brown’s book, “The Queen found this young girl ‘attractive and suitable for her family’. Then the story of Diana Spencer and Prince Charles began with a sad ending. On July 29, 1981, Diana Spencer and Prince Charles , married in a flamboyant ceremony that the whole world talked about for a long time. They had two children, but the marriage did not go well. Later on, the couple divorced. Finally, at the age of 36, he died in an accident, the veil of which was not cleared even in 25 years. Moreover, his lover Dodi El The driver who was driving the vehicle with Fayed did not survive this accident either.
It has been the subject of movies and books: This shy-eyed young girl’s wedding to the British royal palace, her acceptance as the future queen by the public, her unhappy marriage, and her death at a young age have inspired many films and books in the intervening period.
THEY TRIED TO UNDERSTAND AND UNDERSTAND
As for Diana Spencer’s relationship with her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II… It was always a difficult relationship to understand and explain. Queen Elizabeth II, as usual, always avoided commenting on family matters. Over the years, royal watchers like Tina Brown have tried to unravel and understand this relationship, “by loop”, so to speak.
HE WAS A PEOPLE, BUT HE WAS HIGH: The consensus of these royal watchers was that the Queen would approve of Diana in the first place. Yes, Diana was an ordinary, commoner. But she was upper class. This was, of course, a “game-changing” feature.
NOT DIRECTLY TALKED BUT THE QUEEN APPROVED
According to Ingrid Seward, who is best known for her book The Queen and Di, Prince Charles was closer to his mother than ever before in his life. They spent time together while they were at Buckingham Palace. Diana became one of the topics of conversation. Although the marriage was not talked about directly, the Queen made it clear with her gestures that she approved of the young woman she saw at Balmoral Castle.
HE FIND THE QUEEN SCARY
After Princess Diana and Prince Charles got married, the young bride’s relationship with her mother-in-law did not become very warm. Diana stayed away from the Queen. In fact, Diana found the Queen endearing but also terrifying. In the following period, problems began in the marriage of Diana and Charles. As a result of this, the tension between Diana and the British royal family increased, and tensions began to arise. Diana’s struggle with bulimia increased this tension.
‘HE HOLD DIANA RESPONSIBLE FOR MARRIAGE GOING WORTH’
Princess Diana explained in a conversation with biographer Andrew Morton that she believed the Queen blamed her for the failure of their marriage to Charles. Diana had this to say: “She told me that the reason our marriage went downhill was because Charles was having a hard time because of my bulimia.”
HE WAS SEEN AS THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM, NOT A SYMPTON: Based on these words, Morton made the assessment that “according to Diana’s words, the family saw bulimia as the cause, not as a symptom of the troubled marriage.”
HE WANTED TO SEE YOU, CRYING THREE TIMES IN HALF HOURS’
Writer and royal watchdog Ingrid Seaward described Diana’s experience as she once stopped by to meet with the Queen: “One afternoon, Diana stopped by the Queen to talk to her. Then one of the servants at the palace told her, “Princess; She cried three times in half an hour while she waited to see you.” The Queen’s response was, “I talked to her for an hour and she cried nonstop.”
‘CHARLES DISAPPOINTED THE MONARCHY’
Again, in Ingrid Seward’s view, Princess Diana was saying that her husband Charles supported her and was a good father and husband even when allegations of extramarital affairs were swirling around. But that was not what he said to the Queen in private conversations. She was telling him that Charles had disgraced the monarchy, that it had disappointed him.
FINALLY, HE HAS BEEN SEEING DIANA LESS OUT: According to Seward’s writings, the Queen was no longer able to get along with her daughter-in-law, Diana. Here’s what she wrote about it: “The Queen began to see Diana less in order to get away from these problems.”
THERE WAS A COMMUNICATION PROBLEM BETWEEN TWO STRONG WOMEN’
Meanwhile, there are also comments suggesting that the Queen understands her daughter-in-law’s problems and wants to help her, but doesn’t know how. Patrick Jephson, who was Diana’s private secretary, is one of those who made this assessment. As she claimed in the documentary Two Golden Queens, Diana had hope that the Queen would somehow find a solution to the problems in her marriage. But there was a communication problem between Diana and the Queen, who came from two different generations. Moreover, these two women had strong characters. Jephson claimed that the Queen actually wanted to help Diana, but she had no idea how to do it.
‘THE PRINCESS OF THE PEOPLE’
Meanwhile, after Diana’s death, the Queen’s attitudes were also the subject of criticism. Elizabeth was on vacation in Scotland when Diana died in the crash in Paris. Although She heard of the accident, she remained there for a while. She even rejected the suggestion that the flag be halved at Buckingham Palace as a symbol of mourning. This was engraved in the memories as one of the events that the Queen gathered the intense anger of the people during her 70-year reign. The step that calmed the anger of the people at that time was the words of Tony Blair, who was the prime minister, about Diana, “the princess of that people”. (PHOTOS: ALAMY, AVALON)
