Princess Diana is one of the most loved members of the royal family even today. In fact, after her passing, royal fans continued to use her moniker, “People’s Princess”, because of the impact that she left behind. But according to one royal author, there’s another side to the Princess of Wales that not a lot of people knew about.
Princess Diana Was Insecure, Always Wanted To Be The First In Prince William And Prince Harry’s Lives
In the book The Palace Papers, royal author Tina Brown claimed that Princess Diana had some insecurities that affected the way she raised her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. In fact, after her falling out with Sarah Ferguson, the late royal reportedly banned Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie from seeing their cousins.
Brown claimed that Princess Diana had a tendency to cut people off, and that’s exactly what she did to Prince Andrew’s ex-wife and children.
“There was a destructive side to Diana’s mothering. [Her] rampant insecurity dictated that the Princess of Wales always needed to be first in her boys’ hearts,” Brown claimed (via Express).
But following her death, Prince William and Prince Harry managed to reunite with their cousins, and their relationship remains close to this day. However, royal expert Neil Sean suggested that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are closer to Prince Harry than Prince William.
Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie Distant From Prince Charles, Prince William
After all, the royal sisters are allegedly struggling to understand the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Charles’ decision to banish Prince Andrew from the royal fold.
“There is a big story breaking in the Royal Family that has remained under the radar largely, and it’s to do with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, and William’s father Prince Charles. According to very good sources, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice are seemingly struggling to remain cordial with Prince William, Catherine, and Charles. It stems from the deal organized by William, the Queen, and Prince Charles to remove their father, Prince Andrew from royal duties following his disgrace in recent years,” he said.
Prince Charles, Prince William Allegedly Want To Freeze Out Prince Andrew
However, it’s unclear if Brown and Sean’s claims are accurate. After all, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie have never once shared that they were distanced from Prince William and Prince Harry when they were much younger.
And the sisters have not also expressed any negative feelings toward Prince William and Prince Charles over their reported desire to have a slimmed-down monarch and freeze out Prince Andrew for good.
