A British television channel is broadcasting a brand-new film on Princess Diana exploiting video videotapes in which she candidly examined her marriage both problems and her strained relationship with the royal family.
The records of Diana speaking to her spokesperson manager in the early 1990 s included her description of how Queen Elizabeth II reacted when she asked for admonition about her failing wedlock. She said the queen informed her: “I don’t know what you should do.”
Diana likewise talked about descending “deeply in love” with a soul widely believed to be her protection officer, Barry Mannakee.
Excerpts of the recordings were aired in the U.S. in 2004 but they have never been screened in Britain. The documentary airs Aug. 6 on Channel 4.
Diana died in a Paris car crash on Aug. 31, 1997.
