She even spoke candidly about her marriage.
In the BBC interview, she addressed Prince Charles’s longtime relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles: “A woman’s instinct is a very good one; obviously I had knowledge of it from people who minded and cared about our marriage … There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.”
The princess also didn’t deny her own affair when Bashir asked her if she was unfaithful with James Hewitt: “Yes, I adored him. Yes, I was in love with him. But I was very let down.” Within a month of the interview, Diana’s press secretary had resigned and the Queen sent the couple a letter urging them to divorce.
