A new movie about Princess Diana has just been released: ‘Diana’ by Oliver Hirschbiegel starring Naomi Watts (incredible characterization!), Naveen Andrews and Douglas Hodge. Stephen Jeffreys wrote the screenplay and Kate Snell the previous book.
The movie focus on the last two years of her life, when Princess Diana starts a secret love affair with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan. Interesting time for this great woman!
However, how about her childhood? Why was Princess Diana so nice, friendly mother and worried about poor people? Why does she finish with a Pakistani doctor beyond Royal rules?
Diana was born on 1 July 1961, in Park House, Sandringham, Norfolk. She was the fourth of five children of Viscount and Viscountess Althorp (The Spencers). They were hoping for a boy to carry on the family line, and no name was chosen for her for a week. In fact, her brother John had died only a year before she was born.
They were bad moments for the family. His father wanted a boy and pressed too much her mother. It was the beginning of their problematic divorce.
She was eight years old when her parents divorced after her mother had an affair with Peter Shand Kydd.
Fights and more fights. Finally, Lord Althorp won custody of Diana with support from his former mother-in-law,Lady Fermoy and began a relationship with Raine, Countess of Dartmouth, unpopular with Diana.
All these bad experiences influenced Diana love for children. Soon, she began working at the Young England School and when she will be princess, she will continue working on charity organizations and children causes.
Also, we imagine how she disliked English posh society and why she preferred to know other cultures. For example, Hasnat Khan culture.
Her unhappy marriage was the straw that broke the camel!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
