Prince Charles made ‘offensive’ comment about Princess Diana days after dying: book

Inheritor to the throne Prince Charles allegedly made “offensive” feedback about his ex-wife, Princess Diana, to her brother days after her 1997 dying, a brand new book claims.

Historian Robert Lacey writes in “Battle of Brothers: The Inside Story of a Household in Tumult” that Charles made the comment to Diana’s brother, Charles, ninth Earl Spencer, because the ex-in-laws feuded over funeral preparations. Apparently, Spencer objected to his nephews strolling the whole lot of a public funeral procession behind their mom’s casket.

“Prince Charles had little question that he ought to stroll the lengthy route with each his sons beside him,” Lacey wrote in excerpts obtained by Folks, “However Uncle Charles Spencer didn’t agree. He was already indignant on his household’s behalf that his sister’s funeral had been hijacked right into a royal event, and he was notably against the concept his younger nephews ought to need to stroll the very best a part of a mile behind their mom’s coffin by way of the streets.”

“Spencer felt fairly certain that Diana would have been horrified on the thought of her sons having to endure such an ordeal,” Lacey added. “He had already informed Charles as a lot.” One contentions name between them “had ended with the earl slamming down the telephone on his brother-in-law after Charles had made a very offensive comment about Diana.”

In the long run, each William and Harry joined their father, Spencer and their grandfather Prince Philip for the prolonged procession. The service occurred Sept. 6, 1997, six days after her dying on account of a automobile crash in Paris.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana married in 1981, separated in 1992 and finalized their divorce in 1996.
