Princess Diana ‘CRIED’ herself to sleep night Harry was born over Charles
Princess Diana cried herself to sleep the night Harry was born because her husband Prince Charles told her his “duty was done”, according to her butler Paul Burrell.
A new documentary Diana’s ‘Wicked’ Stepmother aired on Channel 4 tonight, and it revealed the incredibly strained relationship between the Princess of Wales and her countess stepmother.
But amid the struggle between the two women, Diana’s butler Paul revealed the moment that she knew her tenuous happiness with Prince Charles was over.
Speaking as part of the documentary, he admitted: “She told me on the night that Prince Harry was born, she cried herself to sleep. The Prince told the Princess that his duty was now done.
“He’d provided the country with an heir and a spare, and he could now resume his relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles,” the butler said.
During the difficult period, Diana decided to reconcile the relationship with her stepmother Raine Spencer – partly because the one she had with her own mother wasn’t in a good place, and partly because she had begun to relate to the countess.
But when she began her relationship with Dodi Fayed following her divorce to Charles, her biological mother Frances Shand Kydd was outraged.
Paul also revealed that he’d heard a conversation between the pair where Frances had called her daughter a “prostitute”.
He went on to say: “She was saying to her ‘You’re a prostitute you’re a prostitute, and Diana said ‘If you say that again I’m going to put the phone down and never speak to you again’.
“And that’s what she did,” he added.
The documentary also saw Raine’s personal assistant Sue Howe reveal that Diana had once pushed her stepmother down the stairs after a huge argument.
