Royal Family News: Princess Diana Felt Shattered

If that weren’t enough, royal author Christopher Andersen says that the then-Prince Charles made a comment that shattered Princess Diana’s world soon after Harry was born.

That’s because the first thing he said was “Oh, God,” when he found out that his newborn son had red hair.

Andersen recalled that Prince Charles had said, “;’It’s a boy. And he even has red hair!’ At that moment, said Diana, ‘It just went bang, our marriage. The whole thing went down the drain. Something inside me closed off.’”

Andersen also explained, “After having two daughters, Diana’s parents were so convinced she would be a boy that they didn’t even bother picking out a girl’s name in advance. It was a full week before they named her Diana Frances. She grew up knowing that her parents were bitterly disappointed in her, all of which made Diana feel ‘unwanted and unloved’ from the beginning.”
