According to a royal biographer, a controversial interview Princess Diana did with the BBC in 1995 left Queen Elizabeth II feeling hopeless and Prince Philip furious.

Prince William and Prince Harry were among a group who blasted the BBC for the underhanded methods used to obtain the coveted sit-down. But regardless of how they convinced Diana to open up, what she revealed caught the queen’s attention, instigating an official decision about how her marriage to Charles should move forward.

Princess Diana and the controversial BBC interview

Diana was forthcoming in her interview with the BBC, confessing to feeling “sadness” that her marriage wasn’t working (PBS). According to her, that was partly because of the pressure on them as a royal couple and partly because of her husband’s affair, which was an open secret.

Princess Diana’s Last Words After Her Car Crash Were Heartbreaking

  Princess Diana’s Last Words After Her Car Crash Were Heartbreaking The moment won't be shown on 'The Crown.'Diana was also one of the first royals to speak candidly about her own mental health struggles and eating disorder on an international stage, and quickly became known as the "People's Princess." Her tragic early death, however, has sparked continued interest for more than two decades, from countless documentaries, to books, media coverage, and even a new opera.

Diana disclosed years of suicide attempts and eating disorders due to the stress of being a royal in a loveless marriage. Former journalist Martin Bashir asked her why she consented to speak when she did, and she told him she felt misrepresented as the wife of the future King Charles.

“… We will have been separated three years this December, and the perception that has been given of me for the last three years has been very confusing, turbulent, and in some areas, I’m sure many, many people doubt me,” she explained.

But she also wanted to address the people she said mattered to her. “I want to reassure all those people who have loved me and supported me throughout the last 15 years that I’d never let them down,” she explained. “That is a priority to me, along with my children.”

Royal biographer claims the BBC interview Princess Diana gave was ‘shocking’ to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip

Royal biographer Andrew Morton revealed in his book, The Queen: Her Life, that Diana’s November 1995 interview with Bashir and the BBC was “shocking” and “unforgivable” to the royal family. “[The queen] was despairing, her husband apoplectic,” he wrote (People). “Something had to be done, for the sake of not just the monarchy but also their grandchildren.”

Morton claimed that although Elizabeth had “held out the olive branch for so long,” she became “determined to cut the marital Gordian knot.”
