It seems very strange to me that they didn't talk about her by making at least one film or documentary on TV. They only talked about her on the news and this saddened me a lot because she was a smart woman who went against the royal system and the queen, courageously saying certain uncomfortable truths and it is worthwhile to always make an adequate commemoration and not that pass all in absolute silence.
Diana was what all women are: weak and strong, temperamental and protective, happy and sad, all at the same time. But while ordinary women like us aren't allowed this, for her it was the hallmark. And in a way it allowed all those who became women after her death to be seen as free women to be as they are.
I was very struck by a video biography of Kitty Kelley in which we speak of Lady Diana as a very complex woman, with sudden mood swings, with fits of anger, frequent crying fits and a particular propensity to self-harm (apparently she has attempted suicide several times).

Can all of this be generated by an unhappy marriage?

It doesn't look exactly like that. The roots of Lady Diana's malaise can also be found in the family of origin.

Diana Spencer is noble by birth, fourth of five children (she had two sisters and two brothers), her family crumbled when she was only 7 years old. The cause of the separation of the parents seems to have been the death of her little brother just ten hours after his birth. A pain that the parents could not overcome given how much they wanted a son for the continuation of the family name. After the birth of her little brother who died, however, the third daughter arrived, Diana, to whom they gave her name a week after her birth.

Her childhood was turbulent, characterized by few acts of love on the part of her parents, and it seems that this is precisely the reason for her emotional dependence.

A trait in common with his wife Charles who did not see his mother for months. While she traveled the world on official visits, Charles was in the care of nurses but above all he spent time with his maternal grandmother, Queen Mother Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon all to utter his name in his presence? Little curiosity!). Charles was seen as the future king and therefore had to be educated from an early age, which also happened to his mother when his uncle Edward VIII abdicated for the sake of Wallis Simpson, a divorced American actress (at the time a king could not marry a divorced woman as Prince Harry has done in recent times).

As we know, Diana was very active on a humanitarian level and used her popularity to shed light on countless social issues: from HIV / AIDS, to land mines, from leprosy, to the homeless.

He also deliberately used his wardrobe to convey "approach and warmth" both when he came into contact with ordinary people, when it was a charity mission, and when he met official delegations.

Every time he returns to Africa, Harry, Diana's son, feels like he feels "at home", still wrapped in his mother's arms. As he himself told, it is in this continent that he took refuge after Diana's death and, over the years, returned mainly to Mozambique, precisely to collaborate with The Halo Trust, a charity involved in the removal of anti-personnel mines, which he was very dear to the late Princess. It was following in his footsteps that Harry visited the reclaimed minefield on that occasion, meeting both mine victims and deminers. Diana, eight months before her tragic death, visited a mine clearance camp in Angola (which Harry went to see personally in 2013).
