Sally told the Mirror: "One of the sweetest things he said to me was, ‘What colour hair will my future wife have? Will she have blonde hair?’ "I said he would marry someone with dark hair.” Sally says the royal also asked about his "bruv" Prince William during the phone call and if he was going to be "OK". She responded: "Of course he is. He will be good and he will be king, but he is in a different bubble to you.” Harry reportedly...
    Often when an actor is given the opportunity to talk about their latest role, they are gushing, sentimental and over-emotional. But in the case of Kristen Stewart, who took on the challenging task of playing Diana, Princess of Wales, in the film Spencer — which opened amid great fanfare on Friday — something unusual happened. The actress and star of Twilight, the teen vampire franchise, spoke not of herself but of the character she had portrayed. In a moment of personal modesty, she demonstrated a rare insight — possibly gained from her own experience of fame — into Diana’s troubled role as the most famous (and most photographed) woman on the planet. ‘It’s feeling constantly watched, no matter what you do,’ she says. ‘If you’re in public, someone in the room is looking at you at all times. 'Even if they’re not, it’s at the back of your mind. That is a feeling you only have if you’re extremely famous. It’s a completely different approach from being a human.’ Just like The Crown, with its insistence that it made scrupulous...
    Critics have described Princess Diana film Spencer as a 'horror movie' that paints the royal family as 'sadistic monsters'. The film, which was released this weekend, is set over three-days at Sandringham in Christmas of 1991, shows the late royal's relationship with her beloved sons, the way she navigated the press and a constant battle with her in-laws. Lead Kristen Stewart has been tipped for Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Diana, but some critics have slammed the film for painting Diana's stay at Sandringham as 'a right royal Christmas from hell'.    Lead Kristen Stewart has been tipped for Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Diana, but some critics have slammed the film for painting Diana's stay at Sandringham as 'a right royal Christmas from hell'.

    (CNN)Kristen Stewart's fierce, attention-grabbing work as Princess Diana really ought to be viewed independently of "Spencer," described as "a fable from a true tragedy" that presents a pivotal weekend in Princess Diana's split from the Royal Family. That is, it's possible to admire the performance and still come away feeling director Pablo Larrain's fictionalized movie doesn't significantly add to a story many of us already know in exhaustive detail.Larrain, notably, offered a similar take on American royalty with "Jackie," which starred Natalie Portman as Jackie Kennedy. In what is becoming his anthology of famous women facing crises, he has created another strong showcase for the star while crafting a movie that's a little too precious for its own good."Spencer" (Diana's surname, for any who have forgotten) takes off in speculative ways based on a real moment, when Diana spent Christmas weekend with the Royals at the Queen's Sandringham Estate as her marriage to Prince Charles (Jack Farthing) was crumbling. Arriving late, she's alternately depressed and defiant, well aware that all eyes are on her even before being warned that the...

    The movie announces itself cryptically as 'a fable from a true tragedy'. On a clear winter's day in 1991, Princess Diana – all coltish limbs, thick blonde hair and those unforgettable huge blue eyes – is driving her little convertible sports car through the Norfolk countryside to the Royal Family's Christmas gathering at Sandringham. Unfortunately, and not a little symbolically, she has got herself lost along the way. After fruitlessly consulting a map, she stops at a garage to ask the distinctly non-royal people there for help.  'Excuse me,' she says. 'I'm looking for somewhere. I have absolutely no idea where I am.' And in that direct plea for human connection, says Kristen Stewart, whose portrayal of the late, much-loved princess in Pablo Larraín's forthcoming film Spencer is already generating an Oscar buzz, you have in a nutshell the power of Diana's appeal.  Kristen Stewart, 31, (pictured) stars as Princess Diana in Pablo Larraín's imagined account of a three-day Christmas holiday at Sandringham in new film Spencer  Kristen said she became 'obsessed' with watching The Crown to immerse herself into...

    London (CNN)When Meghan, Duchess of Sussex opened up about her miscarriage last year, she was widely praised for the bravery she showed. Now, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex and the Queen's daughter-in-law, is speaking about another deeply personal issue riddled with stigma.Fifty-six-year-old Sophie first drew attention to the subject of menopause back in May, when she described the transition as feeling like someone had taken her brain out.

    The rising British stage star who plays the title role in Diana: The Musical has told how the hardest part of embodying the late royal was trying not to 'get lost in that sadness.'  Jeanna de Waal, 30, who previously said it is a 'huge privilege' to portray the princess in the musical retelling of her life, which can be streamed on Netflix, also said she thinks Prince Harry and Prince William's mother would've 'definitely' enjoyed the show. Speaking to Elle magazine about the most challenging thing about embodying Princess Diana, Jeanna said: 'I would say it was giving my character a burning intention that's interesting for an audience to watch, even when she's going through the phase, for lack of a better word, of a victim.  'To not really get lost in that sadness. That was a collaboration with the writers, too: How long do we leave her in this place where everything is beating down on her? Her quiet power, how does it ferment? When does it start to show itself?' Jeanna De Waal attends the Christian Dior Designer of...

    Elizabeth Emanuel, a 29-year-old up-and-coming fashion designer, was in her Mayfair studio one morning talking to a client when the telephone rang. Nobody was rushing to pick it up and it trilled for what seemed like an age. Apologising to her client, Elizabeth went off and took the call herself. A well-spoken young woman was on the line asking if she could book an appointment for that afternoon. Elizabeth took her details, absently writing down the name ‘Debra’ by mistake. It was an error that became apparent when, at the agreed time of 2.30pm, the woman was buzzed through the front door, climbed the stairs and stepped into the tiny first-floor showroom, smiling bashfully from under her fringe. It was Lady Diana Spencer, the 19-year-old tipped to be the next Queen of England. MAGICAL MOMENT: Diana gives the world the first glimpse of her dress as she arrives at St Paul’s Cathedral for her wedding in July 1981  ‘I couldn’t believe it,’ recalls Elizabeth today. ‘Diana, wearing the full skirt, cardigan, pearls – that Sloane Ranger look – standing...
    An Australian fitness coach who trained Princess Diana in the last months of her life remembers the world's most famous woman as a devoted mother who spent '85 percent of her time' talking about her sons. Cameron Falloon was 24 years old when he worked as one of Diana's personal trainers between December 1996 and July 1997, just weeks before her untimely death aged 36 following a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris on August 31.  Addressing the sensational rift between Diana's sons, Princes William and Harry, Mr Falloon - who now owns Body Fit Training gym in Chatswood, Melbourne - believes things would be very different if she was alive. 'I think to be honest, if she was still here, it wouldn't be happening. She was all about family,' he told Daily Mail Australia.

    In glorious July sunshine, the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, 40 years ago this month, provided Britain with a rare blast of celebration during a difficult summer. Nearly ten per cent of the British workforce was unemployed, interest rates were over 14 per cent, and both were rising. There had been four months of sporadic rioting across England, in places such as Brixton, South London, Handsworth in Birmingham, and Liverpool’s Toxteth. The Government was locked in a battle with Irish Republican hunger strikers – six of whom, including Bobby Sands, had died. On July 29, 1981, more than 600,000 people lined the streets of London. The wedding reached a global TV audience of 750 million viewers in 74 countries, including 28.4 million in Britain.

    For Lord Stevens, the stakes could not have been higher.  'The interview was unique. Of course it was a unique situation,' he recalls to the Mail. 'But we approached it as we would any other witness.' Up to a point. Although it was reported at the time that Stevens met Charles the circumstances and detail of the interrogation have never been revealed — until now. It began with a letter from Stevens to Charles via the Prince's private secretary, Sir Michael Peat.  To prevent leaks and unwanted publicity and speculation it was agreed, on the Palace side, that only Charles and Sir Michael should know the meeting was to take place. No one in the Paget team would have knowledge of the event except for Lord Stevens and his senior investigator, DCS Dave Douglas. Here was an interesting clash of outlooks. Douglas was a 48-year-old, working-class Geordie who, while a dutiful officer, had no time for the monarchy; any monarchy. In fact, while he greatly admired the Queen as a person, he was a republican at heart. The Mail understands...

    Martin Bashir says he is "deeply sorry" following a bombshell report that he used "deceitful behavior" to secure a 1995 BBC interview with Princess Diana. However, he denies that the interview was responsible for any harm towards the late royal. "I never wanted to harm Diana in any way and I don’t believe we did," the journalist told the Sunday Times. "Everything we did in terms of the interview was as she wanted, from when she wanted to alert the palace, to when it was broadcast, to its contents ... My family and I loved her." QUEEN ELIZABETH II ‘UPSET’ BY PRINCE HARRY'S COMMENTS ABOUT THE ROYAL FAMILY IN RECENT INTERVIEWS: REPORT The report concluded that Bashir "commissioned fake bank statements" that allowed him to get access to Diana by deceiving her brother, Charles Spencer, to arrange a meeting in which Diana was later persuaded to take part in the 1995  interview.  "This behaviour was in serious breach of the 1993 edition of the BBC’s Producer Guidelines on straight dealing," former High Court Judge Lord Dyson said. Bashir has admitted...
    On November 14, 1995, I was on a Panorama assignment in Wales when I heard on my portable radio the news that Martin Bashir had secured a world-wide scoop. I had no mobile on me so I got off the train at the next station and phoned him from a call box to offer my sincere congratulations. Bashir’s magnificent coup, an interview with Princess Diana, led to nothing but high praise from all of us reporters and producers on the show. We bathed in the glory, we all grew ten feet tall. The adrenaline and the champagne flowed, for a short time at least. Today, it remains beyond belief that – according to all the evidence I have seen – the Diana scoop would eventually lead the BBC, the world’s greatest broadcaster and the gold standard for global truth, to mount a grubby cover-up. And then smear four of its own employees in a desperate attempt to protect the reputation of the senior managers responsible for this fiasco. On November 14, 1995, I was on a Panorama assignment in...

    NEW YORK -- For Harry, returning to London to attend Prince Philip's funeral last month meant once more facing a place where he felt trapped and hunted by cameras. It would be a test of his ability to cope with the anxiety that was bubbling up again."I was worried about it, I was afraid," Harry told The Associated Press during a recent joint interview with Oprah Winfrey to promote a mental-health series they co-created and co-executive produced for Apple TV+.He was able to work through any trepidation using coping skills learned in therapy."It definitely made it a lot easier, but the heart still pounds," said Harry, the Duke of Sussex and grandson of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and her late husband Philip.In "The Me You Can't See," which debuted Thursday night on Apple's streaming service, Harry reveals that he first saw a therapist approximately four years ago at the encouragement of then-girlfriend Meghan. They'd had an argument and she recognized his anger seemed misplaced.The series is another chapter in the unprecedented openness that Harry has brought to his life and...
    Princess Diana's former butler has thrown doubt on a letter she wrote saying she had 'no regrets' about her interview with Martin Bashir for Panorama in 1995.  Paul Burrell, 62, who lives in Cheshire with his family, said the letter, which was released as part of the Dyson Inquiry into the BBC, was 'odd,' in spite of being written in Diana's handwriting.  Speaking to Lorraine Kelly this morning, the royal aide turned commentator said the letter is the 'greatest asset' to Martin Bashir, after the revelation that he 'conned his way' into interviewing the late royal, two years before her death.  However, he revealed his theory that the letter could have been dicated to the late Princess because he knows that she did regret speaking publicly about her affair with James Hewitt.   Burrell's comment comes as both the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex condemned the actions of the BBC in airing Diana's interview, which was seen as a catalyst for her to officially divorce Prince Wales and leave her royal life behind.  'It is welcome that the BBC...

    Just as Meghan Markle plans to do, I had my second baby in Los Angeles. The Duchess hails from the city and is more used to the Tinseltown rules — but she’s never had a baby there, and it may come as a culture shock. She had first child, Archie, in the UK — as did I, a native Brit — so she’ll be finding LA an odd place to be pregnant. There’s the laid-back, hippy, organic lifestyle — but there’s ego, image and vast price tags, too. The Sussexes already know they’re having a girl — asking the baby’s gender is standard in LA. I found out I was expecting a girl the minute I could at 18 weeks, as did most of my Stateside friends. We argued it would help us feel prepared — and a lot goes into that when you get pregnant in LA. Sarah Ivens who is a native Brit, shares memories from giving birth to her second child in Los Angeles, as Meghan Markle prepares to also give birth in the city known...
    Prince Philip was upset by a ‘shockingly malicious’ episode of The Crown in which his father angrily blamed him for his sister’s death in a plane crash, according to two Royal biographers. The respected authors said Philip had been hurt by the manner in which the 1937 death of Princess Cecilie of Greece and Denmark had been depicted in the drama – and renewed calls for Netflix to apologise and add a disclaimer. Slurs during the first four series include the suggestions that the Prince was a serial philanderer who had an affair with a ballerina, was involved in the Profumo sex scandal and delivered a menacing threat to Princess Diana. Prince Philip was reportedly upset by the way that the death of his sister Princess Cecilie of Greece and Denmark was depicted in the Netflix drama, The Crown Producers of The Crown said on Friday they were ‘deeply saddened’ by his death, while actors Matt Smith and Tobias Menzies – who both played Philip over the four series – paid their own tributes.
