Diana and Princess Anne Were Rivals – True
Even though Charles and Diana might be the focus of this season, Erin Doherty’s portrayal of Princess Anne is its true star. At one point, during a conversation with the Queen, Anne vents about her sister-in-law. “Lovely her, dumpy me,” she complains. “Smiling her, grumpy me. Charming her, awful me.” It seems that Anne was resentful of the fact that Diana got all the attention while she toiled away doing actual work.
As one expert said, Anne “had no time” for Diana and didn’t appreciate how she used the media to promote herself, suggesting that this account is highly factual.
