Toward the end of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage, the mother of two began revealing private details about her relationship with the heir to the throne.

According to an unearthed biography, Diana’s statements about her first meeting with Prince Charles weren’t true.

In the 2007 biography, “Charles: The Man Who Will Be King,” Howard Hodgson claimed Diana wasn’t honest about how she felt about the Prince. The author reflected on Princess Diana’s recollection of the meeting.

“I remember meeting him and feeling desperately sorry for him.. that my sister was wrapped around his neck… ‘cause she’s quite, um, a tough old thing – if she had blinkers on she’d get what she wanted,” Diana recalled.

“I couldn’t care two hoots who Charles was. I thought, poor old thing. But I wasn’t impressed with anything around him.”

Despite her claims, Hodgson insisted Princess Diana told a royal lie. “Like so many of Diana’s recollections, this simply was not true.

“As the dormitory walls of her year at West Heath [school] saw horses replaced by posters, Lady Diana’s pin-up wasn’t a singer or an actor but Charles, Prince of Wales,” he explained.

Hodgson claimed Diana saw Prince Charles as a “hero” and skipped school to meet him. “In the Autumn, Charles accepted an invitation to stay at Althorp [the Spencer estate] for a shooting weekend,” the royal author revealed.

“It was November, and the 16-year-old Diana was now resitting all her previously failed exams. However, revising would have to wait – she wasn’t going to pass up on this chance, and she made sure she was back home for the weekend.”

Meanwhile, Hodgson claimed Charles was honest about his first encounter with Diana. “He later commented that she was ‘jolly’ and ‘bound’ and was impressed by how easily he had chatted away to him,” he wrote.

“She was still, understandably, a noisy and slightly plump teenager who lacked the level of maturity a 29-year-old would have been looking for.”

Although sparks appeared to fly during Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s initial meeting, it didn’t last. Years after their 1981 wedding, Charles and Diana finalized their divorce in 1996.
