Princess Diana’s relationship with Prince Charles’ siblings will be examined in a new documentary.

Channel 5 is releasing a two-part show titled “Paxman on the Queen's Children” that delves into the lives of Queen Elizabeth II’s children: Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, as well as the quality of relationship they share with their spouses.

Details about the show have already been released. And what’s quite interesting is Tatler’s discovery that Princess Diana had a “fraught” relationship with the Prince of Wales’ sister, Princess Anne.

The Princess of Wales reportedly once said that she wouldn’t come to an event if Princess Anne would also be there. Veteran journalist Richard Kay spoke on the show and revealed that Princess Anne didn’t really like the late Princess of Wales.

“Princess Anne, she had no time for Diana she didn't like the way she went about her duty and the way she used the cameras and the media to promote herself in her eyes,” Kay explained.

In contrast, Princess Diana and Prince Andrew shared a warmer relationship. According to Kay, this might be because the People’s Princess and the Duke of York had known each other since childhood.

“Diana had a much warmer relationship with Prince Andrew who she had known well since she was a child. They had played together as children on the Sandringham Estate,” Kay added.

Princess Diana was also very close to Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. In fact, according to reports, the Duke and Duchess of York had known each other when they were young but only started dating after Princess Diana re-introduced Ferguson to Prince Andrew.

Princess Diana and Ferguson were like best friends. They attended polo games and went on several vacations together. However, the two had a falling-out. Princess Diana stopped talking to Ferguson when the latter claimed that she got a verruca after borrowing the princess’ shoe. Princess Diana was reportedly upset because Ferguson already promised that she would not talk about her in public.

Ferguson tried to fix her friendship with Princess Diana, but they never had the chance to talk prior to the fatal car crash that killed the Princess of Wales. However, it was found out that Princess Diana had spoken with a common friend a day before the accident to look for Ferguson because she wanted to talk to her.
