Princess Diana previously talked about the pressures of giving birth to her eldest child, Prince William.

In Andrew Morton’s book “Diana: Her True Story,” the Princess of Wales said that she felt an enormous amount of pressure from the media surrounding the birth of Prince William. In fact, the pressure was so unbearable that she had to be induced. Princess Diana also had to pick a date that didn’t interfere with Prince Charles’ polo schedule.

“When we had William, we had to find a date in the diary that suited Charles and his polo. William had to be induced because I couldn’t handle the press pressure any longer, it was becoming unbearable… It was as if everyone was monitoring every day for me,” she said.

Princess Diana also said that she felt grateful to have found a date when Prince William could be born and that did not interfere with her ex-husband’s busy schedule. Prince William’s birth was welcomed with great excitement by both Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

However, the same cannot be said about the birth of the former couple’s second child, Prince Harry. According to the late princess, Prince Charles had been very vocal about wanting a daughter.

“I knew Harry was going to be a boy because I saw on the scan. Charles always wanted a girl… He wanted two children, and he wanted a girl… I knew Harry was a boy, and I didn’t tell him,” Princess Diana said.

After Princess Diana gave birth to Prince Harry, Prince Charles could not keep his disappointment to himself for having yet another baby boy. He also commented about Prince Harry’s red hair.

While at Prince Harry’s christening months later, Princess Diana said that Prince Charles once again expressed his disappointment about not having a baby girl. Prince Charles told Princess Diana’s mom that he thought he would have a daughter.

Princess Diana’s mom snapped Prince Charles’ head off and said that he should be grateful to have two kids who are normal even if they are both boys.
