Princess Diana’s mom, Frances Shand Kydd, was forced to give her up and her other children for a tragic reason.

In the Netflix series “The Royal House of Windsor,” narrator Gwilym Lee said that the late Princess of Wales’ issues like her neediness stemmed from her difficult childhood.

“A witness to her parents’ acrimonious divorce, she and her siblings were the subjects of a bitter custody battle. As a result, Diana’s mother had to give up her children. Diana later admitted she had been haunted by the crunch of the gravel as her mother departed,” Lee said (via Express).

Penny Junor, a royal biographer, also dubbed the mom of two as damaged.

“She was damaged, mentally, by her experiences. And then moving into the royal family was the worst possible scenario that she could have found for herself,” Junor said.

Prior to her wedding in 1981, Princess Diana and Prince Charles became the world’s most sought-after couple. The pair was mobbed everywhere they went. However, Princess Diana didn’t necessarily like all the attention. She suffered from tantrums, terrible mood swings, and she also went into rages.

“Charles didn’t know what the hell had happened and he thought that in some way, it must be his fault,” Junor said.

Sally Bedell Smith, a royal expert, said, “One of the saddest parts of Diana’s short and turbulent life was the failure of those around her – friends and family alike – to convince her to obtain treatment for her extreme symptoms of mental instability.”

Princess Diana and Prince Charles finalized their divorce in 1996. A year earlier, Princess Diana told Panorama that she was aware of Prince Charles affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.

“Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded. I think everybody was very anxious because they could see there were complications but didn’t want to interfere, but were there, made it known that they were there if required,” she said.
