Princess Diana was raging during her worst Balmoral experience with Prince Charles.

The Queen always spends her summer holidays in her favorite home, Balmoral Castle, in Scotland. She is often joined by the other members of the royal family, including Princess Diana when she was still alive. However, the People’s Princess wasn’t as fond of the place as the monarch.

According to Penny Junor in her 2017 book “The Duchess: The Untold Story,” Princess Diana hated the countryside and the royals’ passion for horses and dogs. She also didn’t like the rain and was disheartened that her husband was avoiding intimate contact with her. So, she was furious during one of her worst stays in the Queen’s favorite home.

“She was raging and getting no meaningful reassurance from Charles,” Junor wrote.

Prince Charles didn’t do anything in response to Princess Diana’s unhappiness. Instead, he withdrew into his solitary countryside pursuits and “left dealing with Diana to others.” 

The future king tasked his secretary Michael Colborne to look after his wife while he went out on the state. What followed was the most “shocking, distressing and draining days” for Corborne.

“For six solid hours, with no distraction beyond a plate of sandwiches at lunchtime, he sat there while Diana cried, paced around the room, kicked the furniture, ranted about everyone and everything to do with the place she hated so much, and then fell into brooding silence before starting all over again,” Junor added.

“Charles was mystified and despondent. He didn’t know what had gone wrong or how he was going to cope.”

According to Katie Nicholl in her 2010 book “William and Harry,” there was also a time when the Princess of Wales disappointed Queen Elizabeth II during their vacation in Scotland. Princess Diana was reportedly suffocated in Balmoral and wanted to stay somewhere with Prince William and Prince Harry and this saddened the monarch.

Her Majesty reportedly “obliged” because she knew that “it was best not to antagonize her daughter-in-law.” She even offered the use of the lodge where she resides when Balmoral is open to the public. However, according to the Queen’s cousin, Lady Elizabeth Anson, she was “so upset” when Princess Diana moved to the lodge with her two sons.
