In fact, although her image as the perfect princess remained intact, behind the scenes Diana was suffering terribly. She cut herself with razor blades to maintain a feeling of control and, at one point, even threw herself down the stairs while pregnant with her first child William. These dark details, however, were kept secret from the public at the time.

Fortunately, though, Diana’s desperate unhappiness was alleviated somewhat by her children, William and Harry. She was determined to be a more attentive mother to her sons than was normal in the royal family and organized her royal duties around their schedules instead of the other way around. She even took them to school herself as often as she could, instead of having a nanny do it.

In fact, Diana’s defiance of royal tradition made the public love her more. She was seen as apparently fighting against a stuffy and out-of-touch institution. And her beauty, her eloquence, her support of charitable causes and her array of famous friends didn’t hurt her popularity, either. In the eyes of many ordinary people, then, Diana was by far the best of the royals.
