After getting married to Prince Charles, Diana’s life was completely turned around. One of the most painful realities of her marriage was that her in-laws, the royal family had been clinging on to negative perceptions about her from the start.
The Princess of Wales opened up during an interview, claiming that the royal family had seen her as ‘mentally imbalanced and unstable.’
During her 1995 interview with Martin Bashir, the late mother of two detailed what her life had been like in the royal family. After suffering from postpartum depression at the time, the family started to negatively liable her.
“What effect did the depression have on your marriage?” asked Bashir.
“Well it gave everybody a wonderful new label. It’s ‘Diana’s unstable’ and ‘Diana’s mentally imbalanced,’ and unfortunately that seems to have stuck on and off through the years,” she responded.
