Secret Princess Diana tapes revealed: Unheard audio of her trashing ‘ridiculous’ King Charles marriage


Twenty-six years after Princess Diana’s untimely death, never-before-heard audio of her describing her “ridiculous” marriage to the now-King Charles has been released.

Tapes that were recorded by author Andrew Morton for his bombshell 1992 book “Diana: Her True Story” have been released for the first time ever, which will be included in the upcoming documentary, “Diana: The Rest of Her Story.”

In a clip unveiled on “Good Morning America” on Friday, the People’s Princess described her crazy marriage to Charles, 74.

“It was so grown up. Here’s Diana, a kindergarten teacher. I mean the whole thing was ridiculous,” she said.

Another unheard tape revealed how the former Prince of Wales was “disappointed” when he found out their youngest son, Prince Harry, was not a girl.

Diana — who died in 1997 at the age of 36 — claimed on the record that Charles had expressed his sadness to her stepmother, Raine Spencer, at Harry’s christening back in 1984.

“My husband won’t even talk to Mummy, barely,” she said. “Because of Harry’s christening, Charles went up to Mummy and said, ‘You know, we were so disappointed, we thought it would be a girl.’”

“And Mummy snapped his head off,” she continued, “and said, ‘You should realize how lucky you are to have a child that’s normal.’”

“Ever since that day, the shutters have come down,” she added. “That’s what he does when he gets somebody answering back at him.”

Tom Jennings produced the forthcoming documentary special and told “GMA” that “it is important as part of Diana’s legacy to allow more of those tapes to be heard.”

The forthcoming film will also detail Diana’s relationship with Raine Spencer, as heard in Diana audio clips released Friday.

“I was so angry,” she said. “I said, ‘I hate you so much. If you only knew how much we all hated you for what you’ve done. You ruined the house. You spent daddy’s money. I have said everything I possibly could. Raine said you have no idea how much pain your mother put your father through.’”

“I said, ‘Pain Raine? It’s one word you don’t even know how to relate to,” she added. “‘In my job I see people suffer like you never see. You call that pain? I said you’ve got a lot to learn.’ I remember really going for her gullet.”

The new film is a follow-up to the 2017 doc “Diana: In Her Own Words,” in which previously unseen footage was shared and provided insight into the short life of Diana.

Charles and Diana had officially divorced in 1996 after tying the knot in 1981. Allegations of cheating from both parties were one of the main causes of their split.

Diana was struggling with her bulimia after learning that Charles was unfaithful to her with his mistress Camilla Parker Bowles (now Queen Camilla), the doc explained.

Her close friend Dr. James Colthurst, who gave the tapes to Morton, alleged that she went on a downward spiral after finding out the news.

“You could see her fading physically,” Colthurst said. “It was clear to all those who knew her that the bulimia was a reaction to the circumstances she found herself in.”

The princess’ ballet teacher Anne Allan was also interviewed for the production and said: “She loved Charles, yes, but Charles loved another woman.”

“It’s very hard for anyone when you love someone and you realize that perhaps they don’t love you. I think it made her very sad, devastated,” Allan added. “She felt that she wasn’t enough.”
