Lady Pamela Hicks: Princess Diana Was 'Really Spiteful, Really Unkind'

Lady Pamela Hicks, Prince Philip's first cousin and a member of Queen Elizabeth II's 1947 bridal party, doesn't mince words about Princess Diana in an interview with Vanity Fair.

"She had enormous charisma, she was beautiful, she was very good at empathy with the general crowd... and she had no feeling at all for her husband or his family," Pamela slams Diana. "Quite the reverse!"

"She made everybody believe she'd been thrown to the wolves," she says of Diana. Such nonsense! She was given the Queen's favorite lady-in-waiting, Sue Hussey, to help her, to teach her."

"But she didn't want to be told anything. 'That's boring, Sue,' she'd say. Instead, she wanted to listen to her music and go disco-ing or to some jive concert."

"She didn't try," the 84-year-old concludes. "She had no need to try because she saw the people admired her, then they admired her more. She reckoned she was the star."

"She was really spiteful, really unkind to Charles -- and, my God, he's a man who needs support and encouragement."

"It absolutely destroyed him. He looked grey and ghost-like. Now of course he's blossomed again."

Diana and Charles officially divorced in 1996 after fifteen unhappy years together. She died at age 36 in a car crash in 1997.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles married longtime mistress, Camilla Parker Bowles, in 2005.
