A letter has recently emerged written by Her Majesty The Queen shortly after Diana, Princess of Wales was killed in a Paris car crash. Her Majesty faced harsh criticism in the aftermath of Diana’s death as she remained in Scotland with Princes William and Harry as she believed it to be in their interest. This attitude did not go down well with the country.
The letter was written to Lady Henriette Abel Smith, a close aide.
It was indeed dreadfully sad, and she is a huge loss to the country. But the public reaction to her death, and the service in the Abbey, seem to have united people round the world in a rather inspiring way. William and Harry have been so brave and I am very proud of them. I think your letter was one of the first I opened — emotions are still so mixed up but we have all been through a very bad experience!
