Diana, William, and Harry The Heartbreaking Story of a Princess and Mother by James Patterson, Chris Mooney Read Book Online And Download

Overview: From the moments William and Harry are born into the House of Windsor, they become their young mother's whole world.


I've got two very healthy, strong boys. I realize how incredibly lucky I am, Diana reminds herself every morning. But even the Princess of Wales questions, Am I a good mother?


Diana's faced with a seemingly impossible challenge: one son destined to be King of England and another determined to find his own way. She teaches them to honor royal tradition, even while daring to break it.


'Sometimes I'd like a time machine...' Diana says as William and Harry grow up, never imagining they'd have less than a lifetime together. Even after she's gone, her sons follow their mother's lead - and her heart. As the years pass and William and Harry grow into adulthood and form families of their own, they carry on Diana's name, her likeness, and her incomparable spirit.

April 20, 1978

 London

Lady Diana Spencer takes a deep breath.

She clutches her bouquet of roses and ducks her head, aware that all eyes are on her. She straightens her spine, then steps lightly, the way her ballet teachers have taught her.

Diana spots the beaming faces of wedding attendees, including the Duchess of Kent, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester—and the Queen Mother, standing beside Diana’s own maternal grandmother, Lady Ruth Fermoy.

Slowly, she begins her walk down the aisle, moving through the nave toward the chancel as she glides to her place at the altar.

Inside Guards’ Chapel, a few hundred yards from Buckingham Palace, attention shifts from her to the bride: her sister Jane, lovely in her form-fitting high-necked long-sleeved embroidered lace gown and veil.

The real eye-catcher of Jane’s bridal ensemble is an heirloom: the Spencer Tiara, which has been in the family for more than a century. A wedding present from a Spencer cousin to Lady Cynthia Hamilton, their paternal grandmother, the tiara is an ornate diamond headpiece embellished with a flower-shaped centerpiece. Diana dreams of wearing it on her future wedding day.

On this bright Thursday afternoon, though, sixteen-year-old Diana is in a floor-length ruffled pinafore-style pink gingham dress with cream-colored puffed sleeves. Even though she’s chief bridesmaid, her gown is identical to those worn by the little flower girls. At least she’s wearing pearls and has her shoulder-length fair hair fashionably clipped up on one side.

From her spot at the front of the church, Diana casts an eye over the congregation. Jane is marrying Robert Fellowes, the queen’s assistant private secretary. Both the bride’s and groom’s sides are closely tied to the royal family. Queen Elizabeth is even godmother to Diana’s thirteen-year-old brother, Charles. And while Robert possesses a courtier’s prestige, it’s the Spencer earldom that commands an uncommon fortune of $140 million, including the magnificent Althorp estate.

The newlyweds will be moving into the Old Barracks, a cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

Oh, I would love to live at KP, Diana thinks, glancing again over pews filled with the elegantly dressed members of the royal inner circle.

She spots James Whitaker of the Daily Mirror. He’s been reporting on a romance between the eldest Spencer sister, Sarah, and Prince Charles.

All the talk of “a potential match” has really gone to her twenty-three-year-old sister’s head. Diana’s seen the way Sarah revels in the attention, pasting into a scrapbook all the articles and photos about herself and His Royal Highness.

Just before today’s ceremony began, Diana had bounced up to the reporter.

“You’re the wicked Mr. Whitaker, aren’t you?” she asked.

“Who are you, and how do you know me?” he volleyed back.

“I am Diana, the little sister, and I know all about you from Sarah,” she said with a laugh. She stops short of telling the reporter what she’s told friends, which is that she actually feels “desperately sorry” for Prince Charles having Sarah “wrapped around his neck because she’s quite a tough old thing.”

Diana may be the youngest Spencer daughter, but she is the most romantic. She remembers Jane confiding about her new husband: We have known each other all our lives and have gradually grown closer.

Diana breathes a quiet sigh, already looking forward to the reception, where she can’t wait to tuck into all the good food and sweets.



April 20, 1978

 London

Inside St. James’s Palace, the Queen Mother stands with Ruth Roche, Lady Fermoy, her confidante and lady-in-waiting.

The Queen Mother is rather taken with Lady Fermoy’s teenage granddaughter. Though still a little pudgy, the youngest Spencer girl is quite tall, with flashing eyes and a captivating smile.

Diana has told the family that she only wants “to be with people and have fun and look after people.”

Today, she shows it, moving easily among the party crowd, charming her elders and enthralling the children.

Diana was only a child herself when her mother, Ruth’s daughter Frances, caused a public scandal by leaving her husband, the soon-to-be eighth Earl Spencer, for married wallpaper heir Peter Shand Kydd. Even after Frances and Peter divorced their spouses and married each other, young Diana had clung desperately to the hope that her mother would one day return home.

The Queen Mother is less impressed with Johnnie Spencer’s second wife, Raine Legge, Countess of Dartmouth. Is it true that the earl’s children call the woman Acid Raine?

Gazing across the hall now, the Queen Mother feels compelled to compliment the father of the bride, Lord Spencer, on young Lady Diana’s warmth and grace.

The earl gratefully acknowledges her kindness.

“But now you have the most difficult part,” she advises him. “You must think about her future settlement in life.”

The family has been thinking about Diana’s future. They see a fine match for her with the Queen Mother’s second grandson—in fact they’re so sure of it that Diana’s close friends and family already call her “Duch,” for Duchess.

Won’t it be perfect if Sarah Spencer marries Prince Charles and Diana marries his younger brother Andrew?




November 15, 1978

 London

Prince Charles stands in front of his mirror, buttoning his dress shirt.

It’s the day after his thirtieth birthday. Tonight, his parents are hosting a private family dinner, followed by a party for 350 guests at Buckingham Palace, “the big house.”

Charles relishes his reputation as “The Playboy Prince” as well as his moniker of “Action Man.” His military service and his pursuit of daredevil stunts, surfing, and polo prove his boasts that “I believe in living life dangerously.” And if his love of pranks and jokes has also gotten him called “The Clown Prince,” well, at least it’s proof that he’s not dull company.

He’s been dubbed “the most popular man in Britain.” And there’s no question that he’s the most eligible bachelor in the empire these days.

When Charles was twenty-one and visiting the White House, President Nixon’s daughter called him an “excellent dancer.” That’s when Charles realized, as he later said, “They were trying to marry me off to Tricia Nixon.” The American matchmaking didn’t take.

“A man should sow his wild oats before settling down,” Charles’s “Uncle Dickie,” Lord Mountbatten, once counseled, though he advised discretion in any such affairs. “But for a wife, he should choose a suitable and sweet-charactered girl before she meets anyone else she might fall for.”

Charles agrees. He’s of the opinion that marriage is “a much more important business than just falling in love.” It’s about “creating a secure family unit” to give children a happy upbringing. “That is what marriage is all about, creating a home.”

“I personally feel,” he said at age twenty-five, “that a good age for a man to get married is around thirty.”

Now that he is thirty, his father insists, “You’d better get on with it, Charles, or there won’t be anyone left.” It’s an unavoidable fact that three hundred years have passed since a Prince of Wales—Charles II, the Merry Monarch—remained unmarried at the age of thirty.

But the current Charles, Prince of Wales, really does enjoy the falling-in-love part.

He tugs on his cuffs, straightens, picks up his 50/50 martini. I’ve fallen in love with all sorts of girls, and I fully intend to go on doing so.
