He can’t leave without losing his family.  I agree, he’s stuck and probably miserable.

She could easily have settled down to a quiet life and NOT gone out of her way to be in the limelight. She actively encouraged the press, but didn't realise or care that you can't turn them on and off like a tap when it suits. She was the agent of her own downfall. Not that she deserved the awful death she had, but when people blame the paparazzi they ignore the fact that she encouraged them - and didn't bother wearing a seat belt in a speeding car..

Well, he's got himself a cushy new sinecure, just announced today. Poster boy for some mental health outfit. He'll be fine

That was almost 30 years ago. People weren’t as aware of excesses of the media as they are now.

There are ads for that app now. It looks like a scam.

The media was not as all pervasive as now, because there was no social media. But the media that existed was very powerful, and Diana knew how to play them. I remember the furore over Diana's interview with Martin Bashir - the Megan/Harry interview was nothing compared to the impact it made; the close up head and shoulders, the "vulnerable" look, the comment about their being three in the marriage. She was an expert in washing dirty linen in public.

She engineered photo ops to portray her as vulnerable, like the Taj Mahal photo. And took the kids to theme parks and doing photo shoots at charities to promote herself as the loving mother - the conclusion was supposed to be that Charles was a bad father. The fact that the kids had been packed off to boarding school at the age of eight and she only saw them in the school holidays was conveniently kept very quiet

She was well aware of the media - she just thought she could use them when it suited and have a private life when it suited. That's not how it works.

In other words, he'll be the poster boy for the company and get the kudos, while others do the work. He has no qualifications other than a few mediocre A Levels and ten years in the army. If his granny wasn't queen of England he's have been lucky to get a job as a security guard... :-)

I admired her for trying to make the best of a bad situation. Her married life and after was very unhappy.

Didn’t he attend college?

Trying to make the best of a bad situation? She was vindictively trying to portray herself in a good light and her ex in a bad light. She could have, for her sons' sake if nothing else, gone quietly into the background and lived a low key life. She clearly never thought of the effect on her boys of having their mothers love life and marital problems plastered all over the media BY HER.
