    Princess Diana 'Regretted Marrying into German Family'

    Diana, Princess of Wales regretted marrying into a “German family”, according to Anthony Julius, her divorce lawyer.

    Mr Julius said the Princess made the comment to express her empathy with him as a Jew. The claim is made in the lawyer's new book about anti-Semitism.

    He writes: “She was interested in Jews but had no idea about them, save that Jewish men (she had heard) were more likely than the men of her own class and background to treat women decently. She was happy to take Jews to be hostile to everything to which she herself was hostile. She once said to me that she should never have married into a German family.”

    Mr Julius first represented the princess when she sued over surreptitious photographs that had been taken of her exercising at a gym.

    In extracts from his new book published by The Sunday Times Mr Julius, who was not a divorce specialist but was persuaded by the Princess to represent her again, writes: “Diana lived as if in a vacuum. She was undereducated in the approved style of her class and gender.

    "She was very receptive to new experiences, which meant that she was sometimes taken by odd fancies. She had a strong desire to please, to leave her interlocutor happy, but often without quite understanding what that person was ‘about’.

    “She was intuitive, but not always accurate in her assessments of people. Sometimes she went wildly wrong — not just in the big things, but in odd misreadings of moods or sentiments.

    “I never had the feeling that she set out to impress; perhaps she had surrendered that ambition as a child.”

    He adds: “She was interested in everything that was outside her own world; she had a tendency to esteem a thing just because it was not part of her world — even more if it was excluded by her world. She herself was not quite of that world, but did not belong to any other either.

    “She gave the impression of living in a general condition of alienation, but that did not prevent her from operating successfully in many different milieux.”

    Mr Julius’s book, Trials of the Diaspora, examines the history of anti-Semitism in England.

    Diana dated respected heart surgeon Hasnat Khan, from Jhelum, Pakistan,

    Within a month Diana had begun seeing Dodi Al-Fayed

    Posting this just to note what a great woman she was...

    Coincidentally, it's actually good irony considering the thread article though. Such "empathy for jews," yet dated ridiculous muslims.

    It is because of her that so many young girls across Europe have been given the impression that it is perfectly alright to date a muslim.
    They feel that if it is okay for the fairy tale princess to do it then so can they.
    In turn, it also awakened a deep attraction in young muslim boys toward European girls.

    Like her cousin Winston Churchill, a traitor to the core.

    Well, someone should tell Miss Princess Diana that the Germans have had the greatest influence on the entire world throughout the very puny history of Humanity.

    Oh...wait....

    I'm a little skeptical about the source, but if true it only reinforces my belief that Diana was a complete fruit. It was a huge mistake picking from the aristocracy when there were no doubt more suitable candidates from the Continent. And one has to wonder what will transpire should Kate become Princess; the Royal Family seems rather bent on making itself more acceptable to the common masses than maintaining a pure bloodline.

    As for: "She was undereducated in the approved style of her class and gender."

    No, I think she was naturally vain and unintelligent and her failings in education largely her fault.

    Overall, though, I think this guy's character assessment is rather vague and generalized--the kind of fluff that psychics use to sound legitimate. (The term for this escapes me at the moment.) Which again makes me question the credibility...

    Princess Diana 'Regretted Marrying into German Family'

    I'm sure the Windsors also have their own regrets about the entire sordid affair.
