The Heartbreaking Way The Queen Found Out About Princess Diana’s Death

The Queen reacted this way to Princess Diana's death.

Queen Elizabeth was highly criticized regarding her actions following the death of her former daughter-in-law Princess Diana in 1997. British author Ingrid Seward, who covered the lives of the royal family for 18 years, says the monarch’s stiff upper lip hid her heartbreak in her book The Queen & Di.

Readers Digest reported that the women had a relationship much like one of an actual mother and daughter and the queen continued to have deep-rooted feelings for Diana despite the fact that she and Prince Charles had formally divorced in 1996 and Diana’s death was still a great loss for Britain’s monarch.

Seward penned that when Princess Diana’s tragic car accident occurred, the Queen was soundly asleep at Balmoral Castle, her summer home in Scotland.

The author noted that the monarch was woken by one of her aides and met her son, Prince Charles, in the corridor, where he explained that Diana and Dodi Fayed, had been involved in a car accident in Paris.
