Princess Diana, who married Prince Charles after meeting 13 times, had a “cold relationship” with him according to psychologist Jo Hemmings. Diana’s friend, Debbie Frank, revealed Diana would often call her multiple times a day. Speaking on the Channel 5 documentary, Fergie Vs Diana: Royal Wives At War, Ms Frank noted Diana would tell her how things were with Charles. The royal couple divorced in 1996 after 15 years of marriage.

Narrator Glynis Barber said: “Astrologer Debbie Frank was introduced to Diana in 1989 and soon became a close confidante.”

Ms Frank said: “Diana would just call me as and when which sometimes, particularly when we first met, was extremely frequently, sometimes more than once a day.

“What I helped Diana with was basically managing her feelings and her difficulties.

“She would often want to discuss public events she was attending, how they went and then obviously her personal life.

“How things were between Prince Charles.

“Diana and I established a very long friendship over the years until her death.”

The insight comes as royal biographer Richard Kay detailed how Diana felt that she was spied on by staff and had her movements reported.

But he explained the royal had decided just before her death she needed to stay at the Palace for her own safety.

The mother to Princes William and Harry officially moved into Apartment 8 and 9 at Kensington Palace after marrying Prince Charles in 1981.

Speaking to True Royalty TV, Mr Kay said: “It was a mixture for her. In many ways, it was a happy home and she had a lot of happy memories here raising William and Harry in the early days of the marriage which were actually quite happy.

“But it later became a prison for her.

“It symbolised everything which she found so frustrating about being a royal Princess.

“She felt spied on but the spying was only for her own protection.

“The security cameras you see all over the place.

“She felt that the police that guarded the palace were constantly reporting on her movements, who her friends were, who came to see her.

“It became a real difficulty for her because she couldn’t really decide if she wanted to completely break free from that royal life and strike out and live outside the palace or whether she needed the protection it afforded her.

“In the end, by the time of her death, I think she more or less decided she needed to stay here.”
