After a bold move that saw Princess Diana move away from Prince Charles, and the Royal Family, it was revealed when Princess Diana “found her power”.
This is in advance of Spencer’s highly anticipated release. Spencer is a biographical film about Diana, who decides to divorce Prince Charles.
It was revealed that Diana appeared on Vogue’s cover looking far from royalty in December 1991.
The Princess wore a simple black polo neck with Mary Greenwell, her make-up artist. This shoot was a significant milestone.
She shared her story with the TelegraphThis is: “The moment she found her power was doing the Vogue cover, it changed everything for her.
“The event was organized separately from the Royals through Anna Harvey, Vogue fashion editor and stylist. It was hugely empowering for her because it wasn’t about anything other than being absolutely herself.”
Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty magazine, who knew, interviewed, and wrote about Diana being someone who could “‘be different things on different days, even on the same day”.
Both Mary Greenwell and Sam McKnight described Diana as a woman who was conscious and in control. “I remember her walking into the studio and it was like we’d known her all our lives, she was so un-royal.”
McKnight stated: “Of course we curtsied, but after that we just laughed and laughed,’ says Greenwell. ‘She disarmed us all.”
Seward added: “She was charming, funny and really normal – that was a huge part of her attraction. It was never in a fake way. I don’t think Diana saw herself as a victim at all.
“She saw herself as a single woman before the end of her marriage. She was very funny about it all, that’s how she dealt with life – she was either crying or laughing.”
One year later, in December 1992 Prime Minister John Major announced Wale’s separation from the House of Commons.
The same day, Princess Diana was seen at Tyne and Wear school wearing a Chanel jacket featuring the distinctive CC buttons.
Jayson Brunsdon, Australian fashion editor, revealed later that Diana could not wear the infamous CC Logo. “it’s Camilla and Charles”.
However, it may have signalled her thoughts on the end of their marriage on that day.
Seward stated: “Once the separation was over, the Royal family breathed a big sigh of relief and Diana became much stronger, she became a very independent woman and started doing the things she wanted to.”
