Princess Diana remains one of the British Royal Family’s most controversial members, but is still praised and adored by people around the world. Her fearless, compassionate nature and the will to uplift society still inspires millions worldwide.
But while the People’s Princess was known for her captivating smile and fiery personality, behind all that was a secret life she lived for years! Long after Diana had already lived through the many health struggles, did she reveal the plight she underwent.
In a BBC interview that took place in 1995, Martin Bashir asked Diana, “It was subsequently reported that you suffered [from] bulimia. Is that true?”
To which she replied, “Yes, I did. I had bulimia for a number of years. And that’s like a secret disease.”
At the time, she was married to Prince Charles, who is infamous for his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, who he married later in 2005.
