Prince Philip went and “told her she hadn’t been a caring wife

A new report claims Prince Philip and his daughter-in-law, Princess Diana, were at loggerheads right before she passed away.

According to The Express, royal expert Ingrid Seward has claimed Prince Philip tried to help Diana deal with her marriage breakdown to Prince Charles in a series of letters.

However, he is said to have went “ballistic” and called her “possessive” and “not a good mother” when she ignored his advice and aired her marriage woes in public.

It’s claimed Prince Philip wrote letters to the Princess at the beginning trying to help with her marriage woes.

Ingrid claims Prince Philip’s letters to Diana started out empathetic, signing off at the end with ‘Pa’.

He also reportedly wrote that he didn’t endorse Prince Charles’ affair with Camilla and said he and Queen “never dreamed he might feel like leaving you for her”.

However, things soured when Andrew Morton’s book Diana: Her True Story was serialized in the Sunday Times.

Ingrid claims Prince Philip went and “told her she hadn’t been a caring wife and that, while she was a good mother, she’d been too possessive with her sons”.

“One of his fiercest comments was: ‘Can you honestly look into your heart and say that Charles’s relationship with Camilla had nothing to do with your behaviour towards him in your marriage?’

“Towards the end of Princess Diana’s marriage to Charles, just the mention of her name was enough to send her father-in-law into a tirade.”

Philip was so enraged that he seemingly asked the Queen to cut back severely on the amount of public engagements Princess Diana was tasked with.

However, Diana again put one foot in front of him by announcing she was going to retire from public life completely.
