Princess Diana’s ‘beautiful blue’ eyes were full of ‘sadness’ on wedding day, says friend


PRINCESS DIANA’s sadness on her wedding day was spotted by a close photographer and friend who covered nearly every event in Diana’s life since.

While it appeared to be a royal fairytale wedding to the public, according to a royal photographer, Princess Diana wanted to call it off one day before the ceremony.

“But, little did we know – as we now know – that Diana wanted to call the wedding off the day before, and it was only her sister Sarah who said, ‘it’s too late now, Duck, your face is on the tea towels’,” photographer Kent Gavin told Australian news outlet, 9Honey.

“And when she went through with it, could you imagine how she felt, knowing what was going on with Camilla?

“When she walked down the aisle, Camilla was two rows back so you can imagine what she was thinking.”

The award-winning royal photographer who grew close to Diana after her wedding has revealed that on her wedding day there was a foreshadowing of the tragic future the royal couple will face.

Speaking about the wedding day Mr Gavin said: “I remember on the day, those beautiful blue eyes under the veil, and the sadness that was there – she was a lot happier when she left [the cathedral] and when she saw the reaction from the crowd.”

During Mr Gavin’s 60 year career as a royal photographer, he has developed close ties with many members of the Royal Family.

However, he has said that he got along best with the late Princess of Wales.

“I went everywhere with her,” Mr Gavin said.

“We had a lot of fun – she liked my Cockney accent, we always had a little banter wherever we were, it was a working relationship but a friendly one.”

The photographer has won countless awards including Royal Photographer of the Year seven times.

He was also named Royal Photographer of the Decade, twice – in the 1980s and 1990s.
