Princess Diana was in the news for many reasons throughout her life. While the public adores her, she struggles with constant media scrutiny.
The former Princess of Wales has reportedly made a heartbreaking confession to TV presenter Paula Yates, whose quick-witted and long-standing love of flirtatiousness has made her one of Britain’s most famous one of the women.
Yates died of a heroin overdose in 2000, leaving behind four daughters.
Belinda Brewin, a friend of Yates, recalls in a new two-part Channel 4 documentary that tells the former Hearty breakfast When Paula was on the front page, the moderator was delighted, from Express.co.uk.
“I remember, we were on Fulham Road and we walked into this jewellery, we went in and Princess Diana was there.
Princess Diana said to Paula, ‘I love having you on the front page of the paper because it means I can rest today’. “
The documentary features friends and collaborators on Paula’s life, career and her high-profile marriage to Bob Geldof before her romance with Michael Hutchins, who died in Sydney in 1997.
According to media reports, Diana and Paula also met at Live Aid, a benefit concert organized by Paula’s husband, Bob Geldof, to raise money for those affected by the famine in Ethiopia.
