The world was shocked by the death of Princess Diana in 1997 at the tender age of 36 in a terrible car accident in Paris. Her last Will and Testament were kept secret since her death but according to reports, it seems likely that her wishes will be made known to the public. This news is likely to send a shudder down the collective spines of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. If there is any hidden information about their affair it may well be made public upon the unveiling of the Will.
According to The Today Show, the princess left an estimated £25 million to her sons Harry and William and it is reported that they received most, if not all, of it on their respective 30th birthdays. Additionally, William received his mother’s engagement ring which was given to Kate Middleton while Harry received Diana’s wedding dress; it is likely he will give it to his future bride.
It has also been revealed that the princess asked her mother Frances to be in charge of her sons’ education in the event of her untimely death which unfortunately occurred. According to the author of The New Royal Family, Robert Jobson, Diana ensured that her kids would receive all the love and attention they needed. It will be interesting to see if she left Prince Charles anything in her Will though it is unlikely given their acrimonious parting.
If nothing else, there will be a lot of interest when the Will is read out as we are eager to learn if there are any royal secrets about to be revealed.
