It is not the horror of landmines

that is making a headline back home.

Reports of the Princess'

romance with Dodi Fayed...

Speculations fueled by the

arrival last night...

Diana, Princess of Wales, has been

formally separated from her husband,

Prince Charles for

nearly three years.


- Diana!

- Diana!



- Diana, this way!

- Over here!

Over here, Di!

Looks like the check's in the post.

This way, Princess.

Over here!


Are you getting a divorce?

Di, are you getting a divorce?

Di, are you getting a divorce?


It's been a long week,

you must all be very tired.

Go home.

And thank you.

Where would you like to supper,

Your Royal Highness?

I don't want anything, everyone

can go home. Thank you.

So yes I...

I did infict on myself.

I didn't like myself.

I was ashamed that I couldn't

cope with the pressures.

So, I just hurt my arms.

So I just hurt my arms

and my legs.

There were 3 of us in this marriage.

So it's a bit crowded.

The most persistent criticism

is that as the marriage broke down...

You were unfaithful

to your wife.

That's a persistent criticism, is it?

That's a persistent criticism, is it?

And open your eyes.

Would you like a pin?


It keeps coming back.

That dream I told you about.

Falling into darkness?

It's not falling.

It's being dropped.

Someone's doing it to me.

And take a breath.

I think perhaps you're afraid

of letting go.


I hang on to things,

like my marriage.

You're a cancerian.

You hang on to the idea of love.

Cause you're so good

at giving love.

So you keep on giving.

The hard part is receiving love.

But if I can't receive it,

I'm back where it started.

And where is that?

On the doorstep.

A little girl waiting for

her mother to return.

Perhaps that little girl should finally

stand up and walk into the garden.

It's been 30 years.

In your dream,

who's pushing you?

It's not the point, Oonagh.

The point is...

Will anyone catch me?

Just use the same...

Right then.

I suppose it's too late

to back out now.

It's fine, Wills. Just take

care not to shoot any carcass.

I'll see you next weekend.

The one after.

If that's what the palace

have decided...

No, it's fine with me.

As long as you're happy.

I miss you too.

I'm at the opera.

Having a great time.

I love you.

Bye, darling.

There's something coming up.

A nuclear submarine

needs to be named.

I've indicated to the palace

you might be willing to do it.

Perhaps you can indicate to the palace

that I'd like to see my children.

More than once every 5 weeks.

The submarine, I think in the current

situation it'll be sensible.

A nuclear submarine?

I want to help people.

It's still possible

you might be queen one day.

Like it or not, you're going to have an

army and navy who will be helping people...

- By...

- Shut up!

Sorry, Patrick.

Your Royal Highness,

there's a call from Oonagh.

She said it's urgent.

Excuse me, intensive care?

- Second floor on the right.

- Thank you.

He had a hemorrhage.

It sometimes happens

with bypass operations.

Mrs. Toffollo.


This is Diana.

Joseph's condition is still

very serious.

I need your permission to

take him back this afternoon.

Of course.

Do please look after him.

He is very precious.

He's going to be alright.


That man knows what he's doing,

don't you think?

- Are you going down?

- Yes.

Thanks, I was...

Just think Joseph's so much better.

Mr Toffollo is not on that floor.


Yes, I got lost and...

You know, went a bit wrong.

Actually, I didn't get lost.

I was snooping.
