She was called that when she was Lady Diana, avoiding cameras and looking away when reporters came around. Probably the first instance was when she dashed away when reporters saw her with Charles fishing along the River Dee.

Maybe it was endearing to them that she seemed shy and in a way it can be viewed as sweet and cute which make people kinda of protective of those like that I guess. I don't think they meant it in a bad way. She sure broke out of that shyness though.  tehe

  She hated the name Di.   Some people to this day call her Lady Di, which is not her correct title or name.

Are there written records referring to the fact that Diana was called Lady Di during her school years?

^ No, Diana wasn't called Lady Di during her school years, for the simple fact that she wasn't a peer's daughter throughout most of those years. Her father was Viscount Althorp (courtesy title of the Spencer heir) until 1975 when Diana was fourteen. Until then she and her siblings were simply Honorables or Hons, as in the Hon Diana Spencer. I think the Di bit after she became well known was an invention of the Press. I never heard of any of her friends or family calling her Di ever.

Her family and friends (pre-Charles) called her Duch.

^Rosella and dianab, Thank you for all information on the title of Lady Diana! At least I knew she would have been referred to as Her Ladyship.

  British press tend to be tacky and ignorant and cater to those of the same ilk.
