But she fell a few steps on a landing. Not the entire staircase. She would have had broken bones and had been hospitalized if she fell down an entire staircase.. One does not have to fall down an entire flight of stairs in falling.

This episode does still  not excuse the behavior of Charles and Camilla. Or whitewash it. Junor's and other's methods of "helping" C and C is to trash Diana.

She and Charles had a row over Camilla at the time. If she wanted to kill herself she would have done so. A fall down a few steps would not even break a bone.

It speaks volumes about the marriage if it's true that he felt upstaged. sly What sort of husband would feel upstaged instead of really proud and more in love with his wife? All this family needs longs therapy sessions.

^^ That wouldn't have changed one thing, because even if he had married a princess, it'd be held against her that she wasn't English and even if she were, still, she'd be a mere princess, not heiress to any throne and therefore still of less importance. No one could in the mind of the prince of Wales be more importand than him, ever; he, the direct heir to the throne! And not to be the only one not to have a mistress! Heavens forbid! Any wife would have lost that battle with him, save for one with a mind like his and Camz's, the old fashioned aristocratic one: spouses are free to bed anyone willing, her too, once the business of heir and spare is done. Unless Charles had a different set of code, many had (have) those: he can dip his wick in anything, whilst she better stay faithful...

^Indeed. I agree with you.

 Disgusting double standards society seems to have, but to me the worse thing isn't only about the code Charles would have, it's what the whole society and especially the aristocratic circles they moved in crucifying Diana for her actions. Some people like Penny Junor forgive Charles everything and villify Diana for giving as good as she got. How would any of us have managed such a situation? dontknow She was always going to be a bit on the side because she would never really belong to the BRF, not good enough for a husband who wanted to be coddled and worshiped, then the her self-esteem issues, her emotional issues, her age and emotional immatury...it's not like any girl her age in the same circumstances would've fared better.  I think many of the hardships Diana faced and yes she made a lot of mistakes but it's not like the odds were in her favour, in my opinion.
