Diana Spencer dreamed big. The former wife of Prince Charles, who died tragically in a car accident on 31 August 1997, was above all an ambitious woman. According to a friend of the princess, a famous actor made her a tempting proposal before she tragically passed away.
For the first time in 24 years, Stewart Pearce, author of Diana: The Voice of Change, is making rare confidences:
Diana was planning to take her sons William and Harry to the United States while her romance with Dodi Fayed blossomed.
Gifted and committed, the young aristocrat dreamed of taking her first steps in Hollywood. Although she dazzled the cameras during her appearances, Lady Di did not want to become an actress. Like her youngest son Harry, the princess wanted to get behind the camera. Indeed, the famous actor Kevin Costner, star of the film TheBodyguard, is said to have approached the princess to discuss a possible sequel to the film.
Lady Diana wanted to make documentaries
In a 'phone call,' the two are said to have discussed a 'kissing scene' at her request. According to Pearce, Dodi Fayed's lover was also planning to move to the US with William and Harry. A performing arts enthusiast, the commoner did not want to be in the limelight. Pearce said:
Acting was not something she considered to be her career path.
But regularly, the Princess of Wales went to the theatre. And after her divorce, the Duchess of Cornwall had not lost sight of her ambitions:
One of the main opportunities she wanted to create was to start developing documentaries about three charitable interests that would then be assimilated into major films.
A friend of British producer Lord David Puttnam, Princess Diana was discussing her future projects with her new lover Dodi:
I don't know how serious Dodi was about fulfilling his practice as a producer. They were just possibilities being discussed.
Curious, she questioned those around her from time to time:
She asked me: Do you think it's a good idea, and talked about documentaries and feature films?
One thing is for sure, this passion is now perpetuated by her youngest son, Harry.
