Princess Diana’s friend request Harry to end feud with William
She was a loyal confidante who provided Princess Diana with solace and direction during some of the most difficult times in her life.
She was a good friend of Diana’s. Psychotherapist and grief specialist Julia Samuel treated her boys with the same tenderness and compassion she had shown Diana.
Ms. Samuel has such close ties to the royal family that she was selected to be Prince George’s godmother and was present during the unveiling of the Diana memorial statue in Kensington Gardens with Princes William and Harry. Ms. Samuel’s son, Diana, has Diana as a godmother.
In the wake of the devastating accusations made in his book, Spare, Ms. Samuel has released a peculiar video on her Instagram, which many have interpreted as a frightened plea for Prince Harry to repair his relationship with his brother. Ms. Samuel warns that “major disputes” can arise in families following a “unexpected death,” adding that “where we love most, we hate most.” However, she stays away from talking about the Princes by name.
Despite admitting that she, too, had experienced family strife, Ms. Samuel considered herself “lucky” that these disagreements had been kept hidden, as “none of us want the darkest pieces of ourselves to be exposed.”
Ms. Samuel claims that there is “no one truth” and “no favourite child” in the video, which she posted to her 40,000 subscribers. Her words appear to be an indirect response to Harry’s defence of his controversial book as being written for the sake of “truth,” which has been at the centre of their disagreement.
In his memoirs, produced by an American ghostwriter named J.R. Moehringer, Harry claims that William “lunging” at him. On top of that, Harry says that William slammed him to the ground and tore his necklace.
Throughout the book, Harry complains about being unfairly treated as William’s “heir,” divulging details like how he was given a smaller bedroom than William when they were kids.
“I’ve been thinking about families and about how every family has a story. We all have a story of love and loss and joy and pain and that within every family where we love most we hate most and make our deepest mistakes and there is no such thing as a perfect family,” Ms. Samuel has to say in the clip.
