The world's love for and fascination with Princess Diana will likely remain forever, though a new documentary reveals pieces of Princess Diana’s life we didn’t know much about before--until now. Specifically, the film looks at what Diana was like before she became such a famous, iconic member of England's royal family.
And with the revelations in the film came one suprising one about her first meeting with Prince Charles--and how worried she was about something MANY of us can relate to: After she met Prince Charles, she felt their age difference (he was 31; she was only 19) would mean that he would never be interested in dating her.
We know what you're thinking: Boy, how wrong that turned out to be!
But, it's true: In a short clip from the documentary, Mary Robertson recalls hiring Diana as a nanny and talking about a trip the future princess took to Balmoral castle, the royal family’s Scottish getaway. Robertson asked Diana, then 19, if she'd met Prince Andrew (Prince Charles' younger brother).
“‘No, it was actually Charles, but his mother invited me,’” Robertson remembered Diana saying.
“I did say, ‘Oh, my gosh. Do you think anything’s going to develop?” she recalled in the film.

“And very regretfully, you know, staring down at the floor, she said, ‘No, I don't think he'd look twice at me. After all, he’s 31 and I'm only 19.’ I said, ‘I wouldn’t be too sure,’” Robertson said.
Aww! Perhaps that humble lack of confidence is what still endears Princess Diana to so many of us today? We aren't sure--but we ARE glad she was totally wrong about the Prince's intentions all those years ago!
