Letters sent by Diana, Princess of Wales to a Buckingham Palace head steward reveal that Prince Harry was “constantly in trouble” at boarding school. Diana sent the six handwritten notes – which are expected to sell for thousands of pounds at auction – to Cyril Dickman in the 1980s and 90s.
In one of them, sent five days after Harry’s birth in September 1984, Diana said it had been a “particularly happy time”. She added: “William adores his little brother and spends the entire time swamping Harry with an endless supply of hugs and kisses, hardly letting the parents near!”
In another letter, sent in October 1992, Diana said: “The boys are well and enjoying boarding school a lot, although Harry is constantly in trouble!” After the death of her father in the same year, Diana tells Mr Dickman: “Thank you for thinking of us at this sad and difficult time… I miss my Father dreadfully.”
