New Audio Tapes Reveal Depressed Princess Di
POSTED: 8:53 a.m. EST March 5, 2004

NEW YORK -- Six years after her death, the world is hearing Princess Diana talk about her troubled marriage -- in audio tapes that have never been heard in public before.

NBC is broadcasting the tapes as part of a two-part special called "Princess Diana: The Secret Tapes." The first part aired Thursday night -- with the second piece scheduled for next week.

The tapes come from interviews Diana conducted for Andrew Morton's 1992 book "Diana: Her True Story." Morton didn't reveal that the princess herself was his main source until after her death in 1997. Do you think that Princess Diana's death was accidental?YesNo

Audiotapes paint a portrait of a depressed and disillusioned Diana -- infuriated by her husband's affair and her feelings of inadequacy, which she blamed on him.

She said he made her feel "inadequate in every possible way."

The Princess of Wales, who died in a 1997 auto accident in Paris, described her early knowledge of Prince Charles' affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, her battle with bulimia, and several suicide attempts. She said all her hopes and optimism were dashed "by day two."

Diana said her eating disorder "started the week after she and Charles were engaged, when he suggested her waistline was a bit chubby.

She said after she threw herself down some stairs despite being pregnant, her husband went riding.

The network admits the tapes don't reveal anything new, but they could offer something just as powerful -- a trip back in time to when the much-loved princess was still alive.

NBC isn't saying how much it paid author Andrew Morton's publisher for the tapes, which served as the basis of the special.
