Britain's Princess Diana tried to cut her wrists weeks after her weddingJune 12, 2017 23:13
Diana was so unhappy in the few weeks after her fairy tale wedding with Prince Charles that she tried to slash her wrists, according to the transcripts of secret tapes of the popular princess.
The shock revelations were made in a book about her battles with depression, life with Charles and his lover Camilla .
"I was so depressed, and I was trying to cut my wrists with razor blades," The Princess of Wales is quoted as saying.
The "suicide" tapes - are believed to have been recorded in 1991 with the help of a friend - and have remained secret for 20 years.
Diana in the tapes tells how life became a misery after life in Balmoral during their honeymoon.
"I got terribly, terribly thin. People started commenting: 'Your bones are showing.' By October (1981) I was in a very bad way," she said.
"I was so depressed, and I was trying to cut my wrists with razor blades. It rained and rained and rained. I came down early (to London) to seek treatment, not because I hated Balmoral, but because I was in such a bad way.
"I was so depressed, and I was trying to cut my wrists with razor blades, she was quoted as saying.
She also reveals how she kept looking for Camilla Parker Bowles, her love rival, even as she walked down the aisle at her wedding.
"As I walked up the aisle, I was looking for Camilla. I knew she was in there."
