Continuing Channel 4’s in-depth discovery into the private life of Princess Diana, this film explores the relationship young Diana had with her stepmother, Raine Spencer.
Raine was constantly involved in scandals with her no-nonsense attitude towards making money: selling off family heirlooms and using Diana’s marriage to Charles to cash in. Yet, when Diana found her marriage in tatters, she did something unforeseen and reached out to Raine for support. Her hated Stepmother went on to become one of the princesses’ most trusted confidants.
