Princess Diana opens up about a time when she was happily married to Prince Charles

In a personal recording from Diana: In Her Own Words, Princess Diana talks about a time when her marriage was somewhat blissful. She reveals "Charles and I were very, very close to each other the six weeks before Harry born, the closet we had ever been and ever will have been." Unfortunately, this joyful period was short-lived. She further explains, "[a]nd then suddenly as Harry was born, it just went bang, our marriage, the whole thing down the drain."
