Princess Diana regretted marrying into German family: Book


In the book, 'Trials of the Diaspora', divorce lawyer Anthony Julius has claimed the Princess of Wales told him that she should have never married into British Royal Family, which is said to have German roots, to express empathy with him as a Jew, 'The Sunday Times' reported.
"She's interested in Jews but had no idea about them, save that Jewish men (she had heard) were more likely than the men of her own class and background to treat women decently.

"She was happy to take Jews to be hostile to every -thing to which she herself was hostile. She once said to me that she should never have married into a German family," the author wrote.

According to Julius, who was not a divorce specialist but was persuaded by the Princess to represent her, Princess Diana lived "as if in a vacuum".
"She was undereducated in the approved style of her class and gender. She was very receptive to new experiences, which meant she was sometimes taken by odd fancies. She had a strong desire to please, to leave her interlocutor happy but often without quite understanding what that person was about.

"She was intuitive, but not always accurate in her assessments of people. Sometimes she went wildly wrong -- not just in the big things, but in odd misreadings of moods or sentiments.I never had the feeling that she set out to impress ...perhaps she had surrendered that ambition as a child.

"She was interested in everything that was outside her own world; she had a tendency to esteem a thing just because it was not part of her world -- even more if it was excluded by her world," he wrote.
