Letters of Princess Diana to Buckingham Palace head steward turns out that Prince Harry was “constantly in trouble” at a boarding school.

Diana sent the six handwritten notes, which is expected to sell for thousands of pounds at auction – Cyril Dickman in the 1980’s and’ 90’s.

In one of them, sent five days after Harry’s birth in September 1984, Diana said it was a “very happy time”

She added: “William loves his little brother and spends the entire time swamping Harry with an endless supply of hugs and kisses, hardly let the parents in the neighborhood!


“The reaction on a little one’s birth has overwhelmed us, and I can hardly breathe for the mass of flowers that come in here!”

In another letter, sent in October 1992, Diana said: “The boys are well and enjoy the school a lot, although Harry is constantly in trouble!”

After the death of her father in the same year, Diana tells Mr. Dickman: “Thank you for thinking of us in this sad and difficult time… I miss my Father terribly.”

The collection also includes a box piece of cake from the Queen’s wedding in 1947, Christmas cards and photos.

Cheffins auctioneers in Cambridge said that there had been international interest.


Auctioneer Luke MacDonald told Sky News: “They give a more personal insight into the life of the royal family (that) perhaps we can relate to much more than the more formal time we see them in the press and on television.

“Her Royal Highness Princess Diana was adored by many people. I think that people have the feeling that to actually be a letter, handwritten by her – it is something very special.”

On Mr. dickman’s retirement in 1992, Princess Diana wrote: “Cyril, you will be missed by this special Lady – I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so kind to me the rest of the year to take care of yourself, fondest love from Diana x.”
