One royal fashion expert has claimed, Princess Diana revolted against Prince Charles’ alter ego by choosing her shoes after their marriage fell apart.
According to a new royal title The Lady Di Look Book: What Diana Was Trying to Tell Us Through Her Clothes, a fashion expert told how the late princess would refuse to wear heels that make her much taller than Prince Charles, in an effort not to affect his “ego”.
Eloise Moran, who wrote the release, explained that Diana, who is believed to have stood the same height as Charles at 5’10, ditched the 2-inch rule when the marriage began to rock.
Princess Diana and Prince Charles married at St Paul’s Cathedral, London in July 1981 after meeting at Diana’s family home, Althorpe House, in 1977.
But the relationship began to deteriorate shortly after their wedding, with Prince Charles having an affair with his now-wife, Duchess Camilla, and Diana later describing the marriage as “crowded” during an interview with Martin Bashir in 1995.
Besides her iconic moment of revenge, Diana made sure to send Charles a message with her dress in the best way after the breakup.
“For years, Diana wore shoes no more than two inches high out of respect for her husband’s vanity,” Eloise wrote, according to Insider, adding that as Diana’s confidence increased after the divorce “so did her heel.”
“Jimmy Choo recalls that in the beginning of their seven-year friendship, Diana always demanded flat shoes, and then, as her marriage began to fall apart, the heels got higher,” the book continues, quoting Jimmy Choo as saying, “First she went up two inches. , then three inches, then three inches, then three inches. They just kept creeping up.”
