Following the bombshell Oprah interview and the birth of Meghan and Harry’s daughter, Lilibet Diana, Princess Diana has been in the news a lot lately and we have a feeling it’s about to ramp up even more. Diana’s voice coach, Stewart Pearce, released his long-awaited book on the beloved Princess of Wales last year and in his latest interview, he’s sharing even more private details of his relationship with the late Diana. In this new anecdote about a special exchange he shared with Diana, Pearce reveals what inspired him to finally get the book out on paper.
In an interview with Town & Country, Pearce revealed that he had a discussion with Diana about writing a book on his experience working with her. Diana had one specific request, to wait until her sons were married to write it. “She said to me, ‘Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all this work we’ve done became a book? And I said, ‘Yeah, that would be wonderful. Wouldn’t it?’ She said, “Yes, but don’t write it until the boys are married, because then they’re going to be exploring their own power in the world and discovering their own sovereignty.’ And that was just a passing statement, so I thought that was rather amusing, but I waited until now.” We just have to say, we absolutely love that he respected her wishes, even though it was just a passing statement. We think it shows just how much he cared and respected her.
So what exactly is the book supposed to be about? It isn’t your typical Princess Diana biography, but instead, a celebration of her amazing qualities. “I wanted to go to the very essence of who she was and to talk about the quality of her soul, which was just so remarkable in its beauty, in its loving, in its compassion, in its empathy.”
It seems like this book may be one of the most intimate sources of information available on Diana given how close the friendship was between the princess and her voice coach. We can only imagine the vast amount of insight he has on her life and, as he put it, her essence.
