Golden Cage: princesses whose life is far from a fairy tale

July 1, 2018 Princess Diana could have turned 57 years old. Recalling the story of her life, we collected evidence that the fate of women, whom everyone dreams to be like, can be far from ideal.

They married the prince, got the best room in the castle with a servant, began to wear clothes and hairstyles ... But did the blue-blooded husband and the luxurious life bring them happiness? Probably not. Most of the most beloved public princesses never thought or did not consider themselves happy.

Lady Diana, or Lady Di, ranks third on the list of the hundred greatest Britons in history. She was considered an icon of style while communicating with homeless people on an equal footing, helping orphans and doing everything possible to make people live better in her country. In return, the Princess of Wales received the recognition and love of the people, but not ... her spouse, Prince Charles.

Native Diana Francis Spencer met Prince Charles when she was 16. Then the heir to the British throne came to her hometown of Elthorpe to go hunting. Four years later, the royal family announced the engagement of Diana and Prince Charles, and their wedding was the most high-profile event of 1981. Then they began to appear together, their sons were born - Prince William and Prince Harry. It seemed that the life of an ordinary girl from the suburbs was like a fairy tale. In addition, Princess Diana always smiled and laughed. No one suspected that from the first days of her marriage she felt alien and unloved.

Prince Charles did not like Diana. Even when they got married, he continued to date his old friend Camilla Parker-Bowles. In the meantime, Lady Dee suffered from depression, bulimia and was cutting her arms and legs. In the fourth month of pregnancy, the princess fell from letnitse to attract the attention of her husband. But it was all useless.

Fourteen years after the marriage, Princess Diana and Prince Charles officially divorced, signing an agreement on non-disclosure of the reasons for their separation. A year later, in 1997, Lady Dee was gone.She died in a car accident in Paris with her friend, film producer Dodi Al-Fayed and driver Henri Paul. The men died on the spot, and Diana was two hours later after she was taken to hospital. She was 36 years old.

The life of Grace Kelly can not be called a story about Cinderella. She was born to a wealthy industrialist and lived in a luxurious house in Philadelphia. But she wanted independence, she dreamed about the main roles in film and life in Hollywood. In pursuit of the American dream, Grace had to leave her parents and at first earn a living by supporting roles in plays and filming in commercials. But a miracle happened. She was noticed, and before meeting the Prince of Monaco, Rainier III, she managed to play in 10 successful films and even get an Oscar. She was predicted a dizzying career and huge fees. But everything changed the case.

During the shooting of the film �Catch a Thief� on the French Riviera, the actress meets her future husband, Prince Rainier III of Monaco. A year later, they got married, and Grace Kelly stopped filming a movie.From the side it might seem that she was lucky: to be a princess is much more interesting than to be an actress. But no.

Sources close to Grace said that almost from the first day of marriage she was in a golden cage. Kelly was poorly received in the palace of his spouse, and he himself often laughed at her. He did not like that she was engaged in charity work and was included in the lists of favorite monarchs of the world. Maternity, too, did not bring her happiness. Bringing up children involved in nannies, and she could not be take off as often as she wanted.

Grace Kelly�s life was cut short in 1982, when she was 52 years old. While driving, she had a stroke, and she had an accident. Princess Monaco died the next day.

The youngest daughter of Grace Kelly and Prince of Monaco Rainier III, Princess Stephanie received a brilliant upbringing and education. She studied at the boarding house De Dams de Sant Mor in Monaco, attended courses in Dupanlu in Paris, and took an internship at the Christian Dior fashion house. Growing up, Princess Stefania tried herself as a singer and even gained some recognition from the public, but then left this occupation for charity and political affairs.Currently, the heir to the throne is the president of the Monaco Youth Center, a member of the committee of the Foundation Grace Foundation in the United States, the goodwill ambassador of UNAIDS ... In addition, she, as expected, is considered the main guest of all social events. It seems that she has not a life, but a dream!

However, in fact, few people guess about the personal experiences of Princess Stephanie. And it is not only that at the age of 17 she lost her mother before her eyes (it was Stefania who was with Grace Kelly in the car on that fateful day of auto-catastrophe, but survived in an amazing way). In the personal life of the daughter of Prince of Monaco, Rainier III also has never been unlucky. Her first marriage with bodyguard Daniel Ducre only lasted a year and ended in scandalous divorce. The public domain was the intimate video of the princess's husband with an unknown girlfriend. Stephanie's second marriage with acrobat Adan Lopez Perez also lasted a year. Now the princess is 52 years old, and in her life only the work and upbringing of three children.

Masako is called the �Japanese Diana� and the �Sad Princess�.Already by these definitions it is not difficult to guess that her life is not like a fairy tale.

She was born in the family of the diplomat Hisashi Ovada, so that before the marriage on the prince she managed to travel around the world, learn several languages, get an excellent education and even start a diplomat�s career at the Foreign Ministry in Japan. She met Prince Naruhito at one of the diplomatic receptions, which, as it turned out, arranged for the selection of a bride for him. Masako immediately liked the heir to the throne, and he made her an offer, but ... was refused. And this was repeated twice. Only the third sentence of a hand and heart, the career woman, agreed, believing Narukhito�s arguments that, if necessary, he would protect her from attacks, and her diplomatic skills would be useful at court. However, this did not happen.

The first misunderstanding between the prince and the daughter of a diplomat happened on the first day of the wedding, when Mozako had to wear a wedding kimono of the 10th century. Then she had to endure bans on career and independent movement, the birth of a daughter, not a son-heir, as demanded in her surroundings, and then stress, depression and, as a result, reduced adaptation syndrome.

In July 2008, Prince Naruhito officially declared that Princess Masako could not appear in public because of a disease diagnosed as an adaptation disorder syndrome. In the past few years, fortunately, a message has appeared that the wife of the heir to the throne has improved. But whether she can completely defeat the disease is still unknown.

Princess Amira al-Tawil has not officially been a princess for a long time, but in society she is still called that. And all thanks to the active charity work with which she especially filled her life after her divorce from Saudi Prince Al-Walid ibn Talal.

At first, her life resembled the story of Cinderella. Just getting to know a prince is worth something! At 18, she was supposed to interview the heir to the throne of Al-Walid ibn Talal for a school newspaper and he liked it so much that he proposed to her. Amira at-Tawil agreed, and the age difference did not bother her: the prince was 28 years older than her. So a girl from a simple family, who grew up without a father, instantly became known to the whole world.

But her tale was with a sad ending.After 12 years of marriage, she divorced. Some say that the reason for the divorce was her childlessness. Others believe that her problems with women's health were allegedly known even before marriage with the prince. In any case, to save the family she failed. However, Amir al-Tawil is still loved by society, continues to fight for the rights of women in the East, and participates in social events.
