I think this is a show about very sad emotional infants, people who were never allowed to be; it was like they had to reach unattainable perfection, and no one is perfect; no wonder why they were all dysfunctional and acted like children, especially Charles. If everybody’s done for you your whole life and if you’ve never really had to deal with adversity, you don’t learn how to deal with it; so you react to life like an infant. An emotionally sober man would have been proud of his wife garnering so much attention, but Charles was only concerned about himself because he hadn’t been able to marry the woman he loved; so to him Diana was nothing more than competition. And that was sad because SHE really loved Charles, despite him being an emotional infant.
I think Diana was able to get over because she was pretty. Had she not been pretty, people would not have taken to her the way they did. Camilla was right, we’re all into the fairy tales; believing that beauty=goodness and ugliness=evil. A look at comments sections of various websites shows that; if someone (especially a woman) is either unattractive, overweight or old it’s like: go away, go in the closet because no one wants to see you!
The scene last between the Queen and Thatcher was weird, because both women were from an era where you weren’t supposed to show ANY type of emotion or feeling. They thought it made you weak (such bullshit!). The scene was weird because it was like one mask talking to another mask. There was no compassion, no emotion on either side. I think Thatcher leaving the box was intentional. She was upset, she couldn’t show it, she just had to get out of there.
