Did Princess Diana remarry?
Princess Diana never remarried after divorcing Prince Charles.
It's been claimed she put her desires to have a second husband aside, because of her son, Prince William.
According to royal commentator Ingrid Seward, Prince William wanted his mother "all to himself" despite his younger brother Prince Harry’s desire for Princess Diana to have another baby.
While Diana expressed her hopes for a new life with a new man, Prince William, who will one day take the throne as King at Buckingham Palace, was reluctant to share his mother.
Ingrid says that Diana told her that she didn’t see herself being single forever but was aware that she needed somebody who could "cope" with her being a mother to two princes and her hectic life in the royal spotlight
Ingrid explained, "In June 1997 we discussed if she’d get married again. She said Harry was always asking her to have another baby because he was fed up with being the youngest."
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ingrid continued, "She said she’d love more children, and she didn’t see herself being single forever. Harry wanted her to get married again, but William didn’t."
"William wanted Diana to be there, all for him.
"Then she said, 'Well, I have to marry someone who’s prepared to cope with me'. Meanwhile, of course, she had the idea of marrying Hasnat Khan all the time in her mind, but hadn’t told me about this."
Ingrid further divulged that she and Princess Diana had "talked about the sort of person she could marry" with Ingrid joking that said she needed a young American with a huge estate.
Diana and heart surgeon Hasnat dated for two years in the 1990s and she reportedly had hopes to have two daughters with him.
The couple broke up just months before Diana tragically died in a car crash in Paris in August 1997.
