18 Ways Princess Diana Shook Up The Royal House
Beside her, always
It was the tradition before Diana became a princess and mother for the heirs to the throne to not travel on the same conveyance as the current prince. It was a way to ensure that the line of succession was secure. Diana, however, bucked against this tradition when it called for her to leave nine-month-old William behind while she and Charles traveled to Australia. Diana wouldnâ€™t take no for an answer when it was suggested she leave the baby with nannies. Not only that, Diana was insistent that her baby travel in the same plane as her. This surprised many royal insiders, since Diana has been a shy presence in both the palace and media until then.
