Princess Diana and Richard Burton: Getting Past Betrayal
Updated: Feb 28
Betrayal is an open door. My loved ones, try to step through it.
Ann: Princess Diana?*
Princess Diana: Diana, please. And hello, Richard. You are one of the few people I can think of who might truly understand my predicament on the planet – and it was that.
Richard: Oh yes, my lady, it was. I cannot imagine what it was to be trapped inside a beautiful body, a pampered lifestyle, and yet held away from all that fed your soul, but I too allowed myself to step into a very similar trap. No matter how often I cried for the father and mother that I wished had existed in my childhood, no matter my brilliance celebrated high and low, it was never enough to bring me what was lost in that fundamental betrayal, and, as a result, I was kept off the team.
You, my lady, had much the same circumstances in that those who benefited from your charisma and fame did not want you to be a part of their club. We could have walked away perhaps, but we did not, and, sister, did we suffer the consequences of that decision.
And all because of ambition. Ambition was the substitute for the Mother and Father love that had deserted us both in one way or another. Talk to me, to us, to Ann and her readers, for many of us understand about being abandoned, then co-opted, and perhaps making the wrong decisions.
Diana: Yes, I appreciate the forum. Richard, you have been such a help to me on this side of the veil. You have shown me a way of giving back and atoning, if that is the right word, all at the same time.
I don’t really like that word, atoning ,because Richard, I, you, and almost everyone out there is doing the best they can to make their life be something they can be proud of, but we do get sidetracked and tripped up by our own confused ambitions as Richard has said.
I longed for a haven most of my life but went about finding it the wrong way. Although I did enthusiastically what I was expected to do in marrying Charles and was thrilled to be able to bring it home for the team, for my family, I truly thought we could mean something for each other and for other people also. But I have to admit, I loved the high life.
Well, as you know, Richard, that life has its pitfalls, and yet each of us has come to see those with whom we consorted were betrayed as much as we were ourselves. It is with that understanding that we can best be of use to people now.
What I would like to say is that betrayal is a part of life – everyone’s life. There is not a one of you out there who has not suffered a serious betrayal, a betrayal that changed the course of your life, perhaps externally, yes, but more importantly inside your heart. From that point on. each of us carried on in a guarded, perhaps even gilded, cage no matter the disparity in our circumstances.
And now we are asked to lay all that aside and trust that the universe has our back. “What cheek!” I can hear you say.
Although betrayal was a large part of my life, I was not a passive participant. And yet, hard as it is to grasp, I came to see that it was openness that would save me because, openness lets us be there for each other. The ordinary people I met were my teachers in how to move past betrayal, those who had been through one fire after another and who simply carried on with love in their hearts. They offered their hearts to me, and I was in awe of them.
Richard: Beautifully said, Diana. I’m afraid I was the agent of much betrayal in the worlds of the people passing through my door, and yet the simple openness of the children, my sister, and some of my family members never faltered. I thought to get back at the world for the betrayal, the loss of love, of a childhood and what happened? My family stepped up with nothing but love.
Betrayal is an open door. My loved ones, try to step through it. It is beautiful here on the other side, but you need not wait to die to experience that grandeur and all-encompassing love. Take your betrayals, bless them, then walk through that opening smiling at what you can give to all who have not yet recognized its blessing.
That is what Diana did every day of her life. Surely, each one of us can give it a try.
