Diana and Catherine

William and Catherine brought their son home today, and it was hard not to think of the moment Diana and Charles left the same hospital with William 31 years ago.  How closely is Catherine following in Diana's footsteps?  CNN's Randi Kaye takes a closer look.

    I like queen elizabeth , not a big fan of her immediate family, but respect them as the queen is head of state, we like the freedom and liberty in this country with goes with her rule, I very much liked DIANNE, the poor girl never had a chance with that man she was married to, while he is better now , i think for many years he really wasn,t normal , I really like kate and william and their young son, i hope that the queen will pass acendtion to the throne to william, kate is a very large support to william and i am sure DIANNA would be too , dianna was a much better person than she was made out to be , we all have difficulty,s in life and the situation dianna was in ( not by choice ) would almost be unbareable , i can certainly see a woman haveing behaviourle problems with a man like she was married too, may she rest in the peace she so rightfully deserved,

    Poor Princess Diana's eating disorder and unnecessary inferiority complex were tragic hindrances. Diana's sage advice to William, shortly before her unfortunate divorce, to find and nurture a true love may be a secret key to the success of the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

    Your guest (a former friend of Diana, Princess of Wales) is vey off the mark with her comments in her speculation of how Diana would be now at age 52 with The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge ... while she loved her boys very much, she also suffered from certain behavioral problems that affected her social & family relationships. To speculate that Diana would be in a supportive role to the new royal superstars is a stretch. She had difficult relationships with just about everyone. Those are facts. While Diana had many positive attributes & much to her credit & I continue to be an avid supporter of her memory, lets be realistic, she had problems in all her relationships. Your guest is blowing a lot of hot air – it sounded nice in her English accent.

      I agree; on the day of the wedding April 29th, 2011, Andrew Morton stated on CNN's coverage that he did not believe that Diana would be friends with Catherine. He made mention of all her failed relationships; stating it would have been difficult for her to accept that she was no longer the fashion queen, even with turning over a new leaf by selling the evening wear, or that she would no longer be the only person in her son's life, she was still far too dependent on William. I think if Diana had lived, over time her emotional struggles would have been more and more profound. Robert Lacey the author said it would be interesting to read the first editions which were pulled that morning and were solidly calling Diana the Playgirl Princess, when she died all that changed; and was replaced with St. Diana who could do no wrong.
