Did Princess Diana drive Britain crazy, or was the country like that? Read and listen to it ???? “Baladi”

In the new documentary “The Princess” about Diana, Princess of Wales, we see how the deceased member of the royal family drives fast after exercising at a private gym.

It happened somewhere in the 90’s, and paparazzi climbed on each other’s shoulders to take a picture of her, then moved the camera to the studio of the BBC’s Kellori Silk. “She’s rich enough to have her own gym,” exclaims one participant. “In my two-bedroom apartment in the Beckham area, I put my exercise bike in the living room,” Kellori Silk replied. Thousands of pounds a year and live in a house as big as hair can not have her own gym. ”

The lady almost exploded with rage. Kellory Silk says, [ديانا] She likes to be with people, “but the woman is never convinced by this and replies:” Damn, she likes to be noticed. “

“The Princess” is the latest episode of the Diana Memorial Industrial Complex, and it’s a collection of the latest movies, TV series and documentaries, most notably “The Crown” and “Spencer” – which tells a story that everyone for sure know.

Republican or royal, old or young, you will now be able to remember the intimate details of Diana’s life from your head. Wait a minute and maybe your pet cat can do that too, but the new approach to “Princess” is based solely on archival material, rather than guest speakers or notes, there are news reports, TV clips and unprofessional video clips.

All in all, the film is a sobering reminder that Diana was a woman who would never allow us to live away from the cameras.

As a time capsule of a life spent like this, ‘The Princess’ does not offer many surprising things, but its approach helps place Diana in the context of the era in which she lived and explores how she was treated the way she was. , reflecting the nervousness of the British public. Britain as it was, is and always will be. Perhaps, or to be more precise, it is a depiction of a very British kind of madness.

The public treats Diana as the healing ointment for a nation wounded under Thatcher. Over time, the public decides that she is a hero, a madman, a witch, and with her death she is considered a saint. It was the strange extremes that motivated the making of the film, at least in part.

“I strongly opposed the idea,” says producer Simon Chen. “Does the world need another Diana documentary? We knew we probably wouldn’t make any new discoveries about her, but we could do something new in the way we tell the story.”

The “archive-only” approach allows the audience to project their own retrospective, knowledge, prejudices and load onto the story. “

Director Ed Perkins adds, “It’s true that this is a movie about Diana, but it’s also about celebrity culture and the culture we live in. There are clear parallels to the way we are obsessed with Diana and her life. voyeuristic living and the way we interact with celebrity culture today.I also think it’s easy To tell Diana’s story through the lens of the tabloid press, or the intrusion of the press, is clearly part of that story, but maybe is the hardest question he says. [كل ذلك] About us, and our role in what happened.

The point of this film is not to blame, but to try to criticize yourself and be honest about ourselves. “

Since I’m a stunned Millennium who is naturally greedy for content about Diana’s story, such as wanting to feast on the crumbs left in a bag of crispy fries, I was surprised to find that I did not for Diana on the screen did not want to see. in The Princess.

Throughout the film, my focus was on the people in the film who look like me, who liked to stare at one of the most famous women in recent history, and in any case, few of them seemed to really like her. have, and rather seemed or be constantly suspicious of her, Or they regard it as a mirror that reflects all their personal resentment and unrelated resentment.

When we think of the public hysteria associated with Diana, we tend to think of her funeral or the mourning spectators throwing roses at the palace gates and wetting their coats of the British flag with tears.

I have never made harsh judgments about this outpouring of sadness. Beautiful, charismatic, well-mannered by all means, Diana was a perfect match for people of all races, and at the heart of it all was also a 36-year-old mother of two young children killed in tragic circumstances.

When we put all these elements together, it is not surprising that the country has apparently been hit by a devastating disturbance.

But “The Princess” points out that a different kind of madness, and not something that is in any way justifiable, has struck the British public earlier.

It was madness rooted in sad anger for Diana and her choices, choices that were sometimes her own, sometimes the creation of the tabloids. There is clearly sexism and envy too.

But Diana also broke a number of unspoken social conventions, the same qualities that made her so beloved, honesty, empathy and uncontrolled cunning, also turned her into a problem.

Audiences treat Diana as the healing ointment for a nation wounded under Thatcher (Altitude movies)

It appears even more prominently in the film in clips of the Kilroy talk show hosted by an unassuming ex-MP in a decor that looks like elegant waiting rooms in dental clinics, and the most memorable thing about the show was the forced audience , where individuals are crammed into a confined space, such as cutlery used to hold microscopic samples.

In “The Princess” we see how the program’s guests accuse Diana of dishonoring the royal family. Sociologist and author Lady Colin Campbell is highly critical of her relationship, comparing her and Charles to seeing which of the two was more heterosexual, and even when Diana is spoken of with respect, there is a manic, unrealistic tone. An Australian woman exclaims: “Do you think we do not like our prince, princess and queen? They are respected across the country and around the world.”

However, it was not just the audience in the studio of Kilroy’s performance. At another show, someone assumed that Diana would have “great difficulty” in finding a new husband “because she was so angry with Charles” and “too demanding”. while another man was angry with Diana who allegedly attempted suicide and claimed he “has never seen any scars in any of her photos”, and a woman called a radio program to express her concern about Diana’s upbringing of William and Harry, and insisted that she “teach them how to vomit so they don’t have to do things they don’t want to do.” You will teach her how to hit the ground with their feet in anger. You will teach them to lie, and you will teach them how to manipulate their friends so that the world will only hear their version of the story. ”

Looking quickly at each other all these clips sounded grotesque and also seemed like an illustration of the character of a native living in central England. I do not know where this petty, miserable, harsh anger comes from. They are the voyeurs, the people who tweet offensive memes about Owen Jones or who fell in love with Adele until she became so rich and skinny.

Tact, respect and image are far more important to these people than one’s spiritual qualities, and it may all be the product of the caste system that continues to inspire generations with contempt, hypocrisy and “paranoia”, but one thing is clear and that it type of discourse that preceded social media, So we can not blame Twitter.

The “Princess” proves that it existed long before the “Social Media” and its applications, and was even present in us, and for some reason it gets worse when we talk about the royal family.

One of the worst ironies of “The Princess” is that no matter how much we currently accept the fact that Diana was treated horribly by her in-laws and the tabloid press, it turns out we did not learn our lesson.

Meghan Markle’s spectrum hovers over most of the film’s footage with incredible similarities between the way Diana is spoken and written and the constant press coverage to which Markle is subjected, and you can not help but wonder if the number of people making hateful tweets did not send about Harry when he left the royal family … They really mourned over his mother two decades ago, maybe they were the same people who were desperately trying to hold his hand as he walked behind Diana’s coffin.

Director Perkins notes: “You can easily say we never learned when Harry and Meghan left [العائلة الملكية] The audience immediately split into two groups and the matter degenerated into an entertainment relationship, and we all watched the duo meet with Oprah Winfrey.

During the interview, you forget that you are watching a family go through a very difficult time. I think it’s possible that we learned a few lessons, but there are also lessons that we all learned but quickly forgot. “
