It's been 20 years to Princess Diana's death, but the tragic stories of her life are still the talk of the worldwide media. This time through a disturbing transcript in which she herself reveals the haunting stories of her life.

The late Princess Diana might have been people's princess, but according to the secret tapes, her life was full of tragic incidents. There was a time when Diana threw herself down the stairs, even though she was pregnant with her first child, Prince Williams.

According to the Hollywood Life, “The late Princess Diana was truly the people’s princess, but she lived a very dark life that only began to surface after her death twenty years ago at the age of 36. One of the ways the world learned of the deep conflicts she had with her husband Princes Charles, her mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the Royal Family was through Andrew Morton‘s book Diana: Her True Story. Diana recorded her darkest memories for Andrew on the condition that her involvement with the book would be kept secret. Now the transcripts of her tapes, along with the book, are being republished and some of the stories, such as the one of Diana trying to hurt herself while pregnant with her first son Prince William, 34, are just devastating.”

According to the transcripts of secret tapes, Princess of Wales is quoted saying “When I was four months pregnant with William I threw myself downstairs, trying to get my husband’s attention, for him to listen to me, I had told Charles I felt so desperate and I was crying my eyes out. He said I was crying wolf. ‘I’m not going to listen,’ he said. ‘You’re always doing this to me. I’m going riding now.’ So I threw myself down the stairs. The Queen comes out, absolutely horrified, shaking — she was so frightened. I knew I wasn’t going to lose the baby (though I was) quite bruised around the stomach. When he came back, you know, it was just dismissal, total dismissal. He just carried on out of the door”
