Princess Diana Personal Owned Childhood Books

Lot 0051 Details

Description
These 3 books by Enid Blyton were owned and read by Diana, Princess of Wales as a child and gifted to a young girl and her family. Read to Cara many times as Diana used to love reading books and thought books were important in a persons life.
It comes with a letter which explains the relationship that took place in the late 1970's. The play sets and books are well looked after but do have wear and aging. These were gifted with a card from Diana in 1983, the card says "Surprise!!". Cara and her family were extremely poor and a special relationship was bonded between them and Diana.
Here is an excerpt from the letter that comes with the item:
"Many people may not realise, but even from her youth, Diana had a humanitarian's heart..."
Another statement in the letter:
"Everyone needs shoes was one of her sayings [referring to the Princess of Wales] and for the early years, Dians gave her own childhood shoes for Clara (Cara) to wear."
