In a new 90 minute ITV special documentary about the Princess, Diana Macfarlane said, “Diana and I were both at West Heath together.

“She loved a love story. Life in the dormitory, you all had your bed and bedside table and hanging cupboards.

“Everyone loved having their photos on the bedside table. We all used to have pictures of the star we liked.

“I can tell you that at West Heath she had photos of Prince Charles around her bed.

“She had a crush on him for a long time from a schoolgirl.”
