People say a picture is worth a thousand words…well, these words are worth around twenty-thousand dollars!
Newly released letters from Princess Diana during the early years of her marriage are going up for auction in Colchester, UK on June 21, and they're expected to sell for 20K!
In the letters, which were put up for sale by retired school principal Margaret Hodge (the recipient), newly married Diana writes about her "heavenly honeymoon," her "joy of becoming a mother," and pride over her sons William and Harry.
Interestingly, the letters seem to paint a picture of bliss in Diana's life, whereas in reality she experienced a troubled marriage, and was "desperately unhappy" according to claims she made in later years.
Here's what royal specialist James Grinter had to say about the letters:
"This is a charming collection of personal letters and cards written by Diana to Mrs Hodge after they worked together at the Young England kindergarten and went on to become close friends."
"The Princess' letters give a fascinating glimpse into her life in the early years of her marriage to Prince Charles and we are expecting a lot of interest from collectors from around the world."
Guess we'll see how much Diana's letters end up selling for later this month!
