Diana, who divorced Prince Charles and was killed in a 1997 Paris car crash, said on the tapes she never believed she would be queen.

"(Prince Charles) said, 'You do realize that one day you will be queen?' and a voice said to me inside, 'You won't be queen but you'll have a tough role,'" Diana said.

The princess also talked of her suicide attempts.

"I threw myself down the stairs when I was four months pregnant with William, trying to get my husband's attention to listen to me," she said. "But he just said, 'You're crying wolf.'"
