Los Angeles: A personal letter
Letters written by The Princess Diana have been sold previously as well. Those letters have been sold for thousands of dollars. The letters included correspondence with close friends, discussing her marriage and her sons, William and Harry.
The letter up for auction now is handwritten to Erika a complete stranger offering her hope and encouragement in a difficult time.
The letter was written months before Princes Diana’s own divorce from Prince Charles. The letter is dated November 29, 1995.
The letter reflects the caring and kind side of the People’s Princess.
Offering some advice, The Princess wrote:
“I have received your letter and of course read it with concern and a wish to support you in any way I can.
“There is a great deal of pain inside you, hence the ‘block’ as you call it – that is a natural response to someone who has been through the troubles you’ve experienced.
Handwritten Letter to Erika
“Reading between the lines of your letter I feel a very special lady is struggling with a low self-esteem because of all the bruises you had to deal with, mentally and physically.
“I do know that it takes great courage to write as you did and with that honest and clarity the light will appear in your tunnel.
“I am thinking of you so much, hang on in there Erika.
“Lots of love from Diana x”
