Diana, Lady Mosley (17 June 1910 – 11 August 2003), born Diana Freeman-Mitford and usually known as Diana Mitford, was one of Britain's noted Mitford sisters.
A cut down version of a fascinating interview of Lady Diana Mosley who appeared on 'Good Afternoon' – conducted by respected journalist Mavis Nicholson.
Lady Diana Mosley, one of the famous Mitford sisters and a glamorous 1930's socialite who scandalously abandoned her husband, embraced fascism and married Sir Oswald Mosley, leader of the British Union of Fascists, died in Paris on Monday, her family said. She was 93.
Diana was considered one of the greatest beauties of her time, and certainly of British society.
The death of Diana Mosley brings to an end one of the most curious questions of British upper-class etiquette: how does one deal socially with an unrepentant Nazi?
Posthumous speculation about Diana has been decidedly more sympathetic and generous than it is towards her sister, Unity.
This is a fascinating interview with Diana Mosley (nee Mitford; the sister of Unity Mitford) who was married to Oswald Mosley, the founder of the British Union of Fascists. Interestingly enough, the Mosley's were close acquaintances of both Adolf Hitler and Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. It touches on the big "H" in the first few minutes.
If you could imagine a posher, more clipped aristocratic British accent than Diana's...
The third of the Mitford sisters, she married fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley and counted Hitler as a friend.
