WASP Ann Coulter, an avowed Anglophile, hates Princess Diana and has done so for over two decades. Why? Because Diana was everything Ann is not.
Surprisingly, Ann and Diana shared much in common. Both moved in elite circles; both suffered from insecurity and eating disorders; and both were, in different degrees, narcissists.
Where they differed is that Diana was open about her faults, whereas Ann “despised weakness of any kind.” Diana gave selfless love, whereas Ann was, and remains, a selfish opportunist.
People saw the courage and compassion shine through Diana’s faults; they see the flaws and dysfunctions beneath Ann’s professed virtues.
