To think that she should keep her stupid conspiracy theories to herself FFS

My 13 year old son has just come in and said
'Princess Diana was murdered because she had an affair with an arab and cheated all the way through the marriage'
I'm fucking furious this is from one one my 'friends', using the term loosley.
He is convinced this is true and has put a shitter on the wedding now, as he wouldn't stop bleating on about it and I had to scream 'shut up' at him.
He's stomped off upstairs now

i doubt him throwing a tantrum and you screaming at him will actually spoil the wedding itself
why not jsut say that is what many people believe but it has never been proven
i think you are getting a little too involved and taking it a little too personally

Calm down Love. Have a little drinky (or 5) and then maybe apologise to your DS for your overreaction. And yes, you have overracted.
Do you think your friend deliberately filled your son's head with these theories to piss you off? Genius is they did coz it worked beautifully.

Some people are like that. I remember MIL sitting there bleating on and on about how Princess Di was actually a horrible person so Will/Harry's speech at the service marking the ten years since her death was meaningless and she wasn't "the best mother ever" or whatever it was they actually said.
I am in no way a big fan of the royal family at all and the Diana obsession was way before my time, but it annoyed me when MIL said that (pregnancy hormones most likely culprit) as obviously she was the best mum ever to them. She was their mum. Be a bit off if they said they didn't miss her at all and she was actually not all that great.
