LONDON (Reuters) - A collection of handwritten notes by the late Princess Diana, one of which reveals that her younger son Prince Harry was constantly in trouble at school, went under the hammer on Thursday, selling for well above target prices.

(伦敦-路透社)——已故王妃戴安娜的一组亲笔书信中,其中有一封显示她的小儿子哈里王子在学校“时常惹麻烦”,这封信于星期四被拍卖,成交价远高于定价。

The six notes, sold at Cheffins auction house in Cambridge, were written to Cyril Dickman who served as chief steward of Buckingham Palace for over 50 years.

戴安娜王妃寄给时任皇家管家的西里尔.迪克曼的6封书信在英国剑桥切芬斯古董拍卖行拍卖。迪克曼50多年前在白金汉宫当管家。

Diana’s sons Princes William and Harry feature prominently.

信中主要讲的戴安娜的两个儿子威廉和哈里。

One message dated Sept. 20, 1984, five days after Harry’s birth, reads: "William adores his little brother and spends the entire time swamping Harry with an endless supply of hugs and kisses, hardly letting the parents near!..."

1984年9月20日——哈里王子出生后五天——的一封信是这样写的:“威廉非常喜欢他的弟弟,一整天都和他在一起,不停的抱他亲他,简直不让父母靠近!”

"The reaction to one tiny person’s birth has totally overwhelmed us and I can hardly breathe for the mass of flowers that are arriving here!"

“这么一个小人儿的出生,大家的反应彻底的把我们淹没了,大家送来么多鲜花,我几乎无法呼吸了。”

That note sold for 3,200 pounds ($3,950), comfortably exceeding its estimate of 400 to 600 pounds.

那封信最终卖出了3200英镑(3950美元),大大超出了最初预估的400到600英镑。

Another, from October 1992, says how both young princes "are well and enjoying boarding school a lot, although Harry is constantly in trouble!". It fetched 2,400 pounds, against an estimate of 600 to 900 pounds.

在另一封1992年10月的信中,她说两位小王子“都非常喜欢、享受上学的时光,尽管哈里王子总是惹麻烦。”它的成交价也达到了2400英镑,起初预测为600到900英镑。

Other items auctioned by Dickman’s family included letters, cards and photographs from other members of the royal family, including Prince Charles, Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

迪克曼一家拍卖的其他物品还包括信件、卡片和皇室其他成员如查尔斯王子、玛格丽特公主、伊丽莎白女王和菲利普亲王的照片等。
