Her marriage broke up after eight years (1990) with a divorce. She ended her relationship with her estranged husband after she found him cheating her with actress Joely Richardson.
However, Diana stopped her marital relation with Archie Stirling on good terms. Talking about the broken relationship with ex-husband Archie Stirling in 2016, Diana said-
“I was propositioned recently, much to my surprise, and I didn’t know what to do with it. I mean them. I mean him. I never get lonely, even as a child I didn’t.”
“Never. If you have a good inner life you don’t get lonely. I’ve got a good imagination. I don’t miss romance. I’m so grateful not to have to go there any more. Does that sound awful? As to who propositioned me, I’m going no further. I don’t want to dig a big hole for myself.”
Unlike Diana Rigg, her daughter Rachael Stirling has been enjoying a blissful married life. She tied the knot with musician Guy Garvey on June 3, 2016, in a secret ceremony in Manchester. Rachael and her husband Guy Garvey have a son named Jack Stirling Garvey, who was born in April 2017.
