William Blames: Diana Driven into “Paranoia and Isolation”
In an edifying report, British judge Lord Dyson outlined the immoral methods used by the BBC to obtain the famous interview with Princess Diana, which aired on November 20, 1995. After the publication of the results of the investigation, Prince William has held to react publicly by overwhelming the culprits.
Prince William speaks very rarely about his private life, but the hour was too serious this Friday, May 21 not to react. The report from Lord Dyson – a retired British judge who investigated the conditions under which Diana’s famous BBC Panorama interview was obtained – is damning. His investigation shows in particular that Martin Bashir, the journalist who convinced Princess Diana to sit down in front of him in an interview that has remained etched in the anal, used methods considered immoral to obtain this interview.
After the publication of the findings of the investigation, Prince William first reacted via a written statement. “In my opinion, the deceptive means used to get this interview influenced my mother’s words. The interview greatly contributed to the deterioration of relations between my parents and hurt countless people. It plunges me into a indescribable sadness to know that the failures of the BBC have greatly contributed to her fear, her paranoia, her isolation which I remember marked the last years I had with her “, explained the Duke of Cambridge.
“The interview should never be broadcast again”
Strong, hard-hitting words, never used before by Prince William, who also felt that his mother’s interview “no longer has any legitimacy and should no longer be broadcast”. After publishing his press release, Kate Middleton’s husband also spoke to the cameras to read the same text. Exiled in Los Angeles, Prince Harry also reacted, publishing a poignant text on the long-awaited results of this report. “Our mother was an incredible woman who dedicated her life to service. She was resilient, courageous, and undeniably honest. The ripple effect of this culture of exploitation and immoral practices led to her death,” he said.
Current BBC Managing Director Tim Davie apologized at length, saying, among other things: “If the BBC cannot turn back the clock after twenty-five years, we can offer our deepest and most unconditional apologies.”
