What did BBC do to Diana?

“By showing Earl Spencer the fake statements and informing him of their contents,” the report wrote, “Mr. Bashir deceived and induced him to arrange a meeting with Princess Diana. By gaining access to Princess Diana in this way, Mr. Bashir was able to persuade her to agree to give the interview.” 21 mei 2021

UK journalist Martin Bashir has apologized to Prince William and Prince Harry after a former British Supreme Court judge handed down a report Thursday condemning Bashir and the BBC for a famous 1995 interview with Princess Diana in which she openly spoke about the stresses of being a royal.

After a six-month investigation, Bashir, the report found, used fake documents and false pretenses to score the interview with Diana.
The report said the BBC’s internal investigation that followed a year later was “woefully ineffective.”

Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer says he draws a line between the Panorama interview and his sister’s death in Paris. Her jaw-dropping revelations had been watched the world over.
 
Panorama reporter Martin Bashir won numerous awards for his 1995 scoop, which the BBC has started to return. But he had secured the interview after faking bank statements to suggest royal insiders were betraying Diana to the tabloids. According to the inquiry report when questions were raised, the BBC top brass believed Mr Bashir’s lies in an internal investigation damned today as “woefully inadequate”.

19 Meet The Woman Who Hired Princess Diana As A Nanny Before She Married Charles

19 mei 2017

Before she became the People’s Princess, Diana worked as a nanny. Her salary was $5 an hour. Back in 1980, Mary Robertson was an American businesswoman living in London and she needed a nanny for her toddler son, Patrick. She called a local agency and 18-year-old Diana showed up for an interview. Mary had no idea the shy and quiet Diana was actually Lady Diana Spencer, an aristocrat from one of England’s oldest families.
Princess Diana looks like a real life version of Cinderella. If Cinderella were to transform into a human, she would be princess Diana.
 
joyr36
Diana always showed that she had a genuine love for children.  If she had only married someone that truly loved her like she deserved to be loved, she may still be alive today.
The Official Andy Saenz
Wow, I’m surprised that they still kept in touch even after Diana married into British royalty! Princess Diana was such a wonderful, humble lady.
 
Joi Robb
It broke my heart when she said Diana would send letters that said “please visit” and that they weren’t taken seriously. I can relate to someone who is so lonely and constantly reaching out to old friends, nobody ever says yes. I find a kindred spirit in Diana. She just wanted some company.
 
Karen Imran
Diana was truly a genuine person. Nothing was fake or staged with our people’s Princess. She will never be replaced. .

Diana: The Inquest takes a remarkable look at the mysterious beginnings and proceedings of the British inquest into the deaths of Princess Diana, Dodi Al Fayed and their driver Henri Paul. Featuring statements from those most closely connected to the three people who died on that tragic night, and exclusive CCTV footage from cameras inside the Ritz Hotel where they spent some of their last hours, the film highlights the important questions that the inquest aimed to answer.

Were Dodi and Diana engaged? Was Diana pregnant? Was the white Fiat Uno also in the tunnel that night connected to the accident? And the most important question of all… Was Diana’s death planned and was the driver of the car somehow involved?

Director and Producer David Cohen said: “It really is both moving and eerie to see these jerky images of how three people – Diana, Dodi and Henri Paul – spent their last hours. The Coroner is clearly determined to make sure that after so many allegations of conspiracy, no one can say he did not allow the jury to look at all the facts”.

Diana: The Inquest provides the most comprehensive account there has ever been on television of how Diana spent her last day, and charts one of the most fascinating journeys in judicial history.
