PRINCESS DIANA: Royal expert Anita Atkinson reacts to the damning report into how Martin Bashir secured an interview with the people’s Princess
A damning report has revealed how Martin Bashir used lies and deceit to secure his famous Panorama interview with Princess Diana.
Prince William has said that he believes the BBC's failures surrounding Martin Bashir's 1995 Panorama interview with his mother Princess Diana made his family's lives worse.
His words come after an inquiry revealed that Bashir "deceived and induced" Diana's brother Earl Spencer to secure the interview using fake bank statements, which allegedly led Diana to believe that she was being spied on.
Prince Harry has also been critical of the media following the inquiry saying: "Our mother lost her life because of this, and nothing has changed."
Royal Expert Anita Atkinson told us that her views on the Princess were affected because of the infamous interview, and that she is shocked at the latest revelations.
These most recent events are just the latest in what has been a turbulent year for the Royal Family. Over in the United States Prince Harry has been sharing his challenges with his mental health as part of a documentary, revealing that he felt totally neglected by his family when he was struggling.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that he is ‘concerned’ at what the inquiry into the BBC found, adding that he hopes the broadcaster "will be taking every possible step to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again”.
