Prince William welcomes investigation into Lady Diana interview

London - Prince William endorses the investigation announced by the British broadcaster BBC into a legendary interview with his mother Lady Diana 25 years ago. "The independent investigation is a step in the right direction," the Kensington Palace quoted the 38-year-old as the BBC reported on Thursday night.

The investigation, which he preliminarily welcomed, should help uncover the truth behind the actions that led to the interview and subsequent decisions by the then-BBC, it said.

Determined to find out the truth

The BBC had promised to find out "the truth" about the events surrounding the interview with Princess Diana. On Wednesday, the broadcaster announced that Lord Dyson, one of the country's longest-serving retired judges and former Supreme Court judge, had been appointed head of the investigation. BBC chief Tim Davie said: "The BBC is determined to find out the truth about these events and that is why we have commissioned an independent investigation."

Diana's brother Charles Spencer accuses journalist Martin Bashir of having obtained the interview with his sister at the time using unfair methods - such as falsified bank statements. These should have given the impression that people were paid to divulge information about Diana.

With the interview, Princess Diana, who died in an accident in 1997, shook the British monarchy 25 years ago. More than 200 million people worldwide watched on television as she spoke unusually openly about the infidelity of her husband Prince Charles and her own mental and health problems. The Queen was reportedly outraged that her daughter-in-law questioned Charles's aptitude for the throne. (APA, November 19, 2020)
