Britain's Channel 4 defends airing Princess Diana tapes in documentary
Aug 02, 2017, 00:19
Featuring the footage in the documentary Diana: In Her Own Words has been strongly criticised by royal commentators and Rosa Monckton, one of Diana's closest friends, who said it was a "betrayal of her privacy".
The tapes reveal that when Diana confronted Prince Charles about his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, he responded coldly.
However, the broadcaster has been criticised for the documentary, which uses taped recordings from private voice coaching sessions Diana was given in 1992 - 1993. She's been dead 20 years. They were under the possession of Princess Diana's former butler Peter Burrell. Peter Settelen had subsequently initiated proceedings to recover them, but was struck to the will of the Spencer family ownership.
His searing criticism came after it emerged that Diana's brother Earl Spencer had tried to stop the Channel 4 documentary, which will be aired this Sunday, from going ahead.
Royal author Ingrid Seward told the paper she thought Diana's legacy was being "exploited".
Before the royal wedding, Diana and Charles had spent time only on 13 occasions. "I certainly don't think they should be broadcast", she told the newspaper.
It's tempting to think there isn't anything more to say about the life and death of Princess Diana.
"I should never have played with fire, but I did and I got very burnt".
She also confided that sex with Charles took place "once every three weeks" and apparently stopped completely about six or seven years before the conversations took place. "And he was the greatest fun I have ever had". Penny Junor, the royal biographer who has written studies of the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William and Prince Harry, condemned Channel 4's decision.
She spoke about her ambitions in life and that she was never interested in academics.
Princess Diana's ballet teacher, Anne Allan, also opened up about how Diana felt about Charles being disloyal to her.
On the early days of their romance: "He chatted me up".
"I was brought up in the sense, when you got engaged with someone, you loved them", she said. It will upset her children, her ex-husband, Camilla, the Queen and Diana would simply not want this at all.
"I thought, 'Well, bugger it, I do mind sitting there while you do your work, ' and I said that and it sort of lit up something in him, that someone answered back". He was all over me for the rest of the evening. I kept thinking it followed a pattern.
