Prince William and Prince Harry’s shared rage at the BBC and Martin Bashir might bring them back together.
According to a royal expert, Prince Harry and brother Prince William might resolve their “pointless feud” when they meet for the unveiling of their mother’s statue later this year after sharing “indignation” at the BBC’s investigation into her Panorama interview.
The siblings recently came out after a review of their mother, Princess Diana’s, iconic Panorama interview with Bashir discovered that the BBC “fell below its standards.”
The investigation determined that Bashir earned Princess Diana’s trust by fabricating fake documents.
The brothers’ relationship has worsened in recent years, with Harry recently admitting that they were on “different paths” They are expected to reconnect in July to unveil a statue of his late mother Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday, but they may deliver separate speeches since their relationship shows no signs of healing. They did, however, offer a sign of reconciliation last week when they released public remarks at the same time after the publication of Lord Dyson’s report.
According to royal analyst Robert Jobson, their recent mutual outrage at the BBC revelations might be the first step in reconciling their feud.
According to his comments on ABC’s HeirPod podcast: “This may – their indignation at the BBC – may bring them all together, because frankly the feuding, blaming, finger-pointing has to stop at some stage.
“I’d hope that any sons, whoever they are, royal or not, could have the decency to come together to pay tribute to their mother who they lost at a very early age, and pay their respects thoughtfully and with honour.
“I think to continue this feuding is both pointless and upsetting for everybody, I don’t think doing our Royal Family any good in its brand abroad, and at some stage they have got to sit down and talk, so why not sit down and talk after the unveiling of a statue of someone who did so much good for so many people around the world?”
An independent inquiry determined on Thursday that journalist Martin Bashir misled and tricked Diana into agreeing to the interview in which she revealed intimate details of her failed marriage to Prince Charles, the heir to the throne.
It also chastised the BBC for its “woefully ineffective” probe into Bashir’s activities a year later, as well as for covering up his crimes. Bashir duped Diana’s brother into believing her staff was spying on her and couldn’t be trusted.
“It is my view that the deceitful way the interview was obtained substantially influenced what my mother said. The interview was a major contribution to making my parents’ relationship worse and has since hurt countless others,” Prince William, the oldest of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s two sons, said in a scathing statement. “It brings indescribable sadness to know that the BBC’s failures contributed significantly to her fear, paranoia and isolation that I remember from those final years with her.”
“But what saddens me most, is that if the BBC had properly investigated the complaints and concerns first raised in 1995, my mother would have known that she had been deceived,” he added. “She was failed not just by a rogue reporter, but by leaders at the BBC who looked the other way rather than asking the tough questions”
In reaction to the news, Prince Harry, who now resides in California with his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and their baby, Archie, issued a statement.
“Our mother was an incredible woman who dedicated her life to service. She was resilient, brave, and unquestionably honest,” he said. “The ripple effect of a culture of exploitation and unethical practices ultimately took her life.”
“To those who have taken some form of accountability, thank you for owning it. That is the first step towards justice and truth. Yet what deeply concerns me is that practices like these—and even worse—are still widespread today,” Harry said. “Then and now, it’s bigger than one outlet, one network, or one publication.”
“Our mother lost her life because of this, and nothing has changed,” he said. “By protecting her legacy, we protect everyone, and uphold the dignity with which she lived her life. Let’s remember who she was and what she stood for.”
