The Duke of Sussex praised the investigation that discovered former BBC journalist Martin Bashir deceptively got an interview with his mother, Princess Diana. The results, according to Harry, are a “first step towards justice” but he warns that harmful media practices continue to exist. He said: “Our mother was an incredible woman who dedicated her life to service. She was resilient, brave, and unquestionably honest.

Princes William and Harry delivered scathing remarks about the broadcaster’s activities.

The 36-year-old Duke of Sussex went on to say: “Our mother lost her life because of this, and nothing has changed.

“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.”

According to The Telegraph, the 127-page investigation determined that the journalist “deceived and induced” the late royal’s brother, Earl Charles Spencer, into agreeing to the interview for Panorama.

In his statement, William denounced the BBC’s conduct and stated:

“I would like to thank Lord Dyson and his team for the report…it is welcome that the BBC accepts Lord Dyson’s findings in full – which are extremely concerning – that BBC employees: lied and used fake documents to obtain the interview with my mother; made lurid and false claims about the Royal Family which played on her fears and fuelled paranoia; displayed woeful incompetence when investigating complaints and concerns about the programme; and were evasive in their reporting to the media and covered up what they knew from their internal investigation.

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.”

William also demanded that the program never be shown again, claiming that the BBC’s failures had let down not just his mother and family, but also the general public.

The investigation determined that the BBC covered up Mr Bashir’s “deceitful behaviour” in securing his terrible exclusive interview with Diana in 1995, and “fell short of high standards of integrity and transparency”

The BBC has written to the royal family to apologize for the circumstances surrounding Diana’s interview, in which she remarked, “Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded,” referring to Camilla Parker Bowles, whom Charles subsequently married.

According to royal sources, the Duke of Cambridge has “sad memories” of the bombshell interview, which was seen by 23 million Britons.

Lady Diana died in an automobile accident in Paris in August 1997, at the age of 36.
