Prince William is reportedly demanding answers over the BBC inquiry into Princess Diana's famous Panorama interview, while Prince Harry is furious about the interview.
The rift between Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, has recently been speculated about, but the two princes have finally found a meeting point — their mutual dislike of an interview featuring their mother.
According to reports, Prince Harry is demanding answers and is keen on getting the truth about the investigation into journalist Martin Bashir's alleged unethical tactics used in getting Princess Diana for an interview.
Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, is furious about the panorama interview and the shadiness of the details surrounding it. The royal brothers, who have had a strained relationship in recent times, are said to be bonding over the investigation.
Sources reveal that the brothers frequently speak via Zoom and WhatsApp. On his part, Prince William has come to terms with his brother's decision to disassociate himself from the royal family and relocate to the United States.
The recent reports of an inquiry into Bashir's unethical tactics used in getting Princess Diana for the Panorama interview were sparked by a recent outburst from Princess Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, who accused BBC of brainwashing his sister.
The interview caused a stir when released and led the royal family to ask Prince Charles and Princess Diana to divorce.
In an explosive letter, Spencer accused BBC of being dishonest and demanded an inquiry to be made over the unethical approach Bashir used in landing the 1995 interview with the late Princess of Wales.
The Earl claimed that Bashir showed him falsified bank statements to win an introduction to his sister. Spencer remarked that the BBC owed him, the public, and his late sister an apology for Bashir's deception.
Reacting to the allegations, BBC reportedly promised to get to the truth on how the 1995 panorama interview was secured. According to reports, a former Supreme Court judge Lord Dyson who retired in 2016, has been appointed to lead the inquiry.
BBC has said that they are committed to getting the truth of the events that transpired in 1995. Hearing about the investigation, Prince William called it a step in the right direction.
He said that he hoped the inquiry would help determine the truth behind the events that led to the interview. Princess Diana bared out her soul in the said interview, saying that there was a third party in her marriage to Prince Charles.
The interview caused a stir when released and led the royal family to ask Prince Charles and Princess Diana to divorce. Twenty-five years after, it continues to attract much controversy.
