British TV to air Diana's recordings on her failed marriage

WANGANUI CHRONICLE | Opinion  TV Review Diana Our Mother Her Life and Legacy  29 Jul 2017 10:00pm 3 minutes to read

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. Except, here's the thing: I won't watch it.

The late Princess Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, is pleading with United Kingdom broadcaster Channel 4 to not air tapes of private conversations recorded by Peter Settelen, her public speaking coach.

They show the late Princess rehearsing her speaking voice and revealing stunning admissions about her marriage and public life which paved the way for her famous Panorama interview with Martin Bashir in 1995.

It has been publicly condemned by Diana's close friend Rosa Monckton, who has said: "I think it's completely inappropriate that they are being shown publicly".

Among the possessions to be featured in the display are a leather photo frame with pictures of family and friends, a burgundy leather briefcase, and her school "tuck box", which she used to keep candies and other treats in while she was away at boarding school, which has the name "D Spencer" written on it. I'm coming to you, what do I do?' And she said 'I don't know what you should do, ' " Diana said.

"Friends" including ex-Palace press officer Dickie Arbiter and pro-Charles biographer Penny Junor have labelled the film "immoral".

"She loved Charles, yes, but Charles loved another woman", Allan said.

Channel 4 has defended and justified their use of the tapes in the documentary, saying they are a valid public document.

"Everybody knew about the bulimia in the family".

As well as describing the 180-minute edit as a demonstration of Diana's "backbone of steel", Jephson says: "What you get beautifully through those tapes is her sense of spontaneity and fun". "Peter was eventually persuaded that he should allow the public to see and hear exactly what Diana had to say, rather than have her message spun by others who would frankly prefer to silence her voice entirely". Because there are decades' worth of tabloid reports; over 100 million Google search results; and even another set of tapes, which Diana allegedly (and willingly) recorded with journalist Andrew Morton, that deep dive into all of the above.

The post Queen Told Princess Diana "Charles Is Hopeless" After He Demands A Mistress! appeared first on Radar Online. Of course it was troubled-they got divorced.

After the polo match, Charles asked Diana to visit the Buckingham Palace but she answered back. Imagine what kind of state Diana was in-recently separated, publicly humiliated, hounded by paparazzi. Unearthing them, to me, seems nearly cruel.

Maybe he's right. Maybe, like a twisted King Midas, everything Diana touches is bound to become public fodder.

"We know we like anniversaries - in a way, we want to be celebrating the legacy she's left".
