Prince William recounts his mother's tragic death

The author of a book about the British working class wants Prince Charles' future to be put to an election

Speaking on the 20th anniversary of the princess's death, Harvey disclosed her "knee-jerk reaction" to learning news of the vehicle crash was "a feeling of responsibility for having helped to turn her into an worldwide icon".

When Princess Diana died from injuries sustained in a vehicle crash in a Paris tunnel on August 31, 1997, the Aiken Standard stopped the presses.

"I chose William and Harry, but Charles did the rest", she said at the time.

One of Bulgaria's most popular newspapers, 24 Chasa, recently published five pages of stories and a large photo spread about the BBC's new documentary on Lady Diana and her sons. Arguably, probably a little bit too raw up until this point.

Harry, now 32, says he "shut down" for 10 years following his mother's death, unable to deal with it.

The eldest prince went on to study at St Andrews University in Scotland, while Harry chose to pursue an active career in the military after finishing at Eton.

But this year marks the first time that the brothers have spoken in such emotional depth.

"It shows a life inside a golden cage, imprisoned by traditions, and Diana's repeated attempts to break out of this golden cage", ORF's royal expert Lisbeth Bischoff said in a statement to AFP.

Some feel the royals have been happy to see Diana replaced in the limelight. Princess Diana shook the patient's hand without gloves - a landmark moment in the fight against AIDS.

Blame was heaped on the paparazzi ferociously pursuing the Princess and her lover Dodi Fayed, who also, along with the driver, died in the accident; and on the royals, who had exploited Diana as a lovely modern symbol - until she made it impossible for them to do so. She suffered from mental health problems at a time when few in public had much understanding of them, facing down bulimia, an eating disorder, and attempting self-harm.

"She smothered us with love, that's for sure", Harry said. He did this as he was also going through the same grieving process.

On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will meet representatives from some of the charities that their mother supported in the sunken garden at Kensington Palace.

Meanwhile, William praised his grandmother for the way she protected him and his younger brother from the press. That's what it's about for us: "trying to make a difference, and in making a difference, making her proud". The History Channel has Diana: 20 Years on.

In the documentary, Prince Harry described the role of the paparazzi as being one of the most hard things to address.

'But now the thought of that has gone completely and I think that's largely to due to her two wonderful children'.

The publication further notes that while there is a possibility that Camilla will become the Queen Consort, she may have a lot of difficulties gaining the public's trust. "This is not what people do!" she said.
