Images of dying Diana anger her sons

Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

A BRITISH television channel was to broadcast photographs overnight taken at the scene of the crash that killed Princess Diana, in defiance of a plea from her sons not to show them.
The private secretary to Prince William and Prince Harry wrote to Channel 4 saying that they felt the images would be a "gross disrespect" to their mother's memory.

Royal sources indicated that the letter had been written at the instigation of Prince William, who wanted to "take a stand" against intrusions into his mother's dignity.

Politicians waded into the latest row to engulf Channel 4, with the Conservatives calling on the broadcaster to respect the princes' wishes.

But Channel 4 said that it would screen the photos, which show the dying princess receiving medical assistance.
