Prince Harry has rubbished the claims to being against Prince William or the investigation into Princess Diana's controversial interview with Martin Bashir.

However, her brother Earl Spencer, has since claimed that false documents were used to secure the interview. "He has spoken out bravely in the past about loss and grief, and the enormous impact it has had on him".

Diana's Panorama interview with Martin Bashir was watched by more than 20 million viewers in Britain and became one of the defining moments of her failed marriage to Prince Charles.

In his statement, Prince William said of the new inquiry: "It should help establish the truth behind the actions that led to the Panorama interview and subsequent decisions taken by those in the BBC at the time". The same is true for his brother, Prince Harry.

"Sadly, some people are not just seeing this as a drive for truth, but also trying to use this as an opportunity to try to drive a wedge between the brothers". News saying "Harry is getting regular updates and is aware of everything that is happening".

The BBC announced Wednesday the immediate start of an investigation led by Lord Dyson, a former senior British judge, into the events surrounding the interview.

Although fans love the season, the same can not be said for Prince William and the royal family, who have a long history of disapproving of the series and its portrayal of their family. This will include looking at the mocked up bank statements, alleged payments to members of the royal household, and other issues raised by Earl Spencer.

Writing on Twitter, he added: "Lord Dyson must be free to examine every aspect of this matter, from 1995 to today, as he sees fit".

The BBC has insisted that investigation has a sufficiently broad scope.

According to the BBC, Bashir, its religious affairs editor, was signed earlier this year from work on coronavirus infection and quadruple heart bypass.

Those who knew Adeane, who died in 2015 aged 75, after serving as private secretary and treasurer to the Prince of Wales between 1979 and 1985, said the Netflix series was guilty of repeating cliches and inaccuracies about the way Princess Diana was treated in Royal circles.
