Prince William Won’t Get an Investigation of Princess Diana’s 'Panorama' Interview After All

Princess Diana’s 1995 Panorama interview is gut-wrenching to watch for just about all members of the royal family. But for Prince William, who was just 13 years old at the time, the interview was particularly devastating as he watched his mother detail her marital problems with Prince Charles — as well as her struggle with bulimia and her attempts at self-harm — to the BBC’s Martin Bashir. In the years since there’s been a reason to believe that Diana and her brother might have been deceived in an effort to make this interview happen. Because of this, William himself has come out in support of a thorough investigation of the BBC. As of today, however, the criminal investigation has suddenly been dropped.
