Disclosing that he has spoken to a professional about his mental health, he describes how he only began to address his grief when he was 28 after feeling "on the verge of punching someone" and facing anxiety during royal engagements.

The Duke of Sussex has chosen not to speak publicly about the BBC inquiry into his late mother's 1995 Panorama interview, which has recently come under new scrutiny.

In response to recent tabloid reports that accuse the royal of not supporting his brother and protecting their late mother's legacy, the source claims that "Harry is getting regular updates and is aware of everything that is happening".

Earl Charles Spencer, Lady Diana's brother, has asked the BBC for a more thorough investigation into who knew about the fake documents, in addition to an apology for the alleged unethical actions Bashir took.

Prince Harry, William's younger brother who is now in California, has not publicly commented on the investigation.


"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", the person said.

What will the investigation look at?

It will also consider mocked-up bank statements detailing purported payments from the one of Spencer's former employees to members of the royal staff.

Spencer questioned the scope of the enquiry, saying Dyson should "be free to examine every aspect of this matter, from 1995 to today, as he sees fit".

However Diana's brother said he was "not at all satisfied with the parameters" set around the inquiry into the BBC Panorama interview.


It was "incorrect" to suggest it would not cover the BBC's investigations at the time as this was "explicitly part of the remit", she said.

The BBC's board of directors has approved the appointment of a retired senior judge to lead an independent investigation into the circumstances around the same.

The BBC's current director-general, Tim Davie, said the broadcaster commissioned the independent investigation "to get to the truth about these events".

The BBC announced a new investigation.

Nearly 23 million people tuned in to watch the Panorama programme 25 years ago.


In episode 6 of series 4, titled Terra Nullius - which deals with Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1983 tour of Australia - Adeane is shown speaking brusquely and insensitivity to the Princess, springing it on her that she has to be separated from Prince William, then still a baby, for two weeks. Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed were killed in a tragic auto crash in a Paris underpass on August 31, 1997, along with their French driver Henri Paul as they tried to outrun chasing photographers.
