This, he said he realised after an inquiry investigating Diana's death found out that indeed BBC fell below its standards with the interview.

Prince William strongly blasted BBC top bosses for overseeing a cover up instead of fairly laying blame on the rogue reporter, identified as Martin Bashir.

According to Prince William, the failings only meant that his mother died not knowing she had been a victim of such deception.

The Met Police had earlier decided against a criminal investigation but disclosed it will jump to work after assessing the new report on Princess Diana's death.

In a seperate statement, Prince Harry noted that his mother's life was taken because of the ripple effect of a culture of exploitation and unethical practices.

"Our mother lost her life because of this, and nothing has changed. By protecting her legacy, we protect everyone, and uphold the dignity with which she lived her life," Prince Harry said.

Briefly News understands BBC has written an apology to Princes William and Harry, as well as the Prince of Wales and Diana's brother Earl Spencer.

In the apology letter, the BBC accepted that Bashir made the claims "intending to play on the princess's fears, in order to arouse her interest in him, and without concern for the impact on those he maligned".

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have made headline news back-to-back since they stepped down from royal duties in 2020. Their most publicised interview was with celebrated media personality Oprah Winfrey where the couple shared their supposed disappointing times at the royal palace.

Harry, on his part, has also shown open criticism over how his father Prince Charles raised him, claiming that he endured genetic pain growing up.

According to him, one of the reasons for wanting out of the royal lifestyle was to 'break the cycle' so that his children do not endure the same struggle.
