A new documentary on the Queen casts light on the pain and the grief she felt following Princess Diana's death. In the BBC report, which airs on Sunday, a senior aide goes on television to shed light on the dark days after the tragic accident when the royal family was accused of being out of step with public sentiment.
Peeking out from under the flashy red hat on the cover of Elizabeth Dewberry's new novel is the distinctly recognizable chin and mouth of Princess Diana — a woman who knew better than most what it meant to be `his lovely wife.`
As the country was hit by riots and a general strike, embarrassed officials blamed civil unrest for being unable to devote enough resources to the inquiry. But the lame excuse was greeted with dismay by Mohamed Al Fayed, whose son Dodi died alongside the Princess in a Paris car crash.
