The broadcaster is enduring a backlash regarding its plans to air recordings made by the Princess of Wales in sessions with her former vocal coach Peter Settelen.
Channel 4 in the United Kingdom has defended itself against accusations of exploitation and insensitivity over its decision to broadcast video recordings of Diana, Princess of Wales. "He was all over me like a bad rash", she recounted. She said: "I don't know what you should do.' And that was it".
She once sought comfort from the Queen, "So I went to the top lady and said: 'I don't know what I should do.' She said: 'I don't know what you should do.' And that was it. And that was help".
Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, has reportedly reached out to Channel 4 and asked them not to air the recordings due to the pain it will cause Princes William and Harry. "Peter was eventually persuaded that he should allow the public to see and hear exactly what Diana had to say, rather than have her message spun by others who would frankly prefer to silence her voice entirely".
Royal biographer Penny Junor has also slammed it. It is absolutely disgusting'.
"We know a huge amount about her already. We have never let her rest in peace".
Channel 4 claimed the video tapes, made in the early '90s, are an "important historical source".
She told The Telegraph that the documentary was "another way of exploiting Diana" and that it was not what either Prince Charles or his children would have wanted.
The tribute also includes a case of cassette tapes, featuring albums by artists such as George Michael, Diana Ross and Elton John, who famously sang at her funeral.
The moments that left the monarchy red faced, from Prince George, Prince Harry and little Princess Charlotte. She said that when she confronted Charles about his relationship with Camilla, the prince retorted that he refused to be the first Prince of Wales without a mistress.
The documentary is also worrying Buckingham Palace because of possible consequences, especially on the part of Diana's sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
The footage is part of a new documentary produced by the network to mark the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death in a vehicle crash in Paris.
And Allan, who taught the Princess dance beginning in 1981 after her marriage, said Diana confided in her, saying Charles' affair with Camilla made her feel "very sad, devastated" and that she "wasn't enough".
Ingrid Seward, author of "Diana: The Last Words", said: "This is using Diana to make money and that is what killed her in the end".
A batch of some 20 videos had been held by Scotland Yard after being seized in a January 2001 raid on ex-royal butler Paul Burrell's home.
Extracts of the recordings were circulated in the U.S.in 2004 yet they have never been screened in Britain.
