Why Martin Bashir’s in the Naughty Corner

Looking for the latest royal family news? Get all the tea from Buckingham Palace with LK and Rossy!

Well first off, it’s not just Marty, but the whole BBC (gasp!) because appaz he tricked Diana in order to get that interview and then when the BBC found out they kept it under wraps because why let the truth get in the way of a good story? (as Rossy would say).

And to be clear, what Martin is accused of doing is dodgy. Diana’s brother reckons Martin forged documents and made up fake stories about a royal conspiracy against Diana so that she would feel more compelled to do the interview and speak out. Not cool at all.

And this is all a huge deal now because that interview changed the shape of the monarchy forever. For those who missed it the first time around, here’s some some of the bombshells Diana dropped.

She spoke about her bulimia (like, in the 90’s)

"It was a symptom of what was going on in my marriage. I was crying out for help, but giving the wrong signals, and people were using my bulimia as a coat on a hanger. They decided that was the problem: Diana was unstable," she said, adding: "The cause was the situation where my husband and I had to keep everything together because we didn't want to disappoint the public, and yet obviously there was a lot of anxiety going on within our four walls."

She spoke about self harm and postpartum depression (again … this is the 90’s)

"When no one listens to you, or you feel no one's listening to you, all sorts of things start to happen," she explained. "For instance, you have so much pain inside yourself that you try and hurt yourself on the outside because you want help, but it's the wrong help you're asking for. People see it as crying wolf or attention-seeking, and they think because you're in the media all the time you've got enough attention, inverted commas."

She admitted to working with Andrew Morton on that book!

"I was at the end of my tether. I was desperate," she explained. "I think I was so fed up with being seen as someone who was a basket-case because I am a very strong person and I know that causes complications in the system that I live in."

Her thoughts on being Queen one day

"I'd like to be a queen of people's hearts, in people's hearts, but I don't see myself being Queen of this country. I don't think many people will want me to be Queen," she said. "Actually, when I say many people I mean the establishment that I married into because they have decided that I'm a non-starter."
