Prince Harry Breaks Silence in 'Drive for Truth' Amid Princess Diana Investigation | 22 Words

A new documentary exploring one of Princess Diana's most controversial interviews aired earlier this month and, as a result, an inquiry into the incident has been launched.

But now, amid the rumors and speculation, her youngest son, Prince Harry, has finally addressed the difficult situation.

This can't be an easy time for the young royal.

Prince Harry, who has long been one of the favorite members of the monarchy, has made his opinions about his mother's treatment in news and media quite clear.

Diana's ordeal with the press is believed to be one of the reasons he and his wife, Meghan Markle, stepped down from their royal duties...

So, of course, the investigation into the ethics behind one of her most controversial moments with the industry is bound to hit close to home.

Now, Diana's introduction into the royal family was somewhat of a whirlwind.

After meeting only a handful of times, Prince Charles proposed to a young Diana Spencer, who was a whole twelve years his junior, in 1981.

The pair announced their engagement almost straight away...

But, during the broadcast, many remember Charles being oddly reluctant to say he was in love with Diana.

Who remembers his horrendously awkward response to a question about being in love?

During their first televised interview following their engagement, the couple are asked if they are in love, to which Diana responds with a polite "of course", but Charles ponders, "whatever love means." What were you thinking, Charles?

Anyway, regardless of the tension between the pair, they married on July 29th 1981.

The lavish ceremony was held at St. Paul's Cathedral and was watched by over 750 million people around the world.

Soon after, they welcomed a baby into the world.

The couple announced their pregnancy just 4 months after tying the knot, and, on June 21st of 1982, they welcomed Prince William into the world.

And not long after that, Diana fell pregnant again...

Prince Harry was born on 15th September 1984.

Diana threw herself into motherhood.

She had strong ideas about how she wanted her children to be raised, often giving them more freedom than traditional royal heirs.

She was also known for her extensive charity work.

Unlike the other members of the royal family, Diana was determined to use her platform to better the world and dedicated her life to many noble causes, including the land mine crisis.

She made world news when she shook hands with and embraced an AIDS sufferer.

Unlike the typical royal wife, Diana was dead set on doing work for herself and for the betterment of the world, earning her the nickname "The People's Princess."

This independence was likely a factor in the breakdown of her marriage with Charles.

On top of Diana's refusal to sacrifice her identity for the sake of her title, Charles was also in a long-standing affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, even wearing cufflinks she bought him on his honeymoon with Diana.

And the dynamic between Diana and the rest of the royal family was certainly no easier.

Rumors about Queen Elizabeth's distaste for Diana had been rife for years, with sources claiming that she was even "jealous" of the attention Diana drew from the rest of the family.

Allegedly, the Queen wasn't her biggest fan...

And she apparently made no effort to make Diana feel welcome in the family. Andrew Morton, who collaborated with the Princess on the 1992 Diana: Her True Story wrote that “behind the public smiles and the glamorous image was a lonely and unhappy young woman" and that she was seen “as an outsider by the Queen."

So, many weren't surprised when the couple officially separated in 1992.

Their divorce was finalized in 1996, though Diana continued with her public appearances and charity work right up until her tragic death in 1997.

But now, over twenty years later...

More unsavory details surrounding her experience in the monarchy continue to emerge.

As stated earlier, a brand new documentary that delves into Diana's unhappy time in the family aired earlier this month.

According to ITV, The Diana Interview: Revenge of a Princess tells the inside story of Princess Diana's 1995 interview with Martin Bashir that not only shocked the U.K but threatened the future of the monarchy and of the BBC.

Details surrounding the ethics of Bashir's steps to securing the interview have been sketchy...

Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, said that he was shown "false bank statements" by Bashir and that these statements were used to help the reporter gain access to the princess.

A formal investigation is now underway...

And Prince William, second in line to the throne, said: "The independent investigation is a step in the right direction. It should help establish the truth behind the actions that led to the Panorama interview and subsequent decisions taken by those in the BBC at the time."

However, Prince Harry took a little longer to speak out.

In the days following his brother's statement, Harry, who now lives in L.A with wife Meghan Markle, didn't comment or acknowledge the investigation.

Now, this isn't too out of the ordinary for the royal...

Who stepped down from his official royal duties mere months ago.

He and Meghan have been focusing on raising their son, Archie...

As well as working on charities and organizations "close to their hearts."

But, of course, this doesn't mean that Harry won't have been following the investigation...

And now, a source close to the Prince has revealed what he really thinks of the situation.

Apparently, Harry is on the same page as his brother.

Harry is getting regular updates and is aware of everything that is happening," a source close to Harry said, reports The Telegraph.

The source continued:

“You do not need a public statement to imagine how he is feeling privately, people know how much his mother means to him. He has bravely spoken out in the past about loss and grief, and the immense impact it has had on him." The investigation continues.
