The Duke of Cambridge Prince William has vehemently blamed toxic media practices for his mother Princess Diana's death.
Prince William specifically accused BBC for unprofessionalism during its interview with his late mother.
According to Prince William, the BBC interview with late Princess Diana fueled the late Princess' paranoia.
He also noted that the same interview also made the relationship between his late mum and father worse.
The Mirror UK reported that Prince William noted that his mother was not only failed by a rogue reporter but also the BBC bosses.
William noted that he was very saddened by the whole issue because his mother Princess Diana was not aware she was being deceived.
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.
While bashing BBC, Harry noted that such practices are yet to be shunned and have been widespread to date.
"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.
YEN.com.gh 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".
