Royal sons beg British TV not to run photos

William & HarryA British television channel has plans to produce a documentary about the death of Princess Diana. Supposedly, the producers have obtained exclusive photos of the crash that ended Diana's life in 1997. Diana's sons, William and Harry have expressed concern and requested that the photos not be included in the final production.

According to producers the photos contain no explicit or damaging images of Diana and are essential to the production, although they haven't said why.

Considering that the accident took place ten years ago, I can't think of any new information that would make this special interesting. Diana's death was a tragedy, that's certain, but is there really any value in the continuing discussion of what caused it.? Other than exploitation, I can't think of any reason.

What the young royals fail to understand is that without the photos, there is no special. The airing of the documentary is simply an excuse to get people to gawk at photos that ultimately won't change anyone's opinion of what happen and certainly won't change the outcome.

What I really don't understand is why William and Harry don't just seize the photos and throw the producer in the dungeon. Isn't their Grandma the Queen?

I wish the monarch could actually arrest people these days, heck maybe a public hanging is in order - after all watching the dying moments of people is just great entertainment, why not have a special "The Death of Channel 4 Producers" we could throw DVDs of this special and articles about "Big Brother"?

I for one would watch!
