A number of tales about Diana's mischievous pranks have come to light,...

The 58-year-old Earl Spencer stated in a MailOnline article that what Mr. Bashir told him was “shocking” and that he had

“told me a series of tales so extraordinary that, as soon as he left, I called Panorama’s executive producer, who confirmed it was all true and that I could trust Mr. Bashir.”

“Over the course of the next three weeks, I feel as though I was groomed. I was shown forged bank statements and informed of shady transactions, espionage, and horrifying deception. But all along, I was the one being duped so that Mr. Bashir could use me to contact my deceased sister.

At the time, he believed his sister to be “extremely vulnerable,” as some of her previously-kept secrets had begun to leak to the media.

On September 19, 1995, Earl Spencer recalled meeting Mr. Bashir and being surprised by “a number of discrepancies” between what he told Diana and what he had previously told him.

He said:

“When we parted that afternoon, I assumed I’d never hear anything about Mr Bashir again.

“When the BBC trumpeted that they had secured their Panorama interview with my sister, a few weeks later, it was the first I knew that anything had resulted from that troubling meeting.”

“While Mr Bashir is, of course, held up for his unspeakable conduct, serious questions remain about others at the BBC. First, who else at the BBC knew of Mr Bashir’s work at the time?

“In a story of such unique importance as this, it is reasonable to believe that the chain of command must have gone very high indeed – beyond Panorama to the upper reaches of the BBC.”
