What is wrong with the film makers behind the new documentary, ‘Unlawful Killing,’ which includes a previously unseen paparazzi photo of the dying Diana’s face?
The graphic black and white photograph was taken close-up, just moments after the Mercedes carrying Princess Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, crashed in Paris on Aug. 31, 1997.It has never been published in Great Britain or in most of the world, and I am shocked by the crassness of the film producers, actor Keith Allen and Dodi’s father, Mohamed Fayed.
Why is it in any way beneficial for anyone to see a photograph of this tragic moment, especially 11 years later? It can only cause enormous pain to those who loved Diana, especially her two sons, Princes William and Harry.
A spokesman for the princes has refused to comment but according to the Daily Mail‘s insider source, “Diana’s sons would be sickened by the news. They rather hope it would be treated with the contempt it deserves.”
The princes will never publicly comment about their beloved mother, says the Daily Mail’s source , because they view the issue as “the most intensely personal and private aspect of their daily lives.”
I can absolutely understand why they would feel so protective of their loving, beautiful mother, who died far too soon, at the young age of 36. Any child would feel that way.
The documentary itself, which will be screened at the upcoming Cannes film festival, will be painful enough for the two young princes. The 90-minute film purports that Diana and Dodi died as the result of foul play and that the six-month inquest held by the British government was a coverup. “This is the story of how the world was deceived,” claims the film’s website.
I don’t see how showing Princess Diana’s dying face is any different from releasing the photograph of Osama Bin Laden dead. Both are immoral and unnecessary!
Let’s hope the film makers rethink that they’re doing , remove the photograph — and spare Prince William and Prince Harry this pain!
