Royal Editor Robert Jobson took a sceptical view on the Diana, Princess of Wales inquest findings which said the BBC secured their interview using “deceit” through fake narratives and forged documents. Mr Jobson argued Princess Diana would have held an interview regardless of the BBC’s influence as she had reportedly contacted several other media outlets to speak to. The royal expert concluded and said the inquest “rewrites history” and suggests Princess Diana was more vulnerable than how she actually was. 

Speaking on Sky News, Mr Jobson discussed the recent inquest and shared his thoughts on the revelations. 

He told the programme: “I think there are two narratives at play here, one is that the BBC were wrong in what they did. 

“And what happened [to Diana] happened a long time ago and it was Mr Bashir’s actions were deceitful and wrong. 

“But the other side which slightly worries me is the talk of paranoia of the princess. 

“I was around 25 years ago and the princess gave a very clear interview where she got across what she wanted to say. 

“She went to see Max Hastings, the editor of The Telegraph, a few weeks before and made it clear she had a narrative that she wanted to get [her story] out there. 

“Now whether or not the BBC would have got this interview had Bashir not acted in the way he did, I really do not believe the princess would have stopped there she really wanted to get her point across. 

“She probably would have gone somewhere else.”
