Diana interview most unforgettable

3000 voters in a survey have chosen the interview of Princess Diana with Martin Bashir as the most memorable one. Needless to say, she had admitted to an adulterous relationship with his instructor James Hewitt. She had also said she would never be the queen but would like to be the 'queen of people's hearts.' This interview was watched by some 15 million people, probably BBC's highest. She had really made a clean breast of everything.

She had also said she was hurt by whatever was going on between Prince Charles and Camilla ('a bit crowded marriage') but she did not want a divorce. The 1977 interview of Richard Nixon in which he admitted his role in the watergate scandal was the second most memorable interview.

Diana is always green in our memory. This survey is yet another reminder to the fact. Do tell me how you feel about it. I will soon write two more pieces on the royal family. One on Kate Middleton- the princess waiting in the wings, and another on the infamous Charles-Camilla affair. Keep visiting.
