It was only a couple of months back that British Newspaper “The Times” ran with the headline “It’s too simple to blame everything on Bashir.” The article detailed how Princess Diana’s life started to literally fall apart after the infamous Panorama Interview. As the title suggests, though, it claimed that not all of Diana’s problems came from the interview itself. Instead, alluding to the fact that Diana did not get much help from her own family after her split from Prince Charles.
Diana’s Brother Didn’t Deny Her A House
The original article from The Times stated that Diana’s brother allegedly did not offer Diana a place to stay after her split from Prince Charles. What the Times had reported was that Earl Spencer was afraid of the backlash he could face if he helped his sister against the wishes of the Royal Family. So essentially he was the one that forced Diana to continue living at Kensington Palace. Even as numerous concerns for her safety had been raised by that point.
What Really Happened
Earl Spencer was actually able to prove that the claims being made against him were false. The paper has since been obligated to “tell the truth” about the ordeal. In today’s version, the paper, it published a correction of their first article. Now stating,
“We are happy to report that having considered his sister’s safety, and in line with police advice, the Earl offered the Princess of Wales a number of properties including Wormleighton Manor, the Spencer family’s original ancestral home,”
Boasting On Twitter
Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer took to Twitter to boast his legal victory. He posted a fraction of the paper. With a caption celebrating his victory. This is actually not the first time that Earl Spencer has sued and beat British publications in courts over claims that they made about him and his relationship with Princess Diana. In 2018 The Daily Mail had to pay him an undisclosed amount. After the paper claimed that he had acted, “”unbrotherly, heartless and callous way” towards Diana after her split from Charles.
Today, for the third time, a ‘paper has been forced by the Law to apologise for lying about me “depriving Diana of a home”. The guilty journalist this time? Janice Turner – aka @VictoriaPeckham of @thetimes

What Did Happen After The Panorama Interview?
Diana essentially still held her private residence in apartments 8 & 9 In Kensington Palace until the day that she tragically died. Many people are questioning Diana’s decision to remain there. That’s why Earl Spencer is being blamed by British publications. Could it have been that The Royals were the ones that didn’t want Diana living off property? If her brother did offer different accommodations to her, why did she still live inside royal headquarters? Too many questions, not enough answers. This dilemma though could help explain why Prince Harry is currently in California!
