AS THE 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death approaches, her brother Earl Charles Spencer is revealing new details about her death and the events that unfolded at her funeral.

Spencer told Radio 4’s Today he was “lied to” about having the princes walk behind their mother’s coffin during the funeral procession — an action he was vehemently against, the BBC reported.

“I was lied to and told that they wanted to do it, which of course they didn’t,” Spencer said.

“It was the worst part of the day by a considerable margin, walking behind my sister’s body with two boys who were obviously massively grieving their mother.”
