The Funeral of Princess Diana

Diana's brother Earl Spencer remembers the emotional speech he made at her funeral.

Diana's brother Earl Spencer made a passionate speech at her funeral, which was interpreted by many as an attack on the Royal Family and the British press. He speaks to Mishal Husain about delivering the eulogy - and about the "bizarre and cruel" decision that her children William and Harry should walk behind her coffin.
