Letter: Diana, latest victim of the car culture

Sir: On the same page as various items discussing the paparazzi in pursuit of Princess Diana, you publish (1 September) a photograph of the two young princes and their father being driven to church on Sunday morning, taken by a lens that was peering through the windows of the car.

I find that photograph unacceptably intrusive. Please may these children be allowed to grieve for their dead mother in private, however public the occasion? At the funeral, may they be allowed to weep, if they weep, without being displayed across the screens and newspapers of the world?

This is the first memorial we might build to the People's Princess.

The Rev BERNARD O'CONNOR OSA
