Sir: In your report "MPs back Earl's call to liberate princes" (8 September) you distort Earl Spencer's description of Princess Diana being driven "to tearful despair" and apply his words as criticism of the monarchy; they categorically were not, they were criticism of the press. The pious affirmation that intrusive pictures will not appear in your paper counts for nothing if you cannot respect words, which can be just as ill used as a camera.
