Sir: Your leader (2 September) and Michael Knowles's letter (2 September) were courageous in identifying where the buck stops in the search of the causes of Diana's death. Blame the unholy trinity of paparazzi, press and public as you wish, but it was ultimately the Royal "Family" who destroyed the Princess of Wales.

When middle-aged ladies queuing for eight hours to leave their personal tributes to Diana say to TV cameras, with evident contempt, that they wouldn't do this "for the rest of them", then the House of Windsor ought to be quaking. No wonder they hide at Balmoral.
