United Kingdom television to air Diana's recordings on failed marriage

Princess Diana's brother begs Channel 4 not to air explosive documentary

She said although the details of the tapes were already leaked, watching the tapes would be "more voyeuristic".

Settelen had been hired to help Diana prepare to publicly present her account of events after the couple separated in 1991.

An upcoming documentary about the late Princess Diana will include some candid, revealing conversations that have never before been heard on British television - and her brother has reportedly "pleaded" with broadcaster Channel 4 not to air the tapes.

Numerous objects selected to feature in the display were chosen by Diana's sons Princes William and Harry "to reflect their mother's commitment to duty and their personal memories of her", the Royal Collection Trust said last Friday.

She also claims Prince Philip told Charles that if the marriage did not work out, he could go back to Camilla "after five years".

She said that the pair had sex "once every three weeks" but that it fizzled a few years after Prince Harry was born in 1984.

Princess Diana struggled for years against bulimia and was "fading physically" after learning her husband, the future king of England, was cheating, long-time pals of the late royal said.

"He chatted me up", Diana says.

In the tapes, she also describes the blunt response by Charles on being confronted about his affair as, "I refuse to be the only Prince of Wales who never had a mistress".

Thousands of Muslims from around Israel and Palestinian areas typically worship at the holy compound in Jerusalem's Old City. Israel's military says a Palestinian was shot and killed after he ran at soldiers brandishing a knife in the West Bank.

Diana and Charles met only 13 times before marrying.

"He wasn't consistent with his courting abilities", she said.

Penny Junor branded the decision to broadcast the video tapes "appalling" before insisting it would be "extremely humiliating" for her family members. "I said I was rejected, I didn't think I was good enough for this family, so I took it out on myself".

"I just needed someone to tell me I was all right and he mentally kicked me outside and made me go and do my engagements because I used to scream in this room [in Kensington Palace]. I chose to hurt myself instead of hurting all of you".

One of Diana's closest friends, Rosa Monckton also told the paper: "How intrusive is this?"

"She has been dead for 20 years we have never let her rest in peace, the media time and time and time again have been putting her on the front page of their newspapers, producing documentaries about her".

Before the 20th anniversary of her death in a auto crash in Paris, Channel 4 will broadcast Diana: In Her Own Words on August 6, despite a report in The Mail on Sunday newspaper that her brother Charles Spencer is unhappy with the decision. "I think it's absolutely shameful that these tapes have been made available".

However, Channel 4 has said the tapes are an "important historical source" and that it will go ahead with the documentary.
