She was frank with the press.
Diana appeared on the cover of Vogue three times before her death, and she didn’t shy away from tough questions. In 1995, Diana secretly gave a very revealing interview with the BBC’s Martin Bashir. Though her aides claimed she later regretted it, the princess tried to take control of the media and paparazzi frenzy around her life. It was her first solo interview and was watched by more than 21.5 million people in the United Kingdom.
