Princess Diana: Loose Women WARN Prince Charles to maintain silence amid anniversary
THE stars of Loose Women have warned Prince Charles to maintain a dignified silence as the nation prepares to mark the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.
Speaking about whether the Prince of Wales should publicly acknowledge the death of his first wife, panellist Claire King warned that anything he could say could be damaging.
The former Coronation Street actress, 54, explained: “I think he’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. I think he’s in a really tricky situation but 20 years ago when Diana died very sadly, the royal family were in a bit of a bad place publicly-wise.
“They’ve just raised their profile, just popular again, due to the Queen and I think it could destroy them or damage them again if he was to open his mouth. I think people have accepted who Prince Charles is. He’s remarried, he’s moved on.”
She added: “I think the children are both doing their thing. We love William and Harry. It could be a dodgy thing for him to do. As the Queen says, ‘Keep calm, keep quiet and carry on’.”
Fellow Loose Women star Lisa Riley responded: “But he has carried on because he has remarried and he’s very happy with Camilla and as you said because he’s got the boys. There’s been so many documentaries, where the boys are coming across brilliantly because they are telling the truth. We want them to be honest.”
Presenter Andrea McLean told the rest of the panel that the opinions of the public were in fact irrelevant, saying: “What counts is how he is as a father.”
She read out a quote from the princes in which they said that their father had taken care of them in the best way that he could, breaking the news of Princess Diana’s death to them.
Andrea, 47, said: “Surely he’s done that and done it well?” Jane Moore appeared to agree with Claire, saying that he would land himself in trouble either way.
“What’s he going to say? It’s not really going to make any difference,” Jane, 55, reasoned.

Some critics have been calling on Prince Charles to speak out in on the 20th anniversary and mark the landmark date.
While he has not broken his silence, his sons have both been celebrating the life of their mother and have spoken in numerous interviews featured in documentaries that have been broadcast in the run up to the anniversary.
