England’s Prince Harry, the son of Princess Diana, has condemned the paparazzi for taking pictures of his dying mother shortly after their frenzied pursuit of the princess precipitated her fatal crash in a Paris tunnel.

“I think one of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people that chased her into the tunnel were the same people that were taking photographs of her while she was still dying on the back seat of the car,” said Harry in an interview with the BBC for upcoming documentary, Diana, 7 days.

“She’d had quite a severe head injury but she was very much still alive in the back seat,” added Harry. “And those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, were taking photographs of her dying on the back seat.”

Harry shared his perspective on the role of the paparazzi in the crash and in the aftermath as part of a number of interviews scheduled to be given by the princes before August 31, which will mark the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.
