The Princess of Wales is cast as a trendsetter, a #MeToo pioneer, ‘the ultimate influencer’ and much more in a documentary which revels in laughably revisionist history
I’m afraid to say that the youth have discovered Diana, Princess of Wales. Maybe we’ll have to go through this every generation now – another thing to add to the list, along with sex and drugs, that any cohort coming into its majority thinks it has invented anew. Just when you thought people couldn’t get more tiresome.
Talking of tiresome, we turn to Channel 4’s 49-minute-long (I know because I kept checking how many were still left to go) documentary Diana: Queen of Style. She was “the ultimate influencer”, we are assured, with the programme promising to trace how she became “the perfect icon for today”.
