Martin Bashir from BBC assured Princess Diana that her husband had cheated on her with Tiggy Legge-Bourke, thereby defaming the nanny and manipulating her into accepting what is known to this day as "the interview of the century"
As reported by People magazine, Tiggy Legge-Bourke, former nanny of Princes William and Harry, has received from the BBC an amount close to 100,000 pounds (almost $ 137,521), as compensation for having been a victim of the lies that his reporter, Martin Bashir, told Lady Di to convince her to give him the famous "interview of the century", in 1995.
The journalist assured Princess Diana that her children's nanny had had an affair with her husband, Prince Charles, so much so that he told her that he was in love with her and they had had a secret vacation.
In addition, to make her information more credible, he told her that Tiggy had become pregnant and even showed her the alleged medical receipts for the abortion that would have been performed.
All of Martin's lies to get Princess Diana to give him the interview were exposed and under investigation just last year, when Lady Di's brother Charles Spencer accused him of having misled them back then.
"Tiggy Legge-Burke was at the center of Bashir's manipulation, and it is only fair that the damage done to him is acknowledged by the BBC," stated a source regarding compensation.
It is known that the ex-nanny is still in contact with William and Harry, so much so that she attended their wedding and chose them as groomsmen to her children, which shows the close relationship she has with them.
