[06:26.41]could be channeled

[07:56.61]Princess Diana.

[07:58.76]Camila, the Duchess of Cornwall,

[08:02.51]her presence could divert attention

[08:04.51]from the purpose of the occasion.

[08:08.01]It was always going to be

[08:09.35]a controversial appearance.

[08:11.29]Now the Duchess of Cornwall

[08:12.94]has apparently decided

[08:14.32]to avoid it all together.

[08:16.54]Despite being invited

[08:18.13]to attend the memorial service

[08:19.95]by the Princes William

[08:21.07]and Harry themselves,

[08:22.98]Calima's statement today said

[08:25.17]she thought it would be better

[08:26.67]not to be present

[08:28.36]because it would take attention away

[08:30.26]from the purpose of the event.

[08:32.29]She said she was grateful

[08:34.07]to Prince Charles who she insisted

[08:36.07]had supported her change of mind.
