In a shocking revelation, Princess of Wales' brother, Earl Spencer, has said that grave robbers have tried to break into Diana's grave in that past 20 years.

When you think of Princess Diana, a few iconic images probably flash through your mind: the 19-year-old bride in that voluminous wedding dress, the young princess stepping out of a vehicle wearing a stunning evening gown, or the more seasoned royal sporting khakis and a bullet-proof vest on one of her many humanitarian missions.

Earl Spencer, 53 told yesterday how the family had "seen them off" from the estate in Althorp, Northants. CBS released a documentary on Diana in May, a two-part special on the princess will air on ABC in August, and Andrew Morton's landmark 1992 tell-all, Diana: Her True Story, was re-released in June. In the interview, he claimed that he was lied to about William and Harry walking with their father Prince Charles and him during the procession.

"There are some odd people out there and keeping her right here is the safest place".

Earl Spencer (left) with (L-R) Prince William, Prince Harry and Prince Charles, said he had told a Buckingham Palace member of staff that his sister wouldn't have approved of the decision for the princes to walk.

"My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television", he said.

On 31 August 1997, Diana was fatally injured in a vehicle crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris. The accident also resulted in the deaths of her companion Dodi Fayed and the driver, Henri Paul, who was the acting security manager of the Hôtel Ritz Paris; Trevor Rees-Jones (Diana's bodyguard) survived the crash.
