Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace threatened Wednesday to cancel a photo opportunity of Princes William, 15, and Harry, 13, on holiday with their father Prince Charles in British Columbia, after Canadian camera crews filmed the boys getting on a ski lift. The spokesman told 100 reporters and photographers that the princes were upset by the breach of privacy. If the episode is repeated, he said, the princes' planned appearance Thursday would be canceled.
The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, which has been criticized for allowing the late Princess' signature logo to appear on a tub of margarine, said Wednesday it was approached by the American toy firm Hasbro Inc. about games, puzzles and other toys, including a doll like its popular Sindy. But the London-based Fund responded, "The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund has not granted a license for a Diana Sindy Doll." A spokesman said a Diana doll of some other kind has not been ruled out, as long as it meets the trustees' requirements and is judged acceptable to the public.
