Melissa Doyle of Channel Seven asked Rosa, “Was it she who suggested burying your baby at Kensington Palace?”

“Yes, yes it was… It was an extraordinary thing to do,” Rosa replied.

Diana then told her butler, Paul Burrel about the plans, who was involved in a “very, very moving ceremony”, with the two women. Diana gave Rosa a key to the palace gardens, which she still has.
