    Priority on the day will be given to honouring the life of Elizabeth II.  The media will talk about the Royal Family dynamics during her reign.  For obvious reasons, Diana will be mentioned as she was a member of the Royal Family for the 16 years of her marriage.

    The day Charles becomes King will be the day the Queen dies. The media will be talking about the Queen, her reign and her legacy. They will be reading messages of condolence from all over the world and explaining about the Lying in State and arrangements for the funeral. There will be a mention of the new King and Queen but Charles is unlikely to make any public comment until the next day. The media will allow the family a period of grief before saying anything controversial.

    Diana will be mentioned as part of Charles' life history. Diana is the mother of William, a future monarch, and Harry, Charles' sons, so she will not be forgotten. The credible media will not harp on the subject, though. Diana will be remembered as Charles' first wife, mother of his children, and that she died in an accident. The media will discuss Charles' education, service in the military, works as Prince of Wales, expectations of what is to come; they will talk about William and Harry.

    Some of the gutter press and the trolls on here will wallow in what happened in the past but that's all.  I'd suggest that it's all been more than done to the death.

    Not on the day of the Queen's death.  They will in the run-up to Charles's coronation, because the media, as is standard in such situations, will trot out any and all background information, history, video footage, etc. to pad their coverage.

    That's what they do. That's pretty much what the public expects them to do.  Not that, in this case, they'll have anything new to say on the subject of Charles and Diana, but they'll say it anyway.

    The public, by then, being fully in possession of the details already, will be much more interested in the coronation itself. Most people in the UK -- the world -- will never have seen the coronation of a British monarch. It will attract a great deal of attention and overshadow all else.

    No, but it is a fair guess you will still be trolling it.

    The day Prince Charles becomes king is the day the Queen dies. Diana won't merit a mention, unless it is to say she was another cross the Queen had to bear through a very long reign.

    Yes, of course it will. The whole pathetic mess will be chewed over again, of who did what to whom. People are still asking questions about Queen Victoria, King Edward VIII and Mrs Simpson. Yes, it is history, it doesn't mean that people don't talk about it, what could have been, what would have been and what should have been.

    Shouldn't think so. They are in the business of reporting news not history. 

    They will be talking about the Queen and the arrangements for her funeral.

    Any retrospectives will be about her.
