I too think it is important to bring this out, but question the use of the young royals. While it may be seen as 'good' for them, one wonders about the youngsters they saw. Those that were willing to watch this sort of programme would have done so without the involvement of Sarah or her daughters, as indeed they did his last programme, in fact very many could be put off because of her involvement.I find I agree with all of you, but isn´t this the job of investigative journalists or others in a position to do so, why the Duchess of York and her young daughter? Are they really that high profile that they will actually make a difference?
If (a very big if) it makes a difference to those poor sufferers then good, but if not it seems a bit cruel to use them as a means of getting attention for themselves and get in photo ops. I still think that if the Duchess (and I do think she is kind hearted and well meaning besides what I said) she should have gone alone.
Alienating the government in charge is hardly going to encourage them to listen to anything anyone else says, it will probably encourage them to hide these atrocities even more.
The comparison between Diana taking the princes to homeless shelters and this is incomprehensible, the homeless shelters in the UK at that time would seem like a night in the Dorchester or Grosvenor.
