...or is this whole 'the security services may have bugged the royal family' episode a bit odd? Without going into the details of MORE Diana stuff, I'd imagine that all communication including secure lines would be monitored and recorded as a matter of course. I can just imagine a journo bringing it up with HM. Journo 'Your majesty how do you feel about the possibility that the security services have been monitoring you and your family's communications?' HM 'Reassured, after all one never knows who one's talking to, Regnum Defende!'
