Scoop: DATELINE on NBC - Today, May 5, 2017

In a new, two-hour "Dateline NBC" this Friday, Princess Diana's former bodyguard Ken Wharfe opens up about Diana's decision to forgo security after her divorce from Prince Charles. "There's only one person that could - in my view - that could have insisted that she retain her security, and that would have been the Queen," Wharfe said. "If the Queen had insisted that she retain that security then we wouldn't be having this discussion because Diana, in my view, would have been alive today." To watch the preview, click here.
