The radio station's use of the interview with the 14YO was inappropriate, but I'm even more appalled by the mother putting her daughter in that situation.

All I'm reading so far re: her reason for "apparently" committing suicide is speculation. Have you seen anything more than that? Unless she left a note, that may be all we ever have.

Whatever the reason, it's their game, they set the rules. ETA: Well, the House of Windsor doesn't set the...
