He will interview BBC staff and have access to all their records.

But on Friday, Earl Spencer questioned the scope of the probe.

The source close to Prince Harry was responding to suggestions the prince had failed to speak up over the controversy surrounding the Panorama interview.

The BBC said it will publish the investigation's findings after its conclusion.

"Harry is getting regular updates and is aware of everything that is happening", the source told the BBC.

"You do not need a public statement to imagine how he is feeling privately, people know how much his mother means to him".

"He has bravely spoken out in the past about loss and grief, and the enormous impact it has had on him", they continued.

Lord Dyson will be looking into allegations made by the Princess of Wales' brother, Charles Spencer, earlier this month that accused BBC journalist Martin Bashir of using forged bank statements and false claims to convince her to participate in the interview.

What will the investigation look at?

It will also examine what knowledge the BBC had in 1995 and 1996 of "mocked up bank statements purporting to show payments to a former employee of Earl Spencer (and) the purported payments to members of the Royal Households", the corporation said.

The BBC's current director-general, Tim Davie, said the broadcaster commissioned the independent investigation "to get to the truth about these events".

However Diana's brother said he was "not at all satisfied with the parameters" set around the inquiry into the BBC Panorama interview.

Writing on Twitter, he added: "Lord Dyson must be free to examine every aspect of this matter, from 1995 to today, as he sees fit".

A BBC spokeswoman said the investigation would be "fully independent" with "a suitably wide remit".

The spokeswoman added: "Clearly, if anyone submits new evidence - or the investigation needs to go to particular places - then Lord Dyson will be able to consider that appropriately".

The explosive Panorama interview famously featured Diana saying: "Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded".
