AS a damning report into how former BBC journalist Martin Bashir obtained his legendary interview with Princess Diana is published, we turn back the clock 40 years to when the newly-wed royal visited York.

Accompanied by Prince Charles, the royal visit took place on November 12 1981 - just one week after the announcement of her pregnancy.

During the visit, thousands of fans thronged the streets of York for a glimpse of Diana and Charles.

They were lucky to see her. The princess had suffered from morning sickness, but managed to honour her engagement with the people of York.

They travelled in an open-top vehicle, dubbed the "Prince mobile".

During their visit, they went to York Rugby ground where 7,000 school children were there to greet them.

Already becoming a fashion icon, she wore a bottle green cape coat over a floral dress and a black wide rimmed felt hat.

Today's photo of Diana and Charles was one of several taken by Press photographers on the day.

They also visited the National Railway Museum and took a ride on a replica of Stephenson's Rocket.
