Former model sets the record straight

Heather Mills thinks the late Princess Diana has been getting too much credit for the passing of a treaty to ban landmines.

The former model, 41, insists she spearheaded the movement back in the early 1990s.

‘We got 42 countries and then we were stuck, and that was when Princess Diana helped for 8 months,’ Heather tells the Observer Food Monthly.

‘And because she was a shining light and went to one minefield, suddenly everyone was into landmines.

‘But then everyone used to say: “Oh, Heather’s copying Diana!” And everyone in the landmine industry just laughed, because they said: “Well, Heather’s been doing this for 6 years.”’
