Sir, Westminster Abbey is not considering
selling items commemorating the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales
(report, May 23). The Dean and Chapter would never seek to benefit
from or exploit any of its ministry (including the funeral of
Princess Diana). We certainly have no need of “rescue”.
Westminster Abbey Enterprises has signed a contract with a
marketing group which will produce a Heritage Collection. It will
draw on the Abbey’s extensive and hitherto largely unseen archives,
but it is too early to speculate what that will include.
