Princes William and Harry had not seen their mother for almost a month before her death, they have revealed in a documentary about Diana's life. Her divorce from Prince Charles meant the boys were 'bounced' between their parents, losing out on time with both of them, Harry said. She died the day before they were due to be reunited. In the film, which airs tonight, the princes lavished praise on their mother and her ability to 'smother' them with love. But Harry laid bare how the divorce, Diana's high-profile charity work and her romance with Dodi Fayed meant he and William had not seen her for weeks before she died in Paris in August 1997.

Making of a Superman: As Britain's Chris Froome wins a stunning fourth Tour de France, how DID he conquer the world? And why DO Bradley Wiggins (and the French) dislike him?
Chris Froome became the first ever Briton to win the Tour de France for the fourth time yesterday as he rode triumphantly into Paris. The final stage of the three-week race is essentially a procession, so Froome, 32, was able to sip champagne and chat to his team-mates as they cycled through the French capital - having sealed his victory in all but name on Saturday. There to greet him after his third Tour victory in a row were his wife Michelle and 18-month-old son Kellan (shown left). The French crowds lining the avenues and boulevards have never taken Team Sky rider Froome to their hearts and there was the expected booing from some. But there was no denying this superb athlete's near-perfect performance and magnificent achievement. Here we look at the making of a cycling superstar and what makes Chris Froome an unstoppable force.

Brothers with a bond forged in tragedy - and humour: RICHARD KAY on the very special relationship that William and Harry share
Wherever she went in the world, Princess Diana took a picture of her sons with her. Sometimes they were serious and formal, and sometimes the boys dressed for fun. Just like this one - in outsize policeman's helmets, ties and walkie talkies strapped to their belts (left). She hadn't seen them for more than a month and it was a last chance for the three of them to be together before the boys went back to school. She had insisted that at every step through their childhood the spotlight should not fall alone on heir-in-line William, but must be shared with Harry. And one of the most powerful - and moving - things that comes across in tonight's documentary is a portrait of two young men, who although very different in outlook and character are remarkably close, writes RICHARD KAY. This is a very special relationship forged by duty and loss - yet running through it is a shared sense of humour inherited from their mother (pictured right taking the boys to school in 1989).

Last-ditch bid to save the world's last three northern white rhinos from extinction using a pioneering IVF treatment at a British safari park
Scientists and fertility experts at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire are attempting a world-first IVF treatment to try to save the northern white rhino, which has been reduced to just three after decades of poaching. The three remaining northern white rhinos all live under armed guard in Kenya, and are too old to naturally reproduce. There were more than 2,000 northern white rhinos in existence in the 1960s but they have been wiped out by poachers for their ivory which can sell for tens of thousands of pounds a kilogram. So in an effort to save the endangered subspecies, scientists have extracted eggs from three southern white rhinos, a more common breed, to make the first test-tube rhinos.

Treasure chest with £100MILLION of Nazi gold is found by a British crew in the wreck of a ship deliberately sunk by Hitler to avoid being captured
UK-based Advanced Marine Services found a box containing up to four tons of valuable metal believed to be gold from South American banks in the post room of the SS Minden, which sunk in 1939.
