Diana Fund in Snit

Lawyers for the Princess Diana Memorial Fund plan to fight a bid by a German entrepreneur for the international rights to the name “Lady Di,” a fund spokeswoman said. Andre Engelhardt of Bavaria said he plans to use the name on a range of products, including women’s undies and perfume. One of the scents would carry the slogan, “Royal but intimate.” Engelhardt, 35, faces legal opposition from the fund, which is determined to control all rights to the late Princess’s name and image and has lodged objections to the Bavarian businessman’s various trademark applications. Buckingham Palace said it objected to the trademark bid but would leave any challenges to the fund.
