McCartneys get Diana lawyer

McCartneys get Diana lawyer
Sir Paul McCartney and estranged wife Heather have hired the same lawyers who represented Prince Charles and Princess Diana when they divorced 10 years ago.
Heather (38) has retained solicitor Anthony Julius, who acted for Princess Diana in 1996, winning a reported £17m settlement.
Sir Paul (64) has chosen Fiona Shackleton, who represented Prince Charles, to argue his case.
The couple announced their separation in May after four years of marriage. Their legal teams will be battling over Sir Paul's fortune, which is believed to be more than £800m. The couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, Beatrice, blamed their break-up on press intrusion, and said they remained friends.
