((United in grief, the British seem to be moving through the stages of bereavement as one, shock giving way to denial and now, days before the princess is to be buried, tremendous sadness. SHE TOUCHED THIS NATION As preparations continue for Saturday's procession and funeral for Princess Diana, some of the paparazzi being investigated for possibly contributing to her death are putting their own spin on the story. One of them now says he was trying to take the princess's pulse as she was trapped in the car, because he is certified in first aid and CPR. And this one, in an exclusive television interview with Dan Rather, says he came upon the accident scene after the other photographers and didn't even know the woman in the wreckage was Princess Diana. JACQUES LANGEVIN/PHOTOGRAPHER: Langevin and the others were released from jail yesterday after a French judge decided there was enough evidence to investigate them for possible manslaughter charges. For the first time in 3 days, Buckingham Palace issued a statement thanking the British for their support, saying Prince Charles and Diana's sons were particularly moved. Around London, the lines are getting longer of people wishing to pay their last respects.))
