After nearly 20 years, Princess Diana is still remembered as the ‘People’s Princess’. An iconic figure, whose life was played out in the public eye, tragically died in a car crash in 1997. This past Tuesday, HBO announced that they will be airing a nonfiction documentary that will delve into Lady Diana’s impact as a mother and humanitarian. The untitled film is directed by Ashley Gething and produced by Oxford Film and Television.
Executive producer, Nick Kent, stated “This film will show Princess Diana in a way she has never been seen before, through the eyes of the two people who knew her best.” Her sons, Prince Harry and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, are to talk about their mother and how she influenced their lives. The project will also include contributions from Princess Diana’s friends and other members of her family. Aside from interviews from individuals close to the princess, the documentary will also look at her philanthropic initiatives that included homelessness, HIV, AIDs, and child welfare.
The documentary on Princess Diana is slated to air later this year on HBO and on ITV in the UK.
