Diana, a “Cleopatra-like” icon who posed a threat to the hallowed institution of the British Monarchy, continues to fascinate people around the world 25 years after her death. Rebel princess, princess of hearts, the people’s princess; Lady Di is an enduring heroine for so many. Princess Diana was undoubtedly the most popular and famous woman in the world at the time of her death at the age of 36. The drama surrounding this shocking tragedy left many people in deep sadness and even today, she is remembered with passion.

With new input from her former butler, Paul Burrell, and Andrew Morton, the biographer she confided in, along with monarchy experts who followed her closely for nearly 20 years, this new documentary takes a fresh and contemporary look back at her life. It recounts the rise and fall of a princess crushed by a nightmarish fairy tale who rose up out of the ashes of her marriage, only to be felled by a tragic and untimely death.

Produced to coincide with what would have been her 60th birthday this year, this moving and eye-opening film explores just how Diana continues to live on today. In poignant testimony, Prince Harry tells us about his mother’s enduring influence, while her daughters-in-law, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge and Megan, the Duchess of Sussex, describe how she continues to inspire them. Even famous stars share their personal anecdotes of time spent with the world’s best-loved princess.
