On August 31st, Princess Diana's 25th death anniversary will be honoured by HBO as they will release a new documentary on her, The Princess. Directed by Ed Perkins, the film is said to have used footage of Diana from the archives to spell out her life story through these videos. Though a concerning addition to the stack of footage being used is the Princess' taboo BBC interview with journalist Martin Bashir.

A palace insider told Page Six, "William and Harry are united in their distaste for the BBC and Bashir’s ethics regarding the interview. But they do have differing opinions." While William has expressed his strict views on the interview in his opinion the interview should be locked away in the BBC vaults and never be seen again, Harry reportedly disagrees. The source claimed, "Harry has more condemnation for the media in this case, rather than the actual interview, and is said to not want the footage erased from history," and added, "This is something that came together in the wrong way, but in the end it is still part of Diana’s story."

The sources also reveal that neither of the Princes was asked about the clips being used. As per the outlet, a good five-minute chunk of Princess Diana's 1995 interview is being added to the documentary. In the clip, she broke silence on her ex-husband Prince Charles' relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles as she disclosed, "There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded."

However, in May 2021, British judge Lord Dyson's report discovered that Bashir had tricked Diana into giving the interview. He used tampered documents that showed staffers in the palace were being paid to plant stories about her in the media.
