Two Princes 'standing up for Diana' in documentary

By Sherna Noah

The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry have said they wanted to make a documentary about their mother because they felt they had let her down by not protecting her.

BBC documentary Diana (a working title) will tell "the inside story of the tumultuous and unprecedented week that followed the death of Diana, Princess of Wales". The film features in-depth interviews with her sons, speaking about events from the moment they heard of their mother's death to the funeral.

In the documentary, Prince William said: "Part of the reason why Harry and I want to do this is because we feel we owe it to her. I think an element of it is feeling like we let her down when we were younger. We couldn't protect her.

"We feel we at least owe her, 20 years on, to stand up for her name and remind everybody of the character and person that she was. Do our duties as sons in protecting her."

They will also reflect on Diana's life. Prince Harry said: "When she died, there was such an outpouring of emotion and love which was quite... which was shocking. It was beautiful at the same time and it was amazing, now looking back at it, it was amazing that our mother had such a huge effect."
