The fairy-tale life of Princess Diana will be back in the spotlight this summer.
ABC and People magazine are producing a four-hour documentary that will air over the course of two nights, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of Diana's death in a horrific car crash on August 31, 1997. The mother of two young boys was 36 years old.
"Even 20 years after her untimely death, Princess Diana's legacy continues to impact our world," says an ABC exec. "Our special will honor her memory and all the good that she did in her tragically brief life."
The untitled documentary will feature interviews with friends and royalty experts as well as archival footage from her 1981 wedding to Prince Charles and her tragic demise in a Paris tunnel, pursued at high speed by paparazzi. The crash also killed her boyfriend, billionaire Dodi Fayed, and their chauffeur, who was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and prescription drugs.
