Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy

This film is coming soon to celebrate the life and work of Diana, Princess of Wales, in the 20th year since her tragic death.

The film is built around contributions from HRH The Duke of Cambridge and HRH Prince Harry, both of whom talk openly about their mother and pay tribute to the many ways her influence has shaped their lives.
In the recently released promo for the film, the brothers look through a private family album that was assembled by their mother and recall some of the most joyful and touching moments from their childhood. Studying a photo of The Princess holding him whilst pregnant with Prince Harry, Prince William says: "Believe it or not, you and I are both in this photograph, you're in the tummy."

Prince Harry says:
"This is the first time that the two of us have ever spoken about her as a mother."

Prince William says:
"She was very informal and really enjoyed the laughter and the fun."

Prince Harry says:
"She was one of the naughtiest parents."

Prince William says:
"But she understood that there was a real life outside of Palace walls."

Prince Harry says:
"She was our mum. She still is our mum. And of course, as a son I would say this, she was the best mum in the world. She smothered us with love, that's for sure."

The film also includes individual contributions from many key figures in the Princess’ life and new archival material. Through the personal and intimate reflections of her two sons and of her friends and family, many of whom have never spoken publicly before, the film offers fresh and revealing insights into Princess Diana, an iconic figure who touched the lives of millions.

Their Royal Highnesses will also offer their perspective on The Princess' unique contribution to public life, including her charitable and humanitarian work. Areas including Landmines, Child Bereavement, Homelessness and HIV and AIDS, will be explored.
