A TV insider told The Sun: "The documentary intends to look at the years leading up to the controversial interview, and the aftermath of discussing her relationship to the heir to the throne.

"It’s obviously timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Panorama programme, not to mention airing just as Netflix drama, The Crown, also delves behind the scenes of Charles and Di’s marriage.

The interview took place on November 20 in 1995, with Princess Diana discussing Prince Charles' relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles, now the Duchess of Cornwall.

In the interview, Princess Diana said that she struggled as "there were three of us in this marriage — so it was a bit crowded".

Princess Diana and Prince Charles got married in 1981, and later divorced in 1996.

She tragically died in a car accident in Paris in 1997.
