“[The program] retraces the events of Princess Diana’s first and last tumultuous summer as a single woman, divorced from Prince Charles, caught between romantic affairs until the moment of her tragic and untimely death in a car accident in Paris,” the statement from ABC news began.

During the show, Bashir — who previously won a BAFTA Award in 1996 for his prior, tell-all interview with the People’s Princess — will speak with individuals from inside Diana’s circle of friends and confidants about her “relationships, romance, the press, and the public eye.”
“Those who knew her best told us that it was no fluke Diana became the most glamorous woman in the world. She had exceptional intuition, street smarts and a charisma that no one could resist,” the special’s executive producer Terence Wrong revealed.

“Producing this poignant tribute to the world’s most famous woman 20 years after her tragic and untimely death has shown yet again what an incredible person we lost,” producer Sheldon Lazarus said. “Through testimonies of those nearest to her, this special showcases the everlasting impact Princess Diana has around the world.”
The two-hour show will also feature details about Diana’s romances with Dodi al-Fayed and Hasnat Khan. Following her August 1996 divorce from Charles, Diana began secretly dating Kahn — a British-Pakistani heart surgeon — for nearly two years.
