Ahead of the 20th anniversary of her death in a Paris car crash, footage of the late Princess Diana will on air on the British Television, where she confessed about her failed marriage with Prince Charles.
“Diana, In Her Own Words”, will broadcast on August 6, confirmed the channel. However, it has been revealed that her brother Earl Charles Spencer is unhappy with the decision.
In the tapes, the late Princess pours her heart out about her loveless marriage to the heir to the British throne and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles (now his wife).
Diana also discusses her struggle with bulimia and an unconsummated romance with a mystery man, widely believed to be her bodyguard Barry Mannakee, who died in a motorbike accident.
“At 24, I fell deeply in love with someone who was part of all this and that was all found out and he was chucked out and then he was killed. And that was the deepest blow in my life,” Princess confesses in the footage.
The tapes, however, have been screened previously in the United States in 2004 and are also available online, but they have not been ever broadcast before.
