In Their Own Words: Princess DianaThe short reign and eternal legacy of a princess whose charm and grace would impact the world. AIRS: Tuesday September 28, 2021 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on documentary Channel
Our story of Diana’s life looks back through a contemporary lens that credits her choices, her suffering, and her triumphs as the ultimate disrupter for a generation of women across the globe. Many interviewees knew Diana personally, and reveal the motivation that drove her to confront both the restrictions of her personal life, a marriage to a man who loved another woman, and the Royal family who attempted to mold her. Her young life became the fairytale of a generation, and as she grew to face and change the reality of the illusion she was living, she transformed herself in front of our eyes, becoming the most photographed woman in the world.
When her marriage dissolved, Diana could have stepped off the world stage and created a quiet, private life for herself. Instead, driven by a need to help and change the world for those who suffer, Diana chose to use the power of her influence to change lives. We meet those closest to her and follow as she grew from a shy, aristocratic school girl into a dynamic force for change. This is a journey from the inside of her life, and the story of a woman who defied expectations and evolved into one of the most impactful icons of our time.
