ITV is set to release a new documentary to mark Princess Diana's 60th birthday - and it's expected to feature archive footage of the Princess of Wales.
The one-off documentary is expected to air around the time of Princess Diana's birthday - 1st July.
It will feature never-heard-before testimony and rarely-seen archive footage as well as clips, photos and letters from those who were closest to the princess.
Teaming up with 72 Films for production of the doc, which is titled Diana, the film is expected to look at Diana's life both in front of and behind the cameras.
Diana tragically passed away on 31st August 1997, after she was involved in a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris.
Jo Clinton-Davis from ITV, said: "This year would have been Diana's 60th birthday, and the intention with this landmark documentary is to offer the definitive account of her life, both in front of the cameras and behind the scenes.
"It is a difficult undertaking to shed new light on the most emotional, dramatic and pivotal elements of the life of Diana, when that light still burns brightly.
"... But by delving deep into her relationships with friends, colleagues and staff, our aim is to provide a vivid portrayal of the woman who became known as the Queen of Hearts."
72 Films producer David Glover added: "There is something a bit magical about Princess Diana, and despite the difficulties in her personal life she managed to use her connection with people to do huge amounts of good.
"Her 60th birthday feels like the perfect time to re-examine her life and legacy and explore just how she went from a relatively unknown teenager to the most mourned person who ever lived."
The documentary has not yet been given a release date, but it's expected to air around Princess Diana's birthday.
Tyla has contacted ITV for further comment.
