Prince William and Prince Harry are set to feature in an upcoming series of documentaries dedicated to their mum, Princess Diana.

The special programmes, which will reportedly air on both the BBC and ITV, will pay tribute to the late Princess of Wales, as they mark the 20th anniversary of her tragic death.

According to The Sunday Times, both William and Harry will talk in detail about their memories of their mother, and their experiences of the nation's public outpouring of grief.

The documentary for the BBC is scheduled for broadcast some time this summer, and will take a look at the widespread national – and global – reaction to Diana's death.

ITV's commission, planned to air shortly before the BBC's, will focus on the Princess of Wales' extensive charitable legacy and her achievements in working for causes, including HIV and AIDS.

The princes have been notably guarded about their mother, with Harry admitting last year that he wished he had opened up about Diana's death sooner.

Harry, who was just 12 when his mum passed away, said: "Everything can be okay but I really regret not ever talking about it.

"It's okay to suffer as long as you talk about it. Weakness is having a problem and not recognising it and not solving that problem."
