This programme, narrated by Trevor McDonald, is a commemoration of the life of Diana, Princess of Wales. Reflecting on moments from her early childhood, her strength which overcame insurmountable obstacles and the blossoming of her personality and maturity, to her tragic, untimely death at the age of 36 on 31 August 1997. Her astonishing impact on the world and her legacy of love and compassion for those in need was highlighted by a world left mourning and reflected in the poignancy of her funeral.

Her greatest asset was that she was loved by millions of ordinary people who never met her. Her fame crossed all boundaries. She knew she'd never be Queen of England and said she wanted to be Queen of People's Hearts. In death Diana, Princess of Wales became 'THE PEOPLE'S PRINCESS'.

Close friends explain how she really felt about her life, her marriage, her divorce and life within the Royal Family. They explain how ultimately Diana fought back from her bleakest moments to a new found confidence and fame on her own terms.
