Two decades af­ter they lost their mother, Princes Wil­liam and Harry share their grief in a BBC1 doc­u­men­tary, Diana, 7 Days, on Sun­day at 7.30pm.

‘We owe it to her,’ says Prince Wil­liam. ‘We feel that we let her down when we were younger. We couldn’t pro­tect her. We owe it to her to stand up for her, to do our duty as sons in pro­tect­ing her.’

the doc­u­men­tary, which also fea­tures in­ter­views with Earl Spencer and then Prime Min­is­ter tony Blair, re­calls the days that fol­lowed Princess Diana’s shock­ing death, lead­ing up to her fu­neral.

Prince Harry is still touched by the pub­lic re­sponse to her pass­ing.

‘When she died there was such an out­pour­ing of love. It ’s amaz­ing that our mother had such a huge ef­fect on so many peo­ple,’ he says.

‘twenty years on seems like a good time to re­mind peo­ple of the dif­fer­ence that she made to the Royal fam­ily and to the world.'
