Nearly thirty years after his parents exchanged their wedding vows, Prince William walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey with his new bride. 'My Mother Diana' looks at how Diana’s life, her relationship with the House of Windsor, the media and the public have shaped her eldest son, Prince William. When a twenty year-old Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, their wedding at St Paul’s was watched by billions; it was the last great royal wedding to galvanise the British public. But that relationship would develop into a romantic tragedy, whose effects would be more profound than anyone could have imagined. In his marriage to Kate Middleton, Prince William is entering into a new and independent stage of his life…a life in which his mothers influence and presence appear centre-stage and ever-present.. It is easy to forget that William’s formative years were not the idyll with the ’Princess of People’s Hearts’…rather they took place in the midst of a vicious divorce battle. William’s loyalties divided and fought over during the War of the Wales.
‘My Mother Diana’ is the story of Charles and Diana's marriage from a new and revealing point of view. It’s the story of how their marriage shaped William. It explores the effect of his mother’s relationships, the tell-all book she collaborated on with Andrew Morton, the effects of her Panorama interview and William's reaction to his father’s relationship with Camilla. On the surface William appears to be a product of the old order, groomed by the House of Windsor. But William is the son of Diana - who transcended celebrity and transformed the monarchy. This film seeks to understand William by exploring his relationship with his mother and examines where William was as key moments of her later life played out; because what she went through made him who he is today Why did William propose using his mother’s engagement ring? And what does it tell us about this future King and the legacy of his mother Diana? Fourteen years after her death Diana’s influence appears undiminished. But will William be the King Diana wished him to be?

As much as Prince Charles was at fault , I think, their marriage with Diana was arranged. In that sense it wasn't founded on love. Marriage of convenience. Tragic story

Brave, brilliant Diana put herself out there looking totally glamorous setting aside that shy girl wanting to become a princess, blossoming into the approachable beautiful lady she became in the face of Charles who betrayed her and lowered her self esteem, devastatingly bringing on Bulimia

Charles and Camilla both betrayed Diana, she didn't get the fairytale life she'd rightly expected and rebelled like any other woman would have done under the circumstances and who could blame her? Such a sad ending, I would have loved to see her today, she would have loved to see her boys growing up although Harry has gone astray which is such a shame with all the emotional effort Diana had put into the relationship and the establishment that she wanted to see her boys go through. She was an amazing person, its a shame Charles hadn't seen that.

I'm very sorry for both brothers, becouse they so the father not a good with there mother that she new hes infedility to there mother. And now William don't undertand hes brother motives to get out or the monarky. Harry don't whant that Meghan suffer same torture that hes mother whent true. William should be more untertending of hes brother and not be so snob like he's now; he and Kate that they don't like Meghan from the the first moment they new her.

At around minute 24:25, the narrator says that Princess Diana "secretly invited the Panorama team" to Kensington Palace. Recent investigations have shown that she was blackmailed into doing so, with falsified documents which appeared to show that her brother, Earl Charles Spencer, had some banking issues that Panorama TV team would make public. This was a conniving fraud perpetrated upon Princess Diana which lead to her infamous interview, which she certainly did *not* want to do. Shameful media behaviour, once again.

I hope all the paparazzi who hounded her and made money off of the numerous pictures they took, the stories they wrote...I hope they're all miserable now. Would serve them right. And humanity in general needs to learn the meaning of privacy again instead of craving to know every little detail about another person's life, famous or not. Diana was full of genuine love and light and the royal family killed that just as she was finding herself and finding happiness. We ❤Diana

I blame the queen and prince Philip also Charles One : they couldn't rise Charles Charles was born without freedom. Also he was born with a lot women around him Charles One: is so blind to see Camila is a married women. Two: diana was a minor so I think he was a creep Three: Camila was fighting to have Charles Four: diana did more work for the royals than herself Image being In the royal family like I would leave start away Also : I feel sad for william because if I look at his face it looks like he wants to escape his family Also wants to have a happy life with his own family(his children and wife)without the pressure of him one day be king. Im happy that harry escape because if he and megan were still they would have no dead end

What Charles & Camilla did to Diana was cruelty beyond belief. The sad thing is she could of had a happy life had she not of met him & still be alive today. She was used to provide the heir to the throne and he never before or after his marriage intended giving up Camilla. Charles & Camilla in their selfishness cared nothing about the pain they inflicted on both of their children.

William has learned to stay reserved and formal according to the monarchy’s rules on how one should act as a future king. I believe he appreciated his father’s setting because of the lack of paparazzi. However, I can’t understand on how he has accepted Camilla. Guess we really don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. Harry, on the other hand, freed himself from all the pomp and circumstances, I truly believe he loves his brother and dad but will forge ahead to happiness with Meaghan by his own standards and not the monarchy. Bravo Harry!

It doesnt matter whether they took a picture of Charles hugging the children. We didnt care about Charles. We loved Diana and the boys. That photo sealed it for Princess Diana how much her children loved her and how much she loved her children. She was a different royal mother. That's why today the boys love their dad, even though we didnt see that photo. We would lose Diana, therefore, for the sake of " our" lives, we needed to see such a photo and no one could ever successfully say, she wasnt a good mother, because she was.

There’s a recording of Diana telling the story of the night at camillas sister party. She clearly said there was a 3rd person amongst Charles and camilla all speaking amongst themselves before she joined in when she found them. Hate when ppl fabricate stuff to make it sound juicy. 12mins in and I’m already fed up with the bullsh*t. These ppl lack integrity

@A Rochester ah sorry then. These documentaries aren't that accurate. For example according to one Diana gave her engagement ring to William, the other one says that boys chose what to keep( so harry had the ring and decided to give to william) the third one says that they decided that the one that would marry first will take the ring. So this is what annoys me the most. People acting like they witnessed everything.

@only girl I’m referring to the conversation they were having at the party... when Diana went downstairs to find Charles, according to a recording of Diana, she said it was Charles, camilla and a 3rd person having a conversation before she joined, but this documentary stated it was just Charles and camilla. So this documentary has ignored the presence of that 3rd person to make it seem as if Charles and camilla was up to no good when Diana found them downstairs. I wasn’t referring to the relationship.
