Princess Diana LATEST: Derek Deane reveals Lady Di’s love for ballet as documentary unearths Charles’ dating record

A NEW documentary marking what would be Princess Diana's 60th birthday was aired last night - a week before her memorial statue is unveiled.

Lady Di was tragically killed in a car crash but 24 years later, she is still a much-loved figure for people across the world.

ITV has commissioned a new documentary focused on the life and legacy of the Queen of Hearts.

The 90-minute feature length film Diana is set to air this Thursday (24 June, 2021) at 9pm as a tribute to the late princess ahead of what would have been her birthday.

A statue is set to be revealed in honour of the late Princess on July 1 in London.

Both of her sons, Princes Harry and William, are to attend the event despite the post-Megxit tension which was made worse by the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex's interview with Oprah Winfrey.
