A new documentary shows the late princess candidly speaking about her in-laws and their handling of Prince Charles' affair.

The princess also revealed that she even approached Camilla, and begged her to leave her husband alone, only to be told that she should be grateful for her two sons and content with her lot.

According to The Sun, footage filmed in the months before that Paris vehicle wreck shows Lady Di talking about Charles' affair - and now the BBC cameraman responsible for the interview is sharing his diary about the experience! She had told how she had tracked Charles for the hand caught in the bag.

Another shocking claim found in the cameraman's diary is that Diana stated she'd do anything in her power to keep Charles from becoming king. She described how she came to listen to their phone calls.

The sports overran slightly, pushing back the series finale of Poldark which ended with 4.9 million viewers.

Princess Diana once spied on Prince Charles while he had "phone sex talk" with his mistress on the toilet, a documentary has revealed.

A very compromising record resurfacesThe twentieth anniversary of the death of Diana causes the publication of hundreds of various recordings, until then remained secret.

The documentary Diana: In Her Own Words is centred on tapes recorded by her speech coach, ex-Coronation Street actor Peter Settelen, during vocal coaching lessons between September 1992 and December 1993 at Kensington Palace.

Once Diana was able to find love again with James Hewitt, whom she had an affair with, Charles apparently learned of the tryst somehow, but "didn't care" who his wife carried on with as it allowed him to get closer with Camilla without guilt.

"Which is exactly, I mean for real I know that it happened after five (years), I knew something was happening before that".

Wharfe — who has a book coming out next week on his time with the princess — says the documentary is a valuable reminder of Dianas role in “the reshaping of the monarchy.”.

The recordings are said to be aired in the upcoming doc Diana: In Her Own Words.

She fell in love at the age of 24, who she believed was later killed: The princess speaks about a romance with an officer in the Royal Protection Squad.

"It got so hard".

Journalist Chrissie Russell was impressed by Channel 4's efforts, tweeting: "I don't think anyone expected that to be so poignant, moving and beautifully done". But, there we are.

Diana went on to claim that she sought approval from her lover, continuing: "I was like a little girl in front of him the whole time, desperate for praise".

In the tapes, Diana explained: "The most extraordinary thing is we had this ghastly interview the day we announced our engagement and this ridiculous ITN man said, 'Are you in love?'"

Others said that despite not agreeing with the tapes being broadcast, they struggled to switch it off.

"Whereupon he leapt upon (me), he started kissing me and everything and I thought, 'Ahh, you know, this is not what people do, ' and he was all over me for the rest of the evening, followed me around, everything".
