They open their hearts: Prince William and Harry talk about their mother's last call - and publish family photos that have never been shown.
August 31st marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana, who at the age of only 36 was killed in a car chase by paparazzi in a tunnel in Paris. In the TV documentary "Diana, Our Mother: Her Life And Legacy" produced for the occasion, her sons Prince William and Prince Harry speak openly about the death of their mother like never before.

Harry remembers her sense of cockiness. "She always said to me: You can be as naughty as you want, you just can't get caught doing it."
