More About This show

In her first years as a royal, Princess Diana was as fascinated with the press as they were with her. She went on to grace every magazine cover and quickly became the most photographed woman in the world. But over the years, the relationship changed, becoming more invasive and in many opinions, dangerous. Decades after her fatal car crash in Paris, we reveal the inside story of Diana's entanglement with the paparazzi, presented through rarely seen footage and testimony from those who protected her and those who photographed her.
