Princess Diana's fatal car crash was an event that shook the world and a day that no one will forget. TLC will explore Princess Diana's life in an emotional, three-hour special that will tell the story of the "People's Princess" with exclusive footage, never-before-seen interviews, and excerpts from Princess Diana's personal journal. Princess Diana: Tragedy or Treason premieres Monday, July 31 at 8/7c.

Not only a humanitarian and style icon, Princess Diana redefined what it meant to be royal. The world got to know her as a young, shy girl and watched her evolve into a fiercely independent woman beloved for bucking the norm and creating her own royal path. Princess Diana: Tragedy or Treason will take a deeper look at her life, the events leading up to the tragic night that ended it and, explore several conspiracy theories surrounding her death.

Here's what we're excited to see during the special:

  1. The special will share new details about Princess Diana's challenging life behind the royal curtain with Prince Charles and how protective of a mother she was to her two sons.
  2. Viewers will hear exclusively from famed personal Princess Diana biographer Andrew Morton.
  3. Other interviews include two of her personal friends, Mary Robertson and James Colthurst to shed light on Diana's personal life.
  4. The first doctor on the scene of the car crash Dr. Frederic Mailliez shares what he saw at the crash.
  5. Diana's bodyguard Ken Wharfe tells us about the Diana he knew.
  6. Conspiracy theorist author and actor Richard Belzer gives insight into exactly what happened that tragic night.
