With this month marking the anniversary of her death, Princes William and Harry have been opening up for the first time about their mother's death and how it affected them.

The news coverage marking twenty years since the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in a vehicle crash in Paris has dominated the news narrative in the United Kingdom throughout this month.
