Netflix indefinitely postpones 'Diana: The Interview that Shocked the World' documentary

·2 min read

Netflix has indefinitely postponed a documentary about Princess Diana's famous 1995 BBC interview following news of Prince Philip's death Friday.

"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," Buckingham Palace's announcement read. "His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle."

"Diana: The Interview that Shocked the World" was scheduled to premiere Sunday, but has been pushed back to an undisclosed date, Netflix confirmed. The interview was released last year in several countries, but Netflix licensed it for streaming in the U.S., U.K. and Canada starting Sunday.

The 90-minute documentary is focused on Princess Diana's "Panorama" interview, where she spoke candidly from Kensington Palace about her failed marriage to Prince Charles, confirmed rumors of his infidelity with his eventual second wife Camilla Parker Bowles ("Well, there were three of us in the marriage, so it was a bit crowded"), and confirmed her own five-year affair with a former lover, James Hewitt.

"Diana: The Interview that Shocked the World" was scheduled to premiere April 11, 2021, but has been pushed back to an undisclosed date, Netflix confirmed.

"Diana: The Interview that Shocked the World" includes appearances from the princess's butler, former BBC royal correspondent, Jennie Bond, former press spokesperson for the Queen Dickie Arbiter and more, according to IMDb.

In the bombshell interview, Diana also spoke openly about her past struggles with depression and bulimia, and expressed frustrations with the palace and the media. She raised doubts about whether Prince Charles could adapt to what she called "the top job" as future king, but she was clear about how she saw her own future.

"I always knew I’d never be the next queen," she said at another point. "I’d like to be a queen of people’s hearts."

The "Panorama" interview was so shocking to so many that Prince Charles' mother, Queen Elizabeth II, wrote to the then-separated couple, urging them to divorce. They were officially divorced in August 1996, a year before her death in a Paris car crash. She was 36.
