Prince William and Prince Harry will honor the 20th anniversary of their mother's tragic death by opening up about the People's Princess for a new authorized documentary.

The film, which will air in the United States on HBO, will feature interviews with Diana's two sons, close friends, and family members, some of whom "will be speaking about her publicly for the first time," according to the Sunday Times.

The documentary will also highlight Diana's philanthropic efforts including her work with HIV and AIDS patients.

“This film will show Princess Diana in a way she has never been seen before, through the eyes of the two people who knew her best,” said executive producer Nick Kent.

While an exact release date has yet to be made public, the film is predicted to premiere later this year.

Given the anniversary's significance, the HBO film is just one of several projects centering around the late princess this year. A four-hour retrospective made in partnership with People magazine is planned to air in August on ABC. "Our audience has an insatiable appetite for news about the royal family; in fact, they are just as fascinated today as they were when Lady Diana was first introduced to the world back in 1981," People’s Editor Jess Cagle said.

Prince William and Prince Harry have also commissioned a statue at Kensington Palace in honor of their mother and hope to unveil it later this year.
