In season 4 of The Crown, which is fast approaching, the dramatic focus will be on Lady Diana and her marriage to Prince Charles. And while fascination in Diana’s life has never gone away, The Crown will most likely boost interest still further as well as bringing her life to a new, younger audience.
If you want to get the truth behind the fiction, however, then watch True Royalty TV’s brilliant collection of Diana documentaries that cover everything about her life, including her courtship with Prince Charles, their marriage, and her rise to worldwide fashion icon and humanitarian.
So, as we gear up for the latest season of The Crown, here are some highly recommended documentaries on True Royalty TV that provide the context, the truth and the backstory.
