Long before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sat down for their tell-all with Oprah, Princess Diana participated in one of the most controversial interviews the royal family has ever encountered. 

• Princess Diana's problematic 1995 interview with Martin Bashir of the BBC is the focal point of the documentary Diana: The Interview That Shook the World.

• The film is set to appear on Netflix.

• In other royal news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah has garnered over 5,000 complaints.

The royally-obsessed might want to consider a Netflix account if they do not have one already. On April 11, fans will be able to stream Diana: The Interview That Shook the World. It focuses on her 1995 talk with BBC's Martin Bashir, which largely spotlighted her crumbling marriage to Prince Charles and what it was like to be in the spotlight.

To this day, the 26-year-old meeting remains contentious not only due to the revelations but the way in which Martin conducted himself. According to Vanity Fair, he and the broadcasting company lied to get the information they wanted out of Lady Di. Candid, frank discussions were had, and Princess Diana even admitted, “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded,” alluding to Prince Charles' affair with the now Duchess Camilla.

This isn't the streaming services' only dip into royal waters. Later this year, the platform will stream Diana: The Musical before its Broadway release. Originally, the show was supposed to kick off in 2020 but closed due to the Coronavirus, along with the rest of the Great White Way. Fans can catch it on Netflix in October and on stage (hopefully) by December, should live productions be permitted to safely resume in New York.
