Can you believe it's been almost two whole decades since the People's Princess tragically passed away?

To commemorate this major anniversary, People has teamed up with ABC to produce a two-part documentary about Princess Diana, the late British royal and humanitarian, and it sounds fascinating.

According to People, the four-hour special, airing in prime-time on ABC this August, will explore Di's legacy and feature new interviews with people who knew her well.

"Our audience has an insatiable appetite for news about the royal family," said People's Editor-in-Chief, Jess Cagle. Diana has appeared on the cover of People 57 times — more than anyone else in the magazine's history. 

"(People) are just as fascinated today as they were when Lady Diana was first introduced to the world back in 1981," Cagle added.

Diana was fatally injured in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997, an incident that's the subject of numerous conspiracy theories. She was just 36-years-old and left two young sons behind.

"Even 20 years after her untimely death, Princess Diana’s legacy continues to impact our world," said Robert Mills, ABC's Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials and Late Night. 

"Our special will honor her memory and all the good that she did in her tragically brief life," Mills explained. "Our partners at People are perfect to tell this story as they’ve extensively covered her life throughout the years."
