The Princess of Wales. Lady Di. The People’s Princess. Regardless of her title, Diana Spencer was a phenomenon during her life and still continues to be to this day, over twenty years after her death. She was and still is arguably one of the most iconic and adored public figures in history. Directed by Ed Perkins, The Princess, tells her story as it has never been told before.

Premiering at Sundance, Ed Perkins' documentary retells the story of Princess Diana exclusively through contemporaneous archive, news footage, and other public records, creating a bold and immersive narrative of her life and death.

Perkins opts not to present a dramatised portrait of the people's princess, littered with long-view commentary and investigative journalism, but instead documents the story as it happened publicly. Perkins' takes us through the new media's version of the events of Diana's life - revealing how the story skews in various different ways. The Princess illuminates the public's attitude to the monarchy, then and now, and is a devastating reminder of the remafications of rabid obsession.

"Ed Perkins' remarkable film eschews many of the trappings we've come to associate with the modern documentary, and is all the better for it." IndieWire

"Addictive." Variety 
"Absolutely stunning." The Art Fuse 
"The most well-done documentary on her I have ever seen." Popsugar
