PRINCESS Diana was slammed by her own son Prince William in a furious phone call, where the Duke of Cambridge said he’d “never forgive” his mum.
Princess Diana stunned the world when she opened up about her marriage to Prince Charles in a bombshell 1995 interview with BBC Panorama’s Martin Bashir.
The Princess of Wales infamously said there were “three people” in her marriage – referencing the Duke of Cornwall’s affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
But the startlingly open interview left the Royal couple’s son Prince William furious.
In Amazon Prime documentary William and Harry: Brothers in Arms, Vanity Fair’s Royal Correspondent Kate Nicholl revealed how the Duke of Cambridge reacted to the interview.
“William called his mother in a fury and a rage”

“William was exposed to everything from the interview and called his mother in a fury and a rage,” Kate said.
The journalist then recalled a conversation she had with Diana’s close friend Simone Simmons, who said: “[She told me] it was the one time William turned on his mother and said, that he would never forgive Diana for what she’d done.”
William later admitted he understood why Diana chose to go public in BBC documentary, Diana, 7 Days.
“I can understand – having sometimes been in those situations, you feel incredibly desperate and it is very unfair that things are being said that are untrue,” he said.
“The easiest thing to do is just to say or go to the media yourself. Open that door. [But] once you’ve opened it you can never close it again.”
Two years after the infamous interview, Diana was tragically killed when a car she was in crashed in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris, France.
Her death shocked the world and more than 2.5billion people watched her funeral in 1997.
Shockingly though, Daily Star Online exclusively revealed how a group in Manchester recreated her funeral by driving her “coffin” in a taxi in September.
