"This summer, it will be 20 years since the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.To mark this significant anniversary, CBS News will deliver a broadcast that looks at the impact she had on Britain, the monarchy and the world," the network said in a press release.
"Princess Diana captured the hearts and imaginations of a global audience that was mesmerized by her fairytale story, one they desperately wanted to believe, but it was not to be. Many of those hearts were broken when she died on Aug. 31, 1997 in a horrific car crash in the Pont de I'Alma road tunnel in Paris."
