Prince Harry: Instead of Helping, Paparazzi Were Taking Photos of Princess Diana "Dying on the Back Seat"

A new documentary reveals the most difficult parts of coming to terms with her accident.

Princes William and Harry have been baring their souls about Princess Diana for a pair of British documentaries that are airing in the United States. They confirmed that their late mother was naughty and cool in all the best ways in Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, which was produced by ITV and premiered Stateside on HBO.

Hot on the heels of that documentary comes Diana, 7 Days, which comes to NBC from the BBC and also features the two princes speaking candidly, including about the fatal car crash that took her life.

Prince Harry, now 32-years-old, was just 12 when the accident occurred in 1997. He's remarkably poised when discussing how the paparazzi pursued her car and then took pictures of her dying instead of helping.

“I think one of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people that chased her into the tunnel were the same people that were taking photographs of her while she was still dying on the back seat of the car. We’ve been told that numerous times by people that know, that was the case," says Prince Harry in Diana, 7 Days. "She’d had quite a severe head injury, but she was very much still alive on the back seat," he continues. "Those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, were taking photos of her dying on the backseat. And then those photographs made their way to news desks in this country."

Diana, 7 Days premieres on September 1 on NBC.
