The British channel plans to release the 'Diana tapes' which were discovered in a police raid from Paul Burrell's house in 2001.

The content of the tapes was so controversial back then that it was not allowed to be aired in Britain.

People's Princess

However, the tapes have already made an entry into America as part of a documentary aired in 2004.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Harry released new photographs of their mother, Princess Diana, to mark the 20th anniversary of her death.

Camilla Parker Bowles....

The tapes were made to improve Diana's public speaking where she is openly talking about her private life.

She used the tapes to talk about her relationship with her husband Prince Charles, their sex life and Prince Charles affair with his now second wife Camilla Parker Bowles.

'Worst day of my life'

Diana calls her wedding day as ?the worst day of my life? as she struggled to fit into a conventional "fairy princess" image constructed for her.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Harry released three photos from Princess Diana?s personal photo album recently to coincide with a documentary to be aired on British television called Diana: Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.

Prince Charles: Very odd...

In the tape, the princess says that she and Prince Charles had only met 13 times before they got married.

"He'd ring me up every day for a week and then he wouldn't speak to me for three weeks. Very odd."

"And the thrill when he used to ring up was so immense and intense."

?If I could write my own script"

Speaking about her disturbed relationship due to Prince Charles extra-marital affair, she says: ?If I could write my own script I would have my husband go away with his woman and never come back."

Charles and me...

Talking about her sex life with the prince she says,''there was never a requirement for it from him."

Prince William and Harry

The new documentary will now show Diana's life which has never been aired earlier in Britain.

As Prince William and Prince Harry come out to discuss details about their mother, Channel 4, which has the rights to the tapes has decided to release them to the public.
