“I’ve never seen his show, so clearly, his dissatisfaction with him on camera before, it’s a most remarkable streak,” royal historian Piers Brendon told the documentary.

“It’s amazing to see this now, I’ve never seen it before,” adds writer Richard Kay.

Royal biographer Angela Levin said the interview was one of the first signs showing the difference and potential issues between the Spencers and the Windsors.

“Diana really couldn’t be a Spencer and show what she felt like she had to be a Windsor, to keep it all a secret,” she said.

“Charles was puzzled as to how to answer a question that concerned his emotions.

“Remember he was brought up by the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh to hide how they felt,” she added.

“You can actually see the light go out behind her eyes, she almost felt a world crumble,” added Diana biographer Andrew Morton.

This is an excerpt from Princess Diana’s infamous interview with Martin Bashir in which she discusses the feeling “unsupported” by the royal “establishment” has resurfaced and drew comparisons to the bombshell of Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey.

The Duchess of Sussex told the talk show host she “couldn’t be left alone” and confessed that she “didn’t want to be alive anymore” before claiming that the resource department Human Resources at Buckingham Palace had ignored her cry for help because she was not a “paid employee”.

She claimed she had been “silenced” by Buckingham Palace officials, who told her to always respond “without comment” as they would “protect” her, adding: “This is only once that we got married and it all started to really get worse that I came to understand that not only was I unprotected, but that they were willing to lie to protect other family members, but that they were unwilling to speak the truth to protect me and my husband.

Meghan told Oprah she then contacted one of Dian’a’s best friends because she didn’t feel supported by the palace, and said Harry had ‘saved [her] life ‘by agreeing to move to Los Angeles.

After Oprah’s two-hour interview that aired in the US on CBS on Sunday, US filmmaker Ava DuVernay shared a clip from Diana’s 1995 interview with BBC Panorama for Twitter.

In it, the Princess of Wales explains why she felt that the “establishment” in which she was married had “decided that [she’s] a non-runner ‘- because she did things’ differently’.

Prince Harry’s mother told reporter Martin Bashir: ‘Because I do things differently, because I don’t follow a rulebook, because I lead from the heart, not from the head, and even though that got me in trouble in my job, I understand this. But someone has to come out, love people and show it.

She adds that she suspects that she does not have “as many supporters in this environment as I do” because the Royal Family viewed her as a “threat of some kind” despite the fact that she is “there to do good. “and that she is” not a destructive person. “
