Video: Prince Harry Condemns Paparazzi Who Photographed Princess Diana As She Was Dying

Prince Harry is speaking out for the first time about the paparazzi who photographed Princess Diana the night she lay dying at the backseat of her car.

The 32-year-old sat down for an interview with BBC for the upcoming documentary which commemorates the 20th anniversary of her death on Aug. 31, 1997. During the interview, the royal looked really emotional and his voice shook as he recalled the way his mother died.

As you likely recall, Diana was tragically killed in a car accident as she drove through the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris while being chased by paparazzi. In 2008, following her inquest, it was ruled that the accident was caused by the gross negligence of her driver, Henri Paul, who was driving drunk, as well as the paparazzi, who were chasing them through the tunnel.

Harry, was only 12 at the time but was aware of the paparazzi's involvement in the death of his mother.

He said in the teaser for the documentary:
"One of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people who chased her into the tunnel were the same people who were taking photographs of her while she was still dying in the backseat of her car. William and I know that. We've been told that numerous times by people that know that was the case."
He continued, "She had quite a severe head injury, but she was very much alive on the backseat, and those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, were taking photographs of her dying on the back seat. And then those photographs made their way back to news desks in this country."
