How do you honour someone whose been gone for two decades?

That’s the difficult challenge Prince William and Harry have been tasked with as the anniversary of their mother’s death draws closer.

And now, a new report from The Sunday Times has revealed Princess Diana’s adoring boys will remember her with two television documentaries.

According to the report, the Princes have commissioned the BBC and ITV to create two special programmes, which will be aired later this year.

The Sunday Times claims the siblings will both give emotional interviews and share touching memories from their mother’s life.

"The Duke and Prince Harry have selected close friends and family members to speak about Diana, and some will be speaking about her publicly for the first time,” a source told the paper.

Princess Diana's sons want to celebrate their mother's memory with two in-depth documentaries.

It’s also believed many of Diana’s good friends and family will take part in the TV specials, including her brother Lord Spencer and her good friend and Prince George’s godmother, Julie Samuel.

The Sunday Times report the first offering will air on ITV in July and will examine the Princess of Wales’ inspirational humanitarian work and ensuing legacy.

In August, the BBC will screen an in-depth look at the horrific 1997 Paris car crash and the global outpouring of grief which quickly followed.

In the lead up to the 20-year anniversary, William and Harry have also launched National Kindness Day and commissioned a statue of the 36-year-old to be erected at Kensington Palace.

Last year Prince Harry, who was just 12 when Diana died, addressed his mother's passing in a raw interview with People.

"When she died, there was a gaping hole, not just for us but also for a huge amount of people across the world,” the 32-old said.

"If I can try and fill a very small part of that, then job done. I will have to, in a good way, spend the rest of my life trying to fill that void as much as possible. And so will William."

The boys were just 15 and 12 respectively when their mother died in a car crash.

In January, Prince William confided in a young girl at a child bereavement event who had also lost a parent.

"Do you know what happened to me? You know I lost my mummy when I was very young too. I was 15 and my brother was 12. So we lost our mummy when we were young as well.e. And so will William," the father-of-two told the child.

"It's very important to talk about it, very, very important."

The legacy of Diana, pictured with William in 1982, still burns bright in her sons.
