New recordings of her interview with voice coach Peter Settelen reveal Diana's sex life with her husband Prince Charles.

Friends and family of the late Princess Diana are urging a British TV network to scrap or alter an upcoming documentary on her life featuring tapes discussing her marriage and sex life that have never been broadcast on United Kingdom television.

Channel 4 said the tapes, which will be broadcast on Sunday, are an "important historical source".

They have since been shown in part in America, and were due to be part of a BBC documentary marking 10 years since her death, until an MP called for a ban on broadcasting the tapes while Princes William and Harry were alive.

There's especially not much we don't know about Princess Diana, who, since she was 19 years old, has had her life obsessively and consistently chronicled by the tabloids-and still does, even nearly 20 years after her death. "I'm coming to you, what do I do?' And she said 'I don't recognize what you ought to do, '" Diana said.

In which I say-and this is putting it politely-rubbish. The late Princess of Wales revealed these details to Settelen between 1992 and 1993 when she hired him for voice coaching.

Royal biographer Penny Junor told the newspaper that Charles and Diana's sons princes William and Harry would not want the tapes aired again, saying it would be "deeply hurtful to them".

Monckton, who holidayed with the princess in Greece only a fortnight before her death, will reportedly argue the confessional videos amounted to a form of "therapy" and to use them would be an "intrusion" and "outrage" which would betray the princess' privacy.

Kensington Palace said neither of Diana's sons, William or Harry, would be making any public comment.

The broadcast of Diana: In Her Own Words may well prove to be particularly devastating for the heir to the throne, prince Charles, whereas Lady Di comes back that hold the torments of her marriage with one whom she had met only thirteen times before the big day and with whom sexual relations were reduced to the strict minimum. "Combined with historical context and interviews with her closest confidants, this film provides a nuanced, multilayered portrait of the most famous woman in the world and a mother who has shaped the future line of the royal family", Channel 4 told the Mirror.

The explosive recordings have already aired in the U.S. more than a decade ago but were never screened in the United Kingdom after BBC shelved plans to broadcast the tapes in 2007.

When Prince Charles was trying to woo her as a teenager, she describes being "unimpressed".

Morton added Diana quietly endured the collapsing marriage and constant attempts to fit in with the royal family because she was struggling with an eating disorder, as well as the pressures that came with a high-profile role, where every public engagement was scrutinized by the press. It doesn't matter that it was 20-odd years ago.
