                            Prince William blasted mum Diana after she infamously spoke about Prince Charles' affair with Camilla in her explosive 1995 tell-all interview

Prince William, the eldest son of late Princess Diana and Duke of Windsor Prince Charles, was apparently furious with his mother for her explosive 1995 tell-all interview where she spoke extensively about her failed marriage to the future monarch, according to MSN News.

Speaking to BBC's Martin Bashir in 1995, the Princess of Wales revealed all about her post-natal depression, self-harm, bulimia and her affair with James Hewitt.

Diana had also said that there were "three people" in her marriage. She, of course, meant herself, Prince Charles, and his then-alleged lover Camilla Parker Bowles. In a new documentary 'William and Harry: Brothers in Arms', Vanity Fair royal correspondent Katie Nicholl is seen telling Martin Bashir that, "William was exposed to everything from the interview and called his mother in a fury and a rage."

Nicholl recalled a conversation with Simone Simmons, a close friend of Diana's, for the new documentary. "[She told me] it was the one time William turned on his mother and said that he would never forgive Diana for what she'd done."

But 20 years after his mother's death, Prince William addressed the claims in the BBC documentary 'Diana, 7 Days' saying that, after all these years, he now understands why his mother chose to go public with her story the way she did. "I can understand — having sometimes been in those situations, you feel incredibly desperate and it is very unfair that things are being said that are untrue. The easiest thing to do is just say or go to the media yourself. Open that door. [But] once you've opened it you can ever close it again."

Two years after the controversial interview, the Princess of Wales lost her life in a fatal car crash that took place in Paris. Reports say that the late Princess' funeral was watched by an estimated two billion people.

Earlier, it was reported that Prince Charles was not happy when he realized that Princess Diana was far more popular than him. After their July 1981 wedding, Charles realized that Diana was unlike any other woman. She soon became one of the most photographed and talked about person in the royal family.

Lady Elizabeth Anson, party planner and a cousin to the Queen, said that Diana found her way into the hearts of royal fans quite easily. “[Diana] sort of metamorphosed into a very, very elegant blonde beauty. They did a visit to Wales which was the beginning of, for Prince Charles, realizing, 'They’ve come out to see my wife, they haven’t come out to see me'," she said.

While Charles felt he was being outstaged by Diana, after Prince William's marriage to Kate Middleton, he seems to have the same feelings about the Middletons. In the unauthorized biography of the Prince of Wales, 'Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion, and Defiance of Prince Charles', author Tom Bower claims that Charles felt “usurped” by the Middletons and “isolated” from grandchildren Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
