It's been nearly 20 years since Princess Diana died, and now CBS is planning a primetime special surrounding her tragic passing.

Deadline reports that the two-hour special, Princess Diana: Her Life-Her Death—The Truth, will be anchored by Gayle King, and will air May 22 at 8 p.m. on CBS. Produced by the 48 Hours news team, the special will give viewers an in-depth look at Diana's life, as well as her death on August 31, 1997.

After Diana's death, four separate investigations were launched in two different countries—and the CBS special will include those findings, as well as interviews with people who were close to Diana.

Fans of Lady Di will have plenty of opportunities to learn about and celebrate her legacy this year, as ABC is planning a two-night, four-hour miniseries about the late princess which is set to air in August.
