CBS is the latest network revisiting the life and death of Princess Diana.

The late public figure will be the subject of a two-hour primetime special set to air in May on the network.

CBS This Morning's Gayle King will anchor Princess Diana: Her Life — Her Death — The Truth, which comes ahead of the 20th anniversary of her tragic death. The special will explore her impact on Britain, the monarch and the world and promises to put to rest the many questions that continue to surround the incident that took her life.

Princess Diana, mother of Princes William and Harry, died on Aug. 31, 1997, from injuries sustained in a car crash in Paris. 

The telecast will dive deep into the four independent investigations that took place in two countries and will feature new interviews with those who knew her best while also using CBS News' archives of Princess Diana.

Susan Zirinsky will exec produce the special, which hails from the team behind CBS News' long-running 48 Hours.

CBS' special is one of several upcoming projects about Princess Diana. ABC News recently partnered with People magazine for a two-night, four-hour special about her life and death that will air in August. The forthcoming second season of the Ryan Murphy FX anthology drama Feud will center on Princess Diana and Prince Charles. 

Princess Diana: Her Life — Her Death — The Truth will premiere Monday, May 22, at 8 p.m. on CBS.
