We're not crying, you're crying! Kensington Palace just gave us all the feels by releasing new photos of Princess Diana with her young sons, in honor of the new ITV documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.

The 90-minute film is being released for the 20-year anniversary of the princess's death, and it is the first time that Prince William and Prince Harry have publicly opened up about their relationship with their mother.

The Instagram account for the royals shared these intimate family photos, and in case it wasn't clear already, Diana's life was one cut incredibly too short.

  • Princess Diana has such a legacy as the People's Princess that it's easy to forget that she was a mom, first and foremost.

    This photo of Diana and William could be any of us holding our children and sharing a smile. Well, any of us rocking amazing '80s hair, that is.

  • She kept a personal photo album full of pictures of her little family away from the spotlight.

    In the new documentary, Will and Harry spend time looking through the old photos, jogging memories of their childhood that they had blacked out in their grief over their mother's death.

  • Diana had an unbreakable bond with her sons, to the point that Harry actually looks happy that his mum was hugging him openly.

    In the film, Harry shares, "She was our mum. She still is our mum. And of course, as a son I would say this, she was the best mum in the world. She smothered us with love, that's for sure."

  • Just look at these adorable little boys.

    William and Harry were public figures from the moment they were born, but it's clear that Diana made sure she had intimate moments with her sons.

  • She was a princess, but she was also just a mom.

    She is greatly missed, but no one misses her more than her sons. We're so glad that William and Harry have decided to speak about her as a mother, and give us one more aspect to admire about her amazing life.
