There will also be a community chat and video feature that will allow users to share experiences in realtime.

Additionally, users can watch more than 40 exclusive interviews with friends, artists, designers, and close collaborators to Princess Diana to provide a more authentic and unique insight into her life.

“With the sudden rise of COVID-19 virus forcing us to practice ‘social distancing,’ we are making access to Princess Diana’s Museum completely free for one month,” Renae Plant and Livinio Stucyck, founders at The Princess & The Platypus Foundation said in the release.

“This will not only help take people’s minds off of all the bad news out there but it will help them connect with each other since users can interact in the museum environment and give back in Diana’s honor.”
