We wonder if she's turning over in her grave right now.

Prince William had some choice words about his late mother Princess Diana.

The royal opened up about how his mum would've been as a grandparent had she still been alive.

In the upcoming documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, the Prince spoke about his mother.

While Di never got a chance to meet her grandchildren Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the future King opened up about how he thought she would have been like as a grandmother.

“She’d love the children to bits, but she’d be an absolute nightmare," he said.

"She’d come and go and she’d come in probably at bath time…cause an amazing…scene, bubbles everywhere, bathwater all over the place, and then leave.”

The 20th anniversary of her passing is coming up and William wants to make sure his children know about their grandmother's legacy.

In the film, he reveals that he speaks of his mother to his two children often.

"We've got more photos up 'round the house now of her and we talk about her a bit and stuff," he shared.

"It's hard because obviously Catherine didn't know her, so she cannot really provide that…level of detail."

"So, I do regularly, (when) putting George or Charlotte to bed, talk about her and just try to remind them that there are two grandmothers — there were two grandmothers — in their lives," he said.

"It's important that they know who she was and that she existed."

The 35-year-old also spoke about his final time speaking to the Princess.

"Harry and I were in a desperate rush to say goodbye, you know, 'see you later,'" he said with regret.

"If I'd known now, obviously, what was going to happen, I wouldn't have been so blasé about it and everything else. But that phone call sticks in my mind, quite heavily."

"Looking back on it now, it's incredibly hard," Diana's younger son Prince Harry added.

"I'll have to sort of deal with that for the rest of my life. Not knowing that was the last time I was going to speak to my mum. How differently that conversation would have panned out if I'd had even the slightest inkling her life was going to be taken that night."
