Crowds back at palace to remember Diana 20 years on

Prince William and Prince Harry stand outside Kensington Palace to honor their late mother's memorial

"She battled to break out of it and she was just starting to have her own identity and sense of independence when she died".

Diana undertook royal duties on behalf of the Queen and represented her at many functions overseas. In the Instagram post above, you can see Diana and Travolta cutting a rug, with the President in the background.

The weeks before the anniversary of Diana's death have been met with reflection in Britain as the public remembers "the people's princess" and considers her contributions to the country and the monarchy. "It was this odd spiritual connection this very English girl had with such a different culture and I think America and Pakistan were the two places where she felt most at home".

"Thinking of the wonderful times we spent with Diana and the great joy she brought into our lives and all those who knew her", Emanuel tweeted.

Linda Bigelbach, 61, from Saint Paul in Minnesota, said: "I remember her wedding day and I remember the day she died".

In November 1985, President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan welcomed Diana and her husband, Prince Charles, to the White House.

Twenty years ago today, in 1997, Princess Diana was killed in a tragic vehicle crash in Paris.


Nick Serpell was working for the BBC when Princess Diana was tragically killed in a Paris vehicle crash on August 31, 1997.

A sea of flowers covers the front of Buckingham Palace, Sunday morning, September 7, 1997 in London, the day after the funeral for Princess Diana.

Twenty years after the demise of princess Diana, her sons princes Harry and William have paid a last tribute to Kensington.

"The woman, who I later found out was Princess Diana, was on the floor in the back". To be honest I thought she would live.

Diana's memory is now worth millions of pounds a year in accessories, souvenirs and exhibitions.

After the tour of the garden, Prince William and Prince Harry walked along the gates of Kensington Palace and viewed some of the tributes mourners left for their late mother.

"She will never be forgotten it's something that will be passed down through my whanau".
