Diana, Princess of Wales

Diana, Princess of Wales, (1 July 1961 – 31 August 1997) was the first wife of HRH Charles, Prince of Wales. Their sons, Princes William and Henry are second and third in line to the thrones of the United Kingdom and fifteen other Commonwealth Realms.

A public figure from the announcement of her engagement to Prince Charles, Diana remained the focus of near-constant media scrutiny in the United Kingdom and around the world up to and during her marriage, and after her subsequent divorce. Her sudden death in a car crash was followed by a spontaneous and prolonged show of public mourning. Contemporary responses to Diana’s life and legacy have been mixed but a popular fascination with the Princess endures. The long awaited Coroner’s Inquest concluded in April 2008 that Diana had been unlawfully killed by the driver and the following paparazzi.

Diana died after a car crash, on 31 August 1997 in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris along with Dodi Al-Fayed and the acting security manager of the Hotel Ritz Paris, Henri Paul, who was instructed to drive the hired Mercedes-Benz through Paris in order to elude the paparazzi. Their black Mercedes-Benz S280 crashed into the tunnel. The two-lane tunnel was built without metal barriers in front of the pillars. None of the four occupants wore seat belts.

Despite lengthy resuscitation attempts, including internal cardiac massage, she died at 4 a.m. local time. Her funeral on 6 September 1997 was broadcast and watched by an estimated 2.5 billion people worldwide.

    First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
