Princess Diana’s Death: 18 Years Later

On Aug. 31, 1997, millions of people all over the world woke up to the news that Princess Diana–alongside her companion Dodi Fayed and their driver Henri Paul–had died as a result of a fatal car crash in Paris, France. An inquest attributed the crash to the grossly negligent driving by Paul, as well as paparazzi chasing their vehicle… just to get a mere photo of the princess and Fayed.

It has been 18 years since that tragic day and many revel on the fact that she would be so proud of her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as her two grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

“I like to be a free spirit. Some don’t like that, but that’s the way I am.” ~Princess Diana (July 1, 1961 – Aug. 31, 1997).
