Today, on August 31, the world remembers “the People's Princess” and commemorates the 20th anniversary of her tragic death.

Twenty years ago, Diana, Princess of Wales was killed in a car crash in Paris, leaving behind two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, and sending a wave of grief around the world.
