15 Years Since the Death of Princess Diana
It has been 15 years since Diana, Princess of Wales, was killed in a horrific car crash in a tunnel near the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Also killed were her Egyptian-born companion, Dodi Fayed, and their driver, Henri Paul. Bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, the only one wearing a seat-belt, survived.
Their Mercedes was being chased by paparazzi and tests later showed Paul's blood-alcohol level was triple the legal limit for driving.
Diana's sudden death at 36 unleashed an outpouring of stunned grief around the world, culminating in a televised funeral at Westminster Abbey that was watched by millions around the globe.
