  1. Kay has such a soft way of announcing the news. It was quite a sad almost motherly message to us all.
    Diana will always be England’s Princess and the world’s hero. She looks down on her sons, grandsons and granddaughter. And makes sure we are all protected. She was always an angel from birth x

  2. “Princess Diana has in fact been in killed in that car accident”. Anyone who watched this back then must have been really shocked at hearing those words. RIP Diana ❤️

  3. Alot of corruption…. big cover up but people will never know the truth. I was 13 when this happened and remember how huge it was. Diana was a remarkable lady and was very unfortunate. Somebody planned this and covered it up

  4. I remember this. I was fourteen at the time. I talked to my mom and she said that she used up an entire box of tissues in an hour crying. She came from Belgium and she said she remembered stopping on the train in London and this man gave her this doll which she lost on the train. I wish that she hadn't lost it because I would have loved to have had it. But anyway, I remember when this happened and it was a shock even at such a young age. May she rest in peace.

  5. I was 16 years of age at the time. It was afternoon in Australia. I was in my room when my brother came up and said, "Princess Diana has died". I ran downstairs and looked at the TV, and it was live footage of the wreckage of her car being removed from the tunnel. I went outside to tell my dad who was at his car. He'd heard it on the radio, and he didn't seem to care.
