Princess Diana’s 25th death anniversary observed with flowers, tributes in UK
Well-wishers left flowers and other tributes on Wednesday, August 31at princess Diana’s former London home and above the Paris road tunnel where she lost her life, to mark the 25th anniversary of her death.
The former Lady Diana Spencer, whose fairytale marriage to Prince Charles captivated the world until it publicly unravelled with revelation of infidelity and divorce, died in a car crash in the French capital on August 31, 1997.
A trickle of well-wishers laid flowers, flags and photographs for the self-styled “queen of people’s hearts” at the gates of Kensington Palace, and at the Place Diana, above the Pont de I’Alma tunnel.
At the Spencer family home, Althorp House, where Diana is buried in a lead-lined coffin on a secluded island on the estate, her brother Charles Spencer lowered the Union Jack to half mast.
