From the archives: the aftermath of Princess Diana's death

Diana Down Under

To this day, it remains one of the most poignant remembrances of Diana in the wake of her passing.

During the interview, Gourmelon said he remembers trying to calm down Diana's bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, who was sitting in the front seat of the vehicle during the accident. Kate Middleton, very chic and, as usual, was also at her husband's side, to bring him all their support.

He said: "The vehicle was in a mess and we just dealt with it like any road accident".

Moreover, still today, people are succumbing to know about Wearing Eagles jacket, dancing with John Travolta & other memories at Kensington Palace Memorial Garden with Prince William and Prince Harry: 20th death anniversary.

Charlotte, who inherited her middle name from her dad's mum, might have also inherited her paternal grandmother's talent for dance, as Diana was known to love dancing and even took ballet lessons.

Xavier Gournmelon, a French firefighter who arrived at the crash scene within three minutes, held Diana's hand as she was in the back of the wrecked auto.

Earlier yesterday, Harry and William were joined by the Duchess of Cambridge for a poignant visit to White Garden in the grounds of the palace.

The fractures in the bond between the royals and the people that Diana's death revealed became the story then.

Diana's humanitarian efforts left an impact on the world, changing many people's lives for the better. Aired on her 20th death anniversary, the documentary gave viewers a peek into the week before her funeral and featured major figures at the time including former prime minister Tony Blair and senior royal aides.

On Twitter, Kensington Palace wrote: "The Duke and Prince Harry are grateful for the many flowers, letters and messages they have received about their mother". Diana, divorced from Prince Charles, with boyfriend Dodi Fayed, in a speeding limo, chased by paparazzi, rammed into a tunnel column.

"She will never be forgotten it's something that will be passed down through my whanau".
