Princess Diana: Her Continuing Legacy in the 20 Years After Her Death

Who will be the next king? Prince William or Prince Charles

When Diana was involved in a fatal Paris auto crash, on 31 August 1997, her children were just 12 and 15. At the time of their engagement in 1981, McCorquodale said, "I introduced them".

"I was brought up in the sense that, you know, if you got engaged to someone, you loved them", she said. Not long after, we got word from the Associated Press that Diana had died at the hospital.

"I'd have to say, when it becomes that personal as walking behind your mother's funeral cort├Ęge, it goes to another level of duty", he said.

What did the late Princess Diana think of her husband's choice in baby names for their children?

She used her position to champion some of the most marginalised groups in society, shaking hands with patients with AIDS and leprosy, who were viewed as pariahs at the time.

'Mental health has such bad implications, so I would rather that they're the representatives than someone who is on screen.

Prince William and Prince Harry open up about the moment they first found out about Princess Diana's death and defend their father and grandmother's handling of the tragedy in the new BBC documentary, "Diana, 7 Days".

Tina Brown, the journalist and author perhaps best known, still, for editing "Vanity Fair" and "The New Yorker", asked Blair in 2007 about what Diana's life signified.

America's closest examples to the royals are political dynasties such as the Kennedys and the Bushes, Wood said.

Tonnes of flowers were left outside her home at Kensington Palace, and more than a million people lined the streets of London to pay their last respects at her funeral.

Martingale Asset Management LP Boosts Stake in Union Pacific Corporation (UNP)
The railroad operator reported $1.45 earnings per share for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $1.39 by $0.06. At current levels, Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP) shares have been seen trading 0.73% away from the 20-day moving average.

According to a spokesperson for the royal brothers, the event is created to "put her character both as a mother and as someone who was very committed to charity work, into the spotlight". Now, after trying to figure out the truth about her life, she lives with a hidden identity.

One of Bulgaria's most popular newspapers, 24 Chasa, recently published five pages of stories and a large photo spread about the BBC's new documentary on Lady Diana and her sons. But now looking back I have learnt to understand what she gave to the world, and in the 1990s there weren't many public figures doing what she did'.

Wood added that Diana is still relevant and remembered fondly by people in Britain.

In her tribute to Diana, the queen said: "I, for one, believe that there are lessons to be drawn from her life and from the extraordinary and moving reaction to her death".

"The royals are supposed to be constitutionally neutral, and Charles has alienated a lot of people", Wood said.

But it is really a vehicle to finally allow the public what they've always craved - full access to mourn alongside Diana's sons.

"I sat there and this man walked in and I thought "well, I am quite impressed this time round".

"It encourages thousands of Americans to visit the United Kingdom and its great monuments, and you can visit quite a few of the royal palaces", he said.
