Remembering the Life of Princess Diana

"He kept asking for the princess, saying, 'Where is she?"

English National Ballet director Tamara Rojo told them many popular productions were only staged because of the fundraising Diana had done in her lifetime, adding: "That's something we celebrate".

From her engagement to the Prince of Wales in 1981 until her death in 1997, Diana was a major presence on the world stage, often described as the "world's most photographed woman".

"She has made such a name, and her legacy has carried on". Diana was subjected to worldwide media scrutiny and was hounded by paparazzi at every step of her life. "We got straight to work to see who needed help and who was alive".

Princess Diana's sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, visited a growing memorial outside her former home, Kensington Palace.

Nick Serpell was working for the BBC when Princess Diana was tragically killed in a Paris auto crash on August 31, 1997. Her death shocked the world and triggered a flood of grief and anger.


And, like princess Diana loved the flowers and especially the roses, Harry and William have not hesitated to do the tour of the " garden white", converted to it by an army of gardeners and by Sean Harkin, who has been working here for nearly 30 years.

"Their courage to be openly vulnerable and to talk about these issues is a mark of how the royal family has changed and an example of the role a modern royal family can play in British life", it said in an editorial.

It's impossible not to think about when they were much younger boys, putting on the same courageous faces while mourners brought flowers and mementos to the palace gates all those years ago.

Gourmelon had only opened up about that night one time before, in the inquest into Diana's death in 2008. The brothers, with Prince William's wife, Catherine in tow, visited the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in London. Diana's partner at the time, Dodi Fayed, was in the auto with her and was also killed in the accident, leading many to believe that the Fayed family's enemies were responsible for their death.

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