Princess Diana of Wales captivated the world with her philanthropic attitude and royal affairs. She was Charles, Prince of Wales, first wife, and the mother of Princes William and Harry respectively. After her divorce in 1996, Diana remained in the spotlight, and her relationship with Dodi Fayed, son of Mohamed Al-Fayed, and the man who perished with her in the infamous car collision, was highly documented by international media.

On August 31, 1997, Diana, who was 36 at the time, and Fayed suffered a fatal collusion while their driver, Henri Paul, was fleeing the paparazzi in Paris. The day after Princess Diana's death, news spread around the globe.

In the wake of Princess Diana's crash, news about her legacy, her ties to the British Royal Family, her dedication to activism, and her relationship with her own family were covered in countries from as far as Australia to the United States to her home in the Untied Kingdom.
