It has been over two decades since Princess Diana, one of the most adored royals, passed away.
The mother-of-two’s passing on August 31, 1997, came as a heartbreaking shock to millions of people who adored her for her humility, elegance, approachability and elegance.
While she was not the same from what royalty was perceived to be, she became the embodiment of everything that people needed in a noblewoman.
Despite all the problems in her life, the mother-of-two made it her mission to help people in need. She immediately received the title People’s Princess.
Princess Diana was laid to rest one week after the car crash that took her life.
Thousands of people attend the ceremony in Westminster Abbey where she was transported to from Kensington Palace.
Prince William and Prince Harry walked behind their mother’s coffin, joined by Prince Charles, Prince Philip, and Earl Charles Spencer.
More than a million lined the streets laying flowers along the path.
The Queen was seen paying respects to her daughter-in-law while bowing her head.
Royal veteran photographer Arthur Edwards remembers how people gathered outside Westminster Abbey, sobbing as Princess Diana’s coffin passed them.
He said: “When I stood outside the hospital as the coffin came out I broke down. It was really moving, I suddenly realized it was all over.”
He added: “I saw that coffin moving and I was really upset. And, of course, on the day of the funeral I’ll never forget that when the coffin went past me at Westminster Abbey, all I could hear was the click-clock of the horses’ shoes and just people sobbing all around me.
“Not crying, sobbing. And I remember this woman calling out ‘God bless you, Harry.’ And I’ll never forget that. This little boy walking behind his mother’s coffin and I just thought ‘My God, God bless you, Harry.’”
