Princess Diana was perhaps the most famous and beloved woman in the world when she died on August 31, 1997, at age 36-years old. She’d secured a place in the hearts of millions, and is still known as the People’s Princess decades after her untimely demise.
In 1981, with nearly a billion people watching on television, Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, married an English schoolteacher (who also happened to be born into a British royal family). Princess Diana dated regularly before and after marriage. After a long separation and a divorce from Charles, the Princess of Wales had other lovers. On August 31, 1997, a tragic car accident in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris claimed her life. Henri Paul, the driver, and Dodi Al Fayed, Diana’s lover, also perished. Only the bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, survived.
