Fireman who treated Princess Diana after vehicle crash reveals her last words

"She battled to break out of it and she was just starting to have her own identity and sense of independence when she died".

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".

The singer posted a throwback photo to Instagram showing a much younger version of himself posing with Diana before her death.

"She was very friendly and helpful, chatting to the children", he said, recalling how she helped one child into her coat "just like a mum".

Princess Diana was just 36 when she died miles from the Eiffel Tower in a fatal vehicle accident. They have her empathy and compassion which they have put to good use, whether as an air ambulance pilot in William's case, or through Harry's pioneering Invictus Games.

"Together they will reflect on the significant achievement of the princess, and the legacy of her work which continues to resonate with so many today", it said. "She really wanted to know about us she listen she was special and she made us feel special too".

Her admirers began paying tribute to Diana at the time she died before dawn, placing candles shaped in the letter "D" at the gates of the London palace that had been her home. Her bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, was injured but lived.

Head Gardener Sean Harkin led the royals on a walk around the grounds and pointed out a number of the late Princess' favourite flowers on the way, from lilies to white roses.
