When and how did Princess Diana die?
Princess Diana died on August 31, 1997, after suffering fatal injuries in a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of her death, with many events being held in her memory.
Her companion Dodi Fayed and driver and security guard Henri Paul were also killed in the crash. Her bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones survived with horrific injuries.
In the days following her death a sea of flowers and tributes were left outside the gates of Kensington Palace in an enormous outpouring of public grief.
Her funeral was held on September 6, 1997, at Westminster Abbey and was shown on British television, attracting an audience of 32.1million viewers.
An inquest held in London concluded in 2008 that the Princess had been unlawfully killed, blaming the crash on grossly negligent driving by Paul and the pursuing paparazzi.
