British princes mark anniversary of Diana's death with low-key tribute

British princes mark anniversary of Diana's death with low-key tributeā€

Xavier Gourmelon, 50, attended to the Princess of Wales at the scene of the auto accident in Paris in August 1997 and says he heard the late princess' final words as she lay in the wreckage of the vehicle.

At first, it was not clear how seriously she was hurt, and she was said to be in hospital with a concussion and a wound to her thigh.

Her death left people the world over devastated. "Also we all knew what it was like to deal with a man who wasn't worth a damn". She was my generation and I just felt a connection.

On the anniversary of her death a month later, a memorial service attended by Queen Elizabeth was held at the Guards' Chapel at Wellington barracks near Buckingham Palace.

Outside the palace, Britons left flowers of their own on Tuesday.

Britain's Prince William, his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, attend an event at the memorial garden in Kensington Palace. The garden has been planted in white and dedicated to the princess.

It has been carefully designed with the essence of Diana at its heart, filled with foliage and flowers which were inspired by aspects of her life, style and imagine.

The brothers commemorated the heartbreaking 20-year-anniversary of the tragic passing of their mother (who was just 36 at the time) just as they did as teenage boys - making a touching parallel between the two devastating days.

'The princess died under the same spotlight under which she'd lived most of her life, fleeing with her friend Dodi Fayed from the press photographers who dogged her every step'.

Diana also visited Casey House that year.

"I really did expect more people to be here, maybe more will come in the afternoon", she adds. You could see the compassion in those iconic photos of her walking through active minefields in Angola and holding the children who had been injured by them.

Harkin says he chose white because it was a reoccurring motif throughout Diana's life.

It was a moment when much of the country seemed united in grief - a time that her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, have said they struggled to understand.

By now a doctor had arrived and said she had to be got out of the vehicle. "She might be going out for a jog or a walk in the park and if it was early and it was quiet, she would have a chat with them". "When I meet people like you all here today, I am encouraged to believe that the future will, after all, be something to look forward to", she told a crowd in Adelaide.

The Sun reported that Mansfield opened up about his doubts on the real cause of Di's death through the new documentary in the U.S. In the show, he insists that the Princess' fatal vehicular mishap that happened 20 years ago was premeditated.
