17-YEARS-AGO today Lady Diana was tragically killed in a car crash travelling through Paris.

A year after her marriage to Prince Charles ended (28 August 1996) Diana was travelling with Dodi Fayed when the car they were in crashed into a pillar in a Paris tunnel. The tunnel of the fatal car crash has become a regular location for people visiting where they lay flowers and light candles in memory of Diana.

France have since opened the underpass due to the amount of visitors and now the public can safely visit the scene, and pillar 13 where the car carrying Diana crashed into.

Diana’s charity work was recognised worldwide, placing herself in war torn countries, meeting the people of the world despite the dangers of some environments. The infamous walk across a minefield in Angola showed the world that Diana was dedicated to the cause of raising awareness and monies for charities to help the people of the world in need.

On this day, the 17 year anniversary of Diana’s death the iconic stunning bridal gown she wore when marrying Prince Charles is to return to the UK. Earl Spencer, brother of Diana is responsible for Diana’s property until her sons Prince William and Prince Harry turn 30. Now the gown is returning from its worldwide tour and to the Prince’s, there is suggestion that the wedding gown may go on public display at Kensington Palace for all to see.
