Princess Diana's Death

On August 31, 1997, The Princess of Wales Diana died at the young age of 36, leaving behind sons Prince William and Harry. Princess Diana died as a result of injuries sustained after a car crash inside the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris, France. Diana's boyfriend Dodi Fayed and the driver, Henri Paul, were pronounced dead at the scene. Princess Diana's bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, was the only survivor of the accident. Initially, the cause of the accident was thought to be because of paparazzi, who were following the car, but later, it was revealed that the wreck wascaused by Paul. He reportedly must have lost control of the car when it was at a high speed while he was drunk. Prince William was 15 years old and Harry was just 12 years old at the time of their mother's death. In a recent interview with GQ UK, Prince William said that it's taken him 20 years to come to terms with his mother's death. William explained: It has taken me almost 20 years to get to that stage. I still find it difficult now because at the time it was so raw. And also, it is not like most people’s grief, because everyone else knows about it, everyone knows the story, everyone knows her. He also said that, when it comes to raising his kids: I would like to have had her advice. I would love her to have met Catherine and to have seen the children grow up,” he told the magazine, which will hit newsstands on Thursday. It makes me sad that she won’t, that they will never know her. I could not do my job without the stability of the family. Stability at home is so important to me. I want to bring up my children in a happy, stable, secure world and that is so important to both of us as parents.
