The Princess of Wales died in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.

The world was shocked. Diana had been such a big part of peoples' lives for so long that they felt they knew her.

Some of the grief turned in to anger when the Royal Family were slow to realise just how upset the public were.

The funeral was a big show of emotion. Diana's life and death had put Britain more in touch with its feelings.

She is remembered by many as the nation's 'Queen of Hearts'.
