The Queen in the 1990s

Princess Diana on the day of her divorce

Princess Diana once again made the headlines throughout the 1990s, but this time the story wasn't so happy.

Charles and Diana split up, and Diana said Charles had never loved her and the Queen hadn't treated her very well.

Many people felt sorry for Diana and some blamed the Queen for the divorce.

Then in August 1997 Diana died in a car accident in Paris and a great deal of British people were very upset.

Some of the upset turned into anger with Charles and the Queen, making it a difficult time for the Royal Family.
