Diana, Princess of Wales
The most famous woman in the world died in a car crash on the streets of Paris in the early hours of August 31st, 1997. Diana's death caused unprecedented scenes of public mourning in Britain.
Millions were stunned by the news that the woman dubbed the "people's princess" had met such a shocking, untimely end.
Conspiracies soon swirled - could it be that the death of Diana was no accident?
For a fascinating insider view of the life of Diana, I recommend this book by her former bodyguard, Ken Wharfe: Diana: A Closely Guarded Secret
Another interesting view from within the palace comes from Diana’s former aide: Shadows of a Princess
Diana’s secret interviews with Andrew Morton led to the sensational book Diana: Her True Story--in Her Own Words
Largely based on the investigation into the crash that was carried out by former Scotland Yard superintendent John MacNamara, this book offers a sensational but detailed account for the last moments of Diana’s life: The Murder of Princess Diana: The Truth Behind the Assassination of the People's Princess
