Tributes Pour In For Princess Diana 25 Years After Her Death
Today, August 31, 2022, is exactly 25 years after Princess Diana passed on.
Tributes are pouring in for her—as she is remembered on this solemn day.
Some of her fans placed tributes outside the gates of her Kensington Palace home on Wednesday.
They made an arrangement of white chrysanthemums spelling out “Princess Diana” sitting among dozens of photos and messages.
“We just come here, do the memorial and, you know, we just chat about things that she used to do, you know, to … let people know that we will never forget the princess, we will never forget what she’s done,’’ said Julie Cain, 59, who traveled 300 miles from Newcastle in northern England. “We just want her legacy kept, like, going as long as possible.”
Princess Diana on August 31, 1997, at the age of 36. Her death shocked a lot of people around the world.
On Wednesday morning, Cain and her friend Maria Scott, 51, paid their respects to Diana as dawn broke over the palace, just as they do every year.
“There was just something about that girl that really stood out. And of course, I watched the wedding, the fairy-tale princess,’’ Scott said. “And, you know, you see, she was like part of your life because you were seeing that every day on the television. She was in newspapers, magazines. She was all over. And you felt like she was part of your life.”
She passed on following a car accident in Paris.
