Tributes are expected later this month as Britain marks 20 years since the death of Princess Diana.
The ‘People’s Princess’, as she was fondly known, was the first wife of Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne.
She died aged 36 in Paris on August 31, 1997, after the limousine carrying her and lover Dodi al-Fayed crashed in a tunnel as it tried to escape paparazzi who were chasing them on motorbikes.
Diana was just 19 when she was betrothed to Charles in 1981, but the marriage broke down.
Diana blamed Camilla Parker Bowles, Charles’s lover who later became his wife, for the collapse of the marriage.
Diana was known for her charity work, particularly in the fight on behalf of people with AIDS or landmine victims.
Recordings of Princess Diana speaking candidly about her sex life with Prince Charles and her sorrow at the spectacular collapse of her marriage were broadcast on British television by broadcaster Channel 4 to coincide with 20th anniversary of Diana’s death on August 6.
