Princess Diana’s 20TH: The French Has No Plan For Her Remembrance, August 31st- See Reasons Sources Gave

Officials at the office of Parisian Mayor Anne Hidalgo admitted they have not planned anything to mark 20 years of the car crash in the the Pont de L’Alma on August 31, 1997, which killed Diana and her lover Dodi Fayed.

Diana, then aged 36, had dined in the Imperial Suite of the Paris Ritz and was being driven back to Dodi’s flat in the early hours of the morning when the Mercedes they were travelling in crashed into the 13th middle pillar of the tunnel and then hit a wall.

An inquest later found chauffeur Henri Paul was drunk and driving too fast, as the couple were chased by paparazzi on motorbikes.

Rees-Jones was the only person in the car to survive. While floral tributes were laid at Kensington Palace, Diana’s London home, mourners held candlelit vigils across the Channel at the Flame of Liberty, situated at the north end of the tunnel.

The gold-leaf covered flame has since become an unofficial memorial for Diana with followers fly-posting the base with commemorative material.
