Why 1 Billion People Watched Princess Diana's Funeral

"We have been able to have this affair with Princess David - Princess Diane here on her first trip to the United States", he said.

"Princess Diana had one of the purest of souls using her privileges to benefit people who were less fortunate than her", says Pegasus.

Years later Diana is still remembered.

From her engagement to the Prince of Wales in 1981 until her death in 1997, Diana was a major presence on the world stage, often described as the "world's most photographed woman".

"She was very friendly and helpful, chatting to the children", he said, recalling how she helped one child into her coat "just like a mum". But I found out later she had died in hospital.

Speaking about Charlotte, Kate said: 'She absolutely loves it'.

"She wrote: "'Only Do What Your Heart Tells You' Princess Diana, 20 Years #rip#princessdiana".

Prince William and Prince Harry paid tribute to their mother, visiting the floral tributes at the gates of her former home Kensington Palace.

It's impossible not to think about when they were much younger boys, putting on the same fearless faces while mourners brought flowers and mementos to the palace gates all those years ago.

Sergeant Xavier Gourmelon, who led the response team after Diana's fatal auto crash, said her last words were "my God, what's happened?", according to The Sun.

During their tour of the White Garden at Kensington Palace, they also met officials from the charities supported by their mother's work - as the pair told of how they were inspired to follow in Diana's footsteps.

Millions more watched the event around the world, as the princess was laid to rest.

After he resuscitated her, Gourmelon thought he had saved her life, and believed that she'd live through the awful accident.

A memorial to Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi al-Fayed is pictured in Harrods in London, 31 August 2006, on the ninth anniversary of their death.

The royals visited the Diana memorial garden in London and examined the tributes to their mother outside the gates of Kensington Palace.

"Then suddenly she's snapped away; if I can put it (this way), all of us lost somebody".
