August 31, 1997, was a rather dark day for the whole world, people all over the world mourned the loss of a great woman. The death of Princess Diana surprised everyone and years later her legacy lives on in one form or another. As much as we celebrate her life and everything she has done (and still does for the people through her legacy), this is only part of the story, look at the other half here.
Princess Diana’s Death; 5 Fast Facts
Conspiracy Theories Are Still Being Built Around It Today: When the monarch died in 1997 from the consequences of a fatal car accident in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris, France, some people took him at face value, while an overwhelming majority had some ideas about what could have led to their death. Sure, we all know there was a car accident, but many people are curious about how “innocent” the accident was.
The black Mercedes S-280 was driven by Henri Paul and the passengers were Diana, Princess of Wales, her companion Dodi Fayed and his bodyguard Trevor Rees. Some say it was a planned attack as Diana was pregnant for Fayed and planned to marry him at some point.
Even more fishy is the fact that the Lady Di actually predicted her death in letters she sent to two of her friends, but that the evidence was actually recorded during the investigation into her death itself. The theories are still under construction today.
There’s A Small Chance That She Could Have Made It: Despite the fact that there was minimal damage to her side of the vehicle, Diana stayed a total of 37 minutes in the car and a total of 81 minutes in the tunnel. Medical experts actually testified in court that if Diana had been removed from the scene of the accident in time, her death could have been prevented.
The doctor in charge, Dr. Jean-Marc Martino, was not forced to participate in the official investigation into the death of Princess Diana, so nothing happened.
The Initial French Investigation Concluded That The Accident Was As A Result Of The Driver’s Drunkenness: Apparently, the driver, Henri Paul, was not the best when it came to not drinking, especially before driving. An investigation in London starting in 2004 and continuing in 2007-08 attributed the accident to gross negligence on the part of Paulus and the persecuted paparazzi.
Before that, there were a few testimonies, and here’s one that stood out. The masseuse, Myriah Daniels, testified that Henri Paul had ruthlessly driven from the airport at the beginning of the day, ‘With all due respect, he was probably a very nice man, but he was shit as a driver’.
From 1981 Until The Year Of Her Death She Was A Major Presence Worldwide: Not only because of her princess status but above all because of the way she lived her life, Lady Di had what you might call a great presence on the world stage. None of her selfless actions could go unnoticed, especially because no king would engage in charities that didn’t look too glamorous.
Until her death in 97, she was often described as the most photographed woman in the world and believes us when we say that her brand is still alive. Prince William, Prince Harry, and Kate Middleton continue to develop their brand by supporting their charities and spreading love as she did.
This Year Marks The 20th Anniversary Of Her Death: This is a special year for the Princess and all those who are and have been touched by her kindness, as it is meant to be a one-year celebration of her qualities of kindness, compassion, and service. Everyone is on board, including their children, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
The Diana Award is at the forefront of making this an unforgettable year, according to Express, the charity that was formed to promote the Princess’s belief in the positive power of young people will commemorate her life with a series of events ranging from the launch of a Grand International Award, a groundbreaking App and a National Kindness Day.
In addition, an International Legacy Award will be presented to 20 young people who have positively influenced their world and thus brought about positive social change. In an interview, Tessy Ojo, Managing Director of the Diana Awards, said the charity’s theme for the year was friendliness, compassion, and service, qualities embodied by the Princess.
Apart from all the facts and rumors about the death of Princess Diana, we are all looking forward to a love that is fulfilled in 2017, it is definitely time to practice and share the values she has shown every day, to spread the word.
