On this day eighteen years ago Princess Diana died in Paris, France from injuries sustained in a tragic automobile accident. She was just 36 years old.
~ In Memory ~
Althorp, the Spenser family estate and Diana's final resting place, was on my list of places to visit when I went to England earlier this year, but we ran out of time. Maybe next visit. It hardly seems possible that 18 years have lapsed since her death. I still remember the Saturday night the news of the accident came on television, and her passing in the early hours of Sunday morning. It was such a sad ending to a young life.
While in England we did, however, see her memorial in Harrods.
How wonderful that William and Kate are lovingly keeping her memory alive. He was just 15 when she died. She would be so proud of the man he's become, and her two beautiful grandchildren.
~ Rest in Peace, Diana ~
