Princess Diana’s death was a shock to the world. Millions worldwide mourned the “People’s Princess,” and her funeral became the most-watched broadcast in history. Many felt that they had lost a family member. But for some, that was their reality.
Prince William and Prince Harry were only children when they lost their mother and famously walked behind her coffin before she was laid to rest. The brothers were at Balmoral at the time of the accident, and what went on the following day was nothing short of a significant trauma.
Prince William and Prince Harry spoke with their mother earlier, the same day she was involved in the horrific car crash in Paris that took her life. In an interview about their mother, the Prince of Wales revealed the heartbreaking last words he ever told her.
At approximately 12.23 am, in the early hours of August 31, 1997, Princess Diana’s car crashed in The Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris, France. She and her boyfriend, the Egyptian-born film magnate Dodi Fayed, were traveling in the car together from the Ritz Hotel — accompanied by a driver and bodyguard. They were pursued by paparazzi journalists and crashed at high speed in the Paris tunnel.
Princess Diana’s tragic death
Diana’s partner, Dodi Fayed, and the car’s driver, Henri Paul, were found dead inside the vehicle. Meanwhile, her bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, survived.
The beloved princess received lengthy treatment by medics at the scene but suffered a cardiac arrest while in the ambulance. By six minutes past two in the morning, Diana had reached the hospital.
Upon arrival at the hospital, Diana underwent an X-ray that revealed she had suffered severe internal injuries. As a result, she immediately received a blood transfusion.
Do you think it is should be normalized to breastfeed in public? Or mothers should cover and find a better place and not show their body parts while feeding their baby?
