20 ways Princess Diana's legacy of good lives on

Over the next 17 years, she became the most photographed woman and some, including her sons, believe the paparazzi, who hounded her in Paris the night of the auto crash, are partly to blame for her death.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the day Diana, Princess of Wales died in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris.

The town will be among those remembering the "people's princess" who during 1993 was in Bolton. "But her greatest legacy will be her two sons".

An Australian woman cried at the site without speaking while British woman, Linda Grant, said that "it's like it was yesterday still, which means she is still here in our hearts".

Her death sent shockwaves around the world and the subsequent images of the young princes walking behind the horse-drawn gun carriage transporting their mother's coffin through the streets of London are etched in the public's memory.

Diana had apparently heard there was "discomfort" at Buckingham Palace over a fundraising event with the charity involving the Cunard shipping line and she planned to use that as a reason to cancel her involvement. But she looked like she was leading and because I knew that the world was watching I thought that I really needed to give her certainty that I knew what to do. "Elton John's song was incredibly emotional, that was part of this whole trigger system which almost brought me to the point of crying in public, which I'm glad I didn't do", Harry said on Diana, 7 Days.

Both ladies realized they shared the same sign - Cancer - which amused Diana. "But I just kept thinking about what she would want and that she'd be proud of Harry and I. And effectively, she was there with us". "I guess you could say I had my Marcia Brady moment".

The news of Diana's death led to the first Sunday publications of the EADT, Evening Star and Eastern Daily Press newspapers.

"It just goes to show what a massive figure she was and still is", said royal correspondent Roya Nikkah.

"She had no problem at all being photographed", said Alan.
