An anniversary is being marked on both sides of the English Channel today, 20 years to day after the death of Princess Diana.

Floral tributes, candles and other mementos have been accumulating outside Kensington Palace in London, and the Pont d’Alma in Paris where Diana, her lover, Dodi al-Fayed, and their driver met their untimely end in a
car crash over which still hangs a cloud of mystery.

The British press, for whom Diana was a godsend in terms of stories and sales, is also marking the occasion with front pages and special pull-outs. The “people’s Princess” remains rooted in the minds of many people.

In Paris at the memorial erected to Diana a mixture of vacationing Brits, other tourists and locals have brought their own tributes to this corner of the French capital that will be forever linked to her mystique.
