Britons gather at dawn to remember Diana 20 years after her death

Princess Diana's common touch changed the monarchy forever

Rosa Monckton, a friend of Diana's, told the Times of London that she "busted the myth of being a fairytale princess" and that Diana's many troubles helped people relate to her. In the Instagram post above, you can see Diana and Travolta cutting a rug, with the President in the background. Son Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, went on to marry Kate Middleton and the couple now has two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Diana was subjected to worldwide media scrutiny and was hounded by paparazzi at every step of her life. "She will always be the people's princess", she said, using an epithet coined at the time by prime minister Tony Blair.

"Although it's been 20 years since her passing, the impact she has made on my life and the lives of others will continue to resonate for generations to come", says Pegasus. "But the world of 2017 would not be the same had she not been who she was". The singer famously performed an alternative version of his poignant song Candle In The Wind in honour of Diana at her funeral, held days after she was killed in a Paris vehicle crash.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Diana's death.

On Wednesday, her sons Princes William and Harry - second and fifth in line to the British throne, respectively - visited a memorial garden dedicated to Diana at Kensington Palace, her former home.

And, like princess Diana loved the flowers and especially the roses, Harry and William have not hesitated to do the tour of the " garden white", converted to it by an army of gardeners and by Sean Harkin, who has been working here for nearly 30 years.

Google debuts AR software ARCore for Android devices
For now, only the Google Pixel smartphones and the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be able to make use of the technology once it launches. AR is a far more interesting platform than VR, if for no other reason than you don't need any additional hardware to use it.

Army to release water from 2 Houston reservoirs, flooding nearby homes

"The woman, who I later found out was Princess Diana, was on the floor in the back", he added.

People have been flocking to London's Kensington Palace to pay tribute to Princess Diana's 20th death anniversary.

Diana and her lover Dodi Fayed were both killed in the crash along with their driver Henri Paul, but her bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, the only one of the quartet wearing a seatbelt, survived. She has never gone away and she never will.
