On August 31, 1997, Diana Spencer was involved in a tragic road accident that resulted from dangerous driving. The car the crew was driving, a Mercedes-Benz W140 S-Class, entered the Pont de L'Alma tunnel at 110km/h, over twice the speed limit in the tunnel.

Fun Facts

  • Diana and Prince Charles would sire Prince William and Harry before getting divorced in 1996. Unfortunately, multiple affairs by both parties rocked the marriage and drove the two further apart.

  • On August 31, 1997, Diana Spencer was driving in the company of Dodi Fayed, Henri Paul and Trevor Rees Jones. They were going at high speeds to evade the paparazzi.
