Talking to BBC, Earl Spencer, Princess Diana's brother, spoke of how her sister, Diana, felt about Pakistan: "Diana adored Pakistan".

Two decades after Diana's death, royal biographer Ingrid Seward says it's much harder for the press to gain access to the monarchy. The funeral of Diana was watched by the British television audience and which ultimately made a record of United Kingdom's highest viewing figures ever.

To mark the 20th anniversary of her death people have stuck posters to the iconic gates of Kensington Palace, and left bunches of flowers to remember the Princess. Kate Middleton, very chic and, as usual, was also at her husband's side, to bring him all their support.

"I think she got married far too young, she was unable to articulate her own needs... she lived in a loveless marriage".

'At that moment the doctor said she was in cardiac arrest, so we gave her CPR and after 20 seconds she regained consciousness'.

Twenty years later, the world is still entranced by Lady Diana. Her admirers began paying tribute to Diana before dawn, placing candles shaped in the letter "D" at the palace gates.

Head Gardener Sean Harkin led the royals on a walk around the grounds and pointed out a number of the late Princess' favourite flowers on the way, from lilies to white roses.

The Princess was patron of the National Rubella Council until her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996.

The auto crash shocked the world and saw unprecedented expressions of grief from hundreds of thousands of people who felt a connection with Diana.

The 20th anniversary of Diana's death has prompted a renewed fascination with the "People's Princess", as she was dubbed by then prime minister Tony Blair, with her sons Prince William and Harry leading the tributes.

Gourmelon had only opened up about that night one time before, in the inquest into Diana's death in 2008.

She died along with Dodi Fayed, her wealthy Egyptian boyfriend of two months, and his driver Henri Paul who was trying to shake off paparazzi photographers.

Princess Diana touched the lives of many people through her charity work. "She's never going to be forgotten".
