Thursday marks the 20th anniversary of the death Diana, Princess of Wales, the woman who became not only Great Britain's sweetheart, but America's too.
Just 36 when she and friend Dodi Fayed died in a Paris car crash, Diana never had the chance to see her family grow. Son Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, went on to marry Kate Middleton and the couple now has two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Son Prince Harry of Wales is reportedly dating actress Meghan Markle.
