Exactly 25 years have passed since the death of Diana, Princess of

source-tenor

Wales. But her legacy of activism and philanthropy (not to mention cycling shorts) lives on.

Diana died aged 36 on 31 August 1997 from injuries sustained in a

source-tenor

car crash in Paris, which also killed her companion Dodi Fayed and

source-tenor

driver Henri Paul. Nearly a decade later, a jury attributed her death to

source-tenor

the careless driving of both her chauffeur and the paparazzi who

pursued them (her sons also blame the BBC for the role played by

source-tenor

her scandalous 1995 interview obtained through a forgery scheme and deception in her death ).
