August 31, 1997. No wars ended or began that day. Nor did any natural disasters strike. There were no earth-shaking discoveries made, no records shattered, no feats accomplished. Yet it was a day that both stunned and united the world like few others in history. It was the day Diana died.
Christopher Andersen, in an excerpt from his best-selling book, The Day Diana Died (via thosedarnwindsors)
