On August 31st, 1997, the world lost a truly beautiful soul. Princess Diana was killed in a car accident while being chased by paparazzi through the tunnels of Paris. To this day, Prince Harry still holds anger towards the people who cause the accident, then stood by taking pictures while she died.

""I think one of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people that chased her into the tunnel were the same people that were taking photographs of her while she was still dying on the back seat of the car," said Harry. "She'd had quite a severe head injury but she was very much still alive on the back seat. And those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, were taking photographs of her dying on the back seat."

Before her untimely death, Princess Diana dedicated much of her time to helping those in need, and Sir Elton John remembers that fondly.

“[AIDS] was considered to be a gay disease," Sir Elton said. “And for someone who was within the Royal Family, and who was a woman, and who was straight — to have someone care from the other side was an incredible gift."
