It has been nearly 19 years since Diana, Princess of Wales, was killed in a Paris car crash. Had she lived, the People’s Princess would have been celebrating her 55th birthday this year.

Diana was beloved by millions around the world and is sorely missed by her two sons, Princes William and Harry. In the years since her tragic death, Diana’s boys have grown into magnificent men who have never forgotten their mum – William even giving his daughter Charlotte, Diana as a middle name.

To mark her birthday we have put together this collection of photographs to celebrate Diana’s wonderful life.
