The last photo makes me cry. Princess Diana’s Funeral held on September 6th 1997.
17 years ago today, an angel was sent home
I will never forget watching her funeral on TV, being so confused about why this was such a big deal. When my mom explained to me that Diana was a real life princess that everyone loved, my heart broke immediately. It was almost like, at the young age of 7 years, I understood that the world lost one of it’s most wonderful people, and that her void would never be filled.

Diana, Princess of Wales
July 01, 1961 - August 31, 1997
We miss you every second of every day…
❝ Diana was the very essence of compassion, of duty, of style, of beauty. All over the world she was a symbol of selfless humanity. All over the world, a standard bearer for the rights of the truly downtrodden, a very British girl who transcended nationality … I would like to end by thanking God for the small mercies he has shown us at this dreadful time. For taking Diana at her most beautiful and radiant and when she had joy in her private life. Above all we give thanks for the life of a woman I am so proud to be able to call my sister, the unique, the complex, the extraordinary and irreplaceable Diana whose beauty, both internal and external, will never be extinguished from our minds.❞
Rest in Peace Diana, Princess of Wales
