Princess Diana Remembered at 50

In honor of her milestone birthday, see how the memory of the late Princess of Wales's is still being honored worldwide


After Diana's death in a Paris car crash in 1997, the sidewalks, railings and gates around her former residence at Kensington Palace turned into a makeshift shrine of flowers, photographs and art dedicated to the late princess. Kensington has also become a pilgrimage for mourners, who continue to pay their respects on the anniversaries of her birthday and death. "Diana wasn't like the other royals," one well-wisher told PEOPLE in 1997. "She was one of us."
