Elton John Pays Tribute to Princess Diana on Instagram

Strickland attended an auction of Diana's dresses in NY in 1997, where she recalls at least two dresses selling for $150,000 pounds or more. "We have been able to have this affair with Princess David - Princess Diane here on her first trip to the United States", he said.

"I said, 'Happy early birthday, ' and she said, 'How do you know when my birthday is?'" Strickland recalled. He says Diana is a "constant reminder" for himself to strive to behave kindly towards other people.

Today marks 20 years since the shocking and tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Rest in peace, Diana.

In November 1985, President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan welcomed Diana and her husband, Prince Charles, to the White House.

"Their courage to be openly vulnerable and to talk about these issues is a mark of how the royal family has changed and an example of the role a modern royal family can play in British life", it said in an editorial.

Meanwhile, Diana's kids Prince Harry and William paid tribute to their mother by visiting the Kensington Palace and taking a stroll in her favourite garden on Wednesday.

"I think she got married far too young, she was unable to articulate her own needs... she lived in a loveless marriage".

Smith added that he believes the press offices at all three Royal Houses aren't "collaborating and cooperating" and some from Kensington and Buckingham Palace are reportedly uncomfortable "with the extent to which the two Princes are airing their personal feelings" on Diana.

On Twitter, Kensington Palace wrote: "The Duke and Prince Harry are grateful for the many flowers, letters and messages they have received about their mother. She was obviously very sad about Diana", Blair explains in another clip.

A 2008 inquest in the United Kingdom found the Princess was unlawfully killed as a result of "grossly negligent" driving by her chauffeur, Henri Paul, who lost control of the vehicle at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour.
