Even now, many years on, the passing of the ‘people’s princess’ still promotes very strong emotional reactions from many members of the public.

A recent Channel 4 documentary investigated Princess Diana’s death and the circumstances surrounding it.

Investigating Diana: Death in Paris was broadcast on August 21 of this year and told the full story of two police investigations into her demise.

So, just when did Princess Diana die and how old would she have been now?

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the documentary.

How long ago did Princess Diana die?

Princess Diana died on August 31, 1997, at the age of 36.

Wednesday, August 31, 2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the death.

In the early hours of that date, she died in hospital after being injured in a car accident in a road tunnel in Paris.

Her partner, Dodi Fayed, and the driver of the Mercedes-Benz W140, Henri Paul, were pronounced dead at the scene.

A memorial to Diana was opened in Hyde Park by Her Majesty The Queen on July 6, 2004.

The fountain was built to reflect Diana’s life, the website states, with water flowing from the highest point in two directions as it cascades, swirls and bubbles before meeting in a calm pool at the bottom.

The water is constantly being refreshed and is drawn from London’s water table.

The Memorial symbolises Diana’s quality and openness. There are three bridges where you can cross the water and go right to the heart of the fountain.

How old would Princess Diana have been now?

Born on July 1, 1961, Diana would’ve turned 61 this year.

Had she lived, she would be a grandmother to five – after her eldest son, Prince William and Kate Middleton, welcomed children Prince George in 2013, Princess Charlotte in 2015, and Prince Louis in 2018.

Diana’s youngest son, Prince Harry, welcomed his first child, Prince Archie, with wife Meghan Markle in 2019 – while their daughter, Lilibet Diana, was born in June 2021.

Princess Diana quotes to remember the late royal

‘I like to be a free spirit. Some don’t like that, but that’s the way I am.’

‘Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.’

‘I knew what my job was; it was to go out and meet the people and love them.’

‘Family is the most important thing in the world.’

‘Only do what your heart tells you.’

‘Anywhere I see suffering, that is where I want to be, doing what I can.’

‘The greatest problem in the world today is intolerance. Everyone is so intolerant of each other.’
