On This Day

A path of 36 oak trees, one for each year of her life, leads to the lake where Diana is buried. Four black swans swim beside water lilies that line the lake. An arboretum planted by Diana, William, Harry, and other family members stands nearby.

Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest in a public funeral at Westminster Abbey today in 1997. Her body was interred on a small island in an ornamental lake on the Spencer family estate. Of the over two billion people watching the funeral, few will forget the image of her sons, William and Henry, walking behind her coffin as it wound through the streets of London.
