Princess Diana died tragically 22 years ago today (August 31) in 1997 in a car accident on the streets of Paris.

During her funeral, held at Westminster Abbey, Earl Spencer delivered the moving eulogy to his sister.

Diana was the very essence of compassion, of duty, of style, of beauty.

In his address, the Earl said that, "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.

"Someone with a natural nobility who was classless and who proved in the last year that she needed no royal title to continue to generate her particular brand of magic."
