Принцеса Уельска Діана (англійською)





The tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales occurred on Sunday, 31

August 1997 following a car accident in Paris, France. The vehicle in

which the Princess was travelling was involved in a high-speed accident

in the Place de l'Alma underpass in central Paris shortly before

midnight on Saturday, 30 August. The Princess was taken to the La Pitie

Salpetriere Hospital, where she underwent two hours of emergency surgery

before being declared dead at 0300 BST. The Princess's companion, Mr

Dodi Fayed, and the driver of the vehicle died in the accident, whilst a

bodyguard was seriously injured.


The Princess's body was subsequently repatriated to the United Kingdom

in the evening of Sunday, 31 August by a BAe 146 aircraft of the Royal

Squadron. The Prince of Wales and the Princess's elder sisters, Lady

Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, accompanied the Princess's

coffin on its return journey. Upon arrival at RAF Northolt, the coffin,

draped with a Royal Standard, was removed from the aircraft and

transferred to a waiting hearse by a bearer party from The Queen's

Colour Squadron of the RAF. The Prime Minister was among those in the

reception party.


From RAF Northolt the coffin was taken to a private mortuary in London,

so that the necessary legal formalities could be completed. Shortly

after midnight, it was moved to the HYPERLINK "../main/chroyal.htm"

Chapel Royal in St James's Palace , where it lay privately until the

HYPERLINK "../main/funeral.htm" funeral on Saturday, 6 September, in

HYPERLINK "../main/wmabbey.htm" Westminster Abbey . The Princess's

family and friends visited the Chapel to pay their respects.


Following the funeral service, the coffin then was taken by road to the

family estate at Althorp for a private interment. The Princess was

buried in sanctified ground on an island in the centre of an ornamental



Childhood and teenage years


Diana, Princess of Wales, formerly Lady Diana Frances Spencer, was born

on 1 July 1961 at Park House near Sandringham, Norfolk. She was the

youngest daughter of the then Viscount and Viscountess Althorp, now the

late (8th) Earl Spencer and the Hon. Mrs Shand-Kydd, daughter of the 4th

Baron Fermoy. Earl Spencer was Equerry to George VI from 1950 to 1952,

and to The Queen from 1952 to 1954. Lady Diana's parents, who had

married in 1954, separated in 1967 and the marriage was dissolved in

1969. Earl Spencer later married Raine, Countess of Dartmouth in 1976.


Together with her two elder sisters Sarah (born 1955), Jane (born 1957)

and her younger brother Charles (born 1964), Lady Diana continued to

live with her father at Park House, Sandringham, until the death of her

grandfather, the 7th Earl Spencer. In 1975, the family moved to the

Spencer family seat at Althorp (a stately house dating from 1508) in

Northamptonshire, in the English Midlands.
