Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales, was killed 15 years ago on August 31.

Princess Di was married to Prince Charles from 1981-1996. After their divorce, Diana began dating real estate mogul Dodi al-Fayed. The pair was being chauffeured in Paris, France when the vehicle they were in crashed in a road tunnel. The princess died from injuries sustained in the wreck. Al-Fayed and the driver of the Mercedes-Benze W140 were both pronounced dead on the scene. The only survivor was a bodyguard.

An investigation into the crash determined the driver, Henri Paul, was drunk behind the wheel while trying to elude photographers.
