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.

The Princess's body was subsequently repatriated to Great Britain 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. Shortly after midnight, it was moved to the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace, where it lay privately until the funeral on Saturday, 6 September, in Westminster Abbey. The Princess's family and friends visited the Chapel to pay their respects.

Following the funeral, the coffin then was taken by road to the family estate at Althorp for a private interment.

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 viscouintess Althorp, now the late Earl Spencer and the Hon Mrs. Shand-Kydd.

Together with her two elder sisters Jane and Sarah, and her younger brother Charles, the Princess was brought up at her father's house on the Queen's Estate at Sandringham and also at Althorp, the family home in the English Midlands. (The latter is a stately house which dates from 1508.) She was educated first at Riddlesworth Hall Preparatory School in Norfolk before going, in 1974, as a boarding pupil to West Heath School near Sevenoaks in Kent. The Princess's education was completed in 1978 at the Institut Alpin Videmanette, a finishing school in Rougemont, Switzerland. The following year she moved to a flat in Coleherne Court, London. For a while she looked after the child of an American couple, and she worked as a kindergarten teacher at the Young England School in Pimlico.

On 24 February 1981 it was officially announced that Lady Diana was to marry The Prince of Wales. They were married at St Paul's Cathedral on 29 July 1981 in a ceremony which drew a global television and radio audience estimated at around 1,000 million people, with a further 600,000 lining the route from Buckingham Palace to the Cathedral. She was the first Englishwoman to marry an heir to the throne for 300 years.

The Princess of Wales had two sons. Prince William Arthur Philip Louis was born on 21 June 1982 and Prince Henry Charles Albert David on 15 September 1984, both at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, in London.

In December 1992 it was announced that The Prince and Princess of Wales had agreed to separate. They were divorced on 28 August 1996.

The Princess continued to be regarded as a member of the Royal Family, and lived at Kensington Palace.

After marriage the Princess of Wales quickly became involved in the official duties of the Royal family. Her first tour was a three-day visit around Wales. In 1983 she accompanied the Prince of Wales on a tour of Australia and New Zealand. In a break with royal tradition, they took the infant Prince William with them. Prince William, with Prince Harry, again joined the Prince and Princess at the end of their tour to Italy in 1985. Other official visits overseas undertaken with The Prince included Australia, Brazil, India, South Korea, Canada, Nigeria, Cameroon, Indonesia, Spain, Portugal and Japan.

The Princess made her first official visit overseas on her own in September 1982 when she represented The Queen at the State funeral of Princess Grace of Monaco. She subsequently visited many countries including Norway, Germany, the United States, Pakistan, Switzerland, Hungary, Egypt, Belgium, France, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Angola and Bosnia.

She was, however, best known for her charitable work - notably publicising work on behalf of people with HIV/Aids. In the year before her death, the Princess was an active campaigner for a ban on the manufacture and use of land mines, visiting Angola and Bosnia as part of her campaign. In June 1997, the Princess addressed the Royal Geographical Society conference on this issue. Her love of children was also readily apparent in her charitable work.

Although she resigned as Patron or President of some 100 charities with which she was associated before her divorce, she continued to be Patron of Centrepoint, the English National Ballet, the Leprosy Mission and the National AIDS trust, and was President of the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, and of the Royal Marsden Hospital.

The Princess had also held honorary ranks and appointments in various regiments of the Armed Services.

In 2007 Prince William and Prince Harry organised Concert for Diana, a unique tribute to their mother held at Wembley Stadium.

The concert, held on 1 July, what would have been The Princess's 46th birthday, was held in front of a 62,000 crowd in the stadium and watched on television by millions more people around the world.

Although the event was first and foremost a tribute concert, both Prince William and Prince Harry were keen that any proceeds should be shared among the eight charities which they had selected to be beneficiaries of at least £150,000.

The charities to benefit included Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, which was founded after The Princess’s death; Sentebale, the Lesotho children’s charity which Prince Harry founded in memory of his mother; and the six organisations of which the Princess was Patron at the time of her death: the Royal Marsden and Great Ormond Street Hospitals, Centrepoint (of which Prince William is now Patron), The Leprosy Mission, The National AIDS Trust and English National Ballet, who also performed at the concert.

HRH Prince Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales

b. 14 November 1948
     HRH Prince Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales was born on 14 November 1948 at Buckingham Palace, London, England. He was the son of HRH The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh and HM Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary. HRH Prince Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales married Diana Frances Spencer Princess of Wales, daughter of Edward John Spencer 8th Earl Spencer and Frances Ruth Burke Roche, on 29 July 1981 at St. Paul's Cathedral, London, England.1 HRH Prince Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales and Diana Frances Spencer Princess of Wales were separated in December 1992 at London, England. HRH Prince Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales and Diana Frances Spencer Princess of Wales were divorced on 28 August 1996 at London, England.1 HRH Prince Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales married Camilla Rosemary Shand, daughter of Maj. Bruce Middleton Hope Shand and Hon. Rosalind Maud Cubitt, on 9 April 2005 at Guildhall, Windsor, England.


When, on the accession of Queen Elizabeth in 1952, he became heir apparent, Prince Charles automatically became Duke of Cornwall under a charter of King Edward III dating back to 1337, which gave that title to the Sovereign's eldest son. He also became in the Scottish Peerage, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick and Baron Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.

The Prince was created Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester on 26 July 1958, becoming the first Prince of Wales since 1936. Although investitures of Princes of Wales were traditionally held in front of Parliament, and not all Princes of Wales have been invested, the investiture of the present Prince of Wales (like that of his predecessor Prince Edward, later Edward VIII, in 1911) was a State occasion.

It took place in a Welsh setting before the Welsh people, at Caernarfon Castle on 1 July 1969. The Welsh regalia (Crown Jewels associated with the Princes of Wales) used at the investitures in 1911 and 1969 are on loan to the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff.

On 29 July 1981, The Prince of Wales married Lady Diana Spencer in St Paul's Cathedral who became HRH The Princess of Wales.

The Princess was born on 1 July 1961, at Park House on The Queen's estate at Sandringham, Norfolk. She lived there until the death in 1975 of her grandfather, the 7th Earl, when the family moved to the Spencer family seat at Althorp House in Northamptonshire.

Lady Diana's father, then Viscount Althorp and later the eighth Earl Spencer, had been an equerry to both George VI and The Queen. Her maternal grandmother, Ruth, Lady Fermoy, was a close friend and lady in waiting to The Queen Mother.

From the time of their marriage, The Prince and Princess of Wales went on overseas tours and carried out many engagements together in the UK.

On 9 December 1992, the Prime Minister, John Major, announced to the House of Commons that The Prince and Princess of Wales had agreed to separate.

The marriage was dissolved on 28 August, 1996. The Princess was still regarded as a member of the Royal Family. She continued to live at Kensington Palace and to carry out her public work for a number of charities.

When The Princess was killed in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997, The Prince of Wales flew to Paris with her two sisters to bring her body back to London. The Princess lay in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace until the night before the funeral.

On the day of the funeral, The Prince of Wales accompanied his two sons, aged 15 and 12 at the time, as they walked behind the coffin from The Mall to Westminster Abbey. With them were The Duke of Edinburgh and The Princess's brother, Earl Spencer.

The Prince of Wales asked the media to respect his sons' privacy, to allow them to lead a normal school life. In the following years, Princes William and Harry, who are second and third in line to the throne, accompanied their father on a limited number of official engagements in the UK and abroad.

The Prince of Wales married Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles on 9 April 2005 at a civil ceremony at the Guildhall in Windsor, followed by a service of prayer and dedication in St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

After the wedding, Mrs Parker Bowles became known as HRH The Duchess of Cornwall. When The Prince of Wales accedes to the throne, she will be known as HRH The Princess Consort.

Charles Francis Adams1

b. 18 August 1807, d. 1 November 1886
     Charles Francis Adams was an American diplomat and editor, grandson of John Adams and son of John Quincy Adams, born in Boston, and educated at Harvard University. He was admitted to the bar in 1829. Adams served for five years in the Massachusetts legislature as a member of the Whig Party. In 1858 and again in 1860, he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts as a member of the Republican Party. In 1861 he was appointed minister to Great Britain by Abraham Lincoln. His skillful handling of this position during the American Civil War (1861-65), when the British government rendered aid to the Confederacy, is an outstanding chapter in the history of American diplomacy. In the so-called Trent affair, the first major crisis in Anglo-American relations during the war, his calm and tact were instrumental in averting hostilities between the two nations. Although he failed to prevent the sailing of the Alabama, a raider built in Great Britain for the Confederacy, his efforts with the British government later resulted in the detention of other Confederate vessels. He resigned as minister to Great Britain in 1868. In 1871 he became a member of the Alabama claims tribunal. He edited the Life and Works of John Adams (10 vol., 1850-56), the Memoirs of John Quincy Adams (12 vol., 1874-77), and the Familiar Letters of John Adams and His Wife, Abigail (2 vol., 1876).
