Princess Diana – the way it was for her.
For me, this picture really sums up everything about her public life at that time. Cameras pointing at her, body guards and police surrounding her, the Lady-In-Waiting at her side, and hoards of people clamouring for a glimpse.
And of course, an apparently serene young woman in the centre of it all.
Princess Diana’s death almost 20 years ago remains one of the most shocking events in royal history.
Although I am not a royalist, every year I remember Princess Diana’s death and the significance of August 31st.
During my career as a press and pr photographer, I photographed several members of the royal family. It was always a chore to me.
All the protocol and pomp annoyed me and I hated the whole set-up with a passion.
