1. Lady Diana
The above photo was the last photo ever before the crash happened. Many press/paparazi raced to print it as the last photo of the princess. As seen, only her golden hair is visible in this photograph.
The photo was taken on the car ride from Hotel Ritz in Paris at around 12:20 AM on August 31, 1997. Henri Paul, the hotel chauffeur is on the right and Dodi Fayed’s bodyguard named Trevor Reese-Jones is seen seated on the passenger seat. On the back seat is princess Diana (looking back towards the papparazzi that’s following them) with Dodi Fayed seated next to her. A few seconds after this photo was taken, the Mercedes drove into the Place de L’Alma tunnel. Estimated to be going 105 km/h (65 mph), the driver lost control of the car and steered right before smashing into a column of the tunnel. Dodi Fayed and Henri Paul both died instantly. Trevor Reese-Jones survived with severe injuries on his face. Diana was critical, but then died the next morning in the hospital.
