First doctor on scene recounts Diana's fatal crash in Paris

On the eve of this fateful date of August 31, mark in 2017, the twenty years of the death of the princess, the trio royal has ventured between the puddles to visit in the gardens of the Kensington palace, the Sunken Garden.

Outside the palace, Britons left flowers of their own Tuesday.

It is a more muted affair than in 1997, when a sea of flowers formed outside the gates after Diana's death.

They will meet representatives of the charities Diana supported at Kensington Palace, their current home and where their mother lived until she was killed in a auto crash on Aug 31, 1997.

Second in line to the throne William said: "She was this ray of light in a fairly grey world".

The Duke of Cambridge (left) and Prince Harry look at tributes to Diana, Princess of Wales attached to the Golden Gates of Kensington Palace, London, ahead of the 20th anniversary of their mother's death.

Jason, whose father is from the United Kingdom, says he remembers Diana as "very glamorous - but with a mischievous side", and says he feels it is important to remember the princess for her charity work.

She was 36 years old. "I said in the middle under the HRH on a poster".

The inquest into her death found that she was unlawfully killed by a combination of the driving of chauffeur Henri Paul, who was found to be intoxicated at the time, and the actions of the mob of photographers.

In interviews described as the most personal they have ever given about their mother, her sons have described the personal anguish they experienced and the "raw" grief they still feel.

We hate the thought that Princess Diana was that miserable in her marriage when it had only started.

"I never met her but I felt like I'd lost someone so close to me ... and I can't explain why I felt like that", she said.

A smudged note, signed by the Gould family, from Egham in Surrey, reads: "Still not forgotten after 20 years", while another letter says that her "two boys are like you in so many ways". And, she even took it upon herself to speak to Camilla face-to-face.

Behind the closed gates are newly-planted gardens, which have been filled with Diana's favourite flowers: white roses, scented narcissi and a carpet of forget-me-nots.
