15 years on, fans' pilgrimage for Diana

Princess Diana has been remembered by fans and tourists on the 15th anniversary of her death with scores of flowers, posters and cards.

The tributes were attached to the gates of Kensington Palace, London, as a memorial to the former wife of Prince Charles who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

Diana super-fan John Loughrey (57) dressed head-to-toe in Union flags, arrived at 6am yesterday.

He said: "Diana is like diamonds, they never wear away. She's a phenomenon with her charity work and her caring about people."

Maria Scott (41) travelled from Newcastle to attend the memorial. She said she had also been coming for 15 years.

"Diana should be remembered because she's the mother of our future king and she should never be forgotten."
