As the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death approaches, new details about her final days have been revealed. There is one question that continually pops up is how old was Princess Diana when she died? She was only 36 years old when she was involved in a car crash in the Alma Tunnel in France on Aug. 31, 1997.
The Princess of Wales, had just celebrated her birthday on July 1 with her brother, Charles Spencer, at a gala at the Tate Gallery in London.
“The last time I saw Diana was on July 1, her birthday in London, when typically she was not taking a time to celebrate her special day with friends but was a guest of honour at a special charity fundraising evening. She sparkled, of course,” the Earl recalled at Diana’s funeral. Diana also woke up to 90 bouquets of flowers and a call from Prince Harry singing “Happy Birthday” with his classmates that day.
