Diana: The Day the World Cried

September 6 2017 will mark the 20th anniversary of the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales. A defining moment in recent history, it was a day when the world was brought to a standstill. One million people lined the streets of London to see the procession, 2.5 billion watched on TV around the world. And many openly wept. The Day The World Cried constructs a powerful narrative around September 6 1997, from the chime of the tenor bell marking Diana’s departure from Kensington Palace on a lonely gun carriage to the remarkable journey of the hearse along a deserted motorway to her final resting place at her family home of Althorp. But it also casts a fresh eye on the legacy of “the People’s Princess” -­ a woman with no academic who became a worldwide phenomenon, nominated by Time magazine as “one of the most important people of the 20th Century.”
