TODAY marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana.

The Argus has chosen some of the more memorable photographs from our archive to commemorate the occasion.

Princess Di as she was commonly known gave birth to Prince William, second in line to the British throne, and his brother Prince Harry.

She was one of the members of the Royal Family famed for her dedication to humanitarian work, as well as being a celebrity, role model and fondly remembered princess.

Shown above during her visits to various locations in Sussex, she made her mark wherever she went.

Princess Diana is pictured talking to residents at the Eastbourne Disabled Housing Trust and also to swimmers at an Eastbourne swimming pool during a visit to the seaside town in 1989.

A visit to the Brighton Centre in 1990 is shown, top left, and she can also be seen at a Mark Wigglesworth concert two years prior.

Diana even stopped off at Gatwick Airport on September 22, 1988, to listen to the dialogue of pilots as they came in to land.

Diana was born into the British aristocracy and gained the title Lady Diana Spencer in 1975 when her father, Edward John Spencer, inherited the title Earl Spencer.

She married Prince Charles in July 1981 and was given the official title of Princess of Wales.

Her title was still formally acknowledged even after the marriage came to an end.

Her tragic death happened during a trip to Paris with Dodi Fayed, son of the owner of Harrods.

The late notice they gave to cancel dinner plans they had made meant hotel security worker Henri Paul was called to drive them to Mr Fayed’s apartment.

The vehicle entered a nearby tunnel at twice the speed limit and smashed in to a pillar.

Unlike Mr Fayed and Paul, Diana did not die instantly.

She passed away the next morning, on August 31, 1997.
