The Washington Post, in her obituary, called her "the most photographed woman in the world." She was loved in England for saying, after her divorce from Prince Charles, "I'd like to be a queen of people's hearts." Americans loved her for her work with charitable causes supporting victims of AIDS and landmines. Aug. 31 marks 20 years since the death of Princess Diana, who was killed with two others in a Paris car crash. And she is still America's favorite royal. Here are some of the best photos of Princess Diana throughout the years.
