Last But Not the Least: Princess Diana's Last Photo

Lady Diana's death was relived just a few years ago as the much-awaited inquest into her unfortunate accident went underway. Here's her Last Photo taken, mere seconds before her crash.

As unbelievable as it may seem, these photos were hidden from public view up until 2007, which was 10 years after Lady Diana’s untimely death. You can only see a bit of her golden hair as she looked out back at her pursuers, but it speaks volumes about the loss of privacy and boundaries. Where do we draw the line?

Lady Diana’s death highlighted the then emerging paparazzi problem. As she sped away from them, the photographers still followed suit up until the very moment of the crash. Details of the whole incident is shrouded in mystery and controversy but make no mistake about – it is a fate that no one deserves. Here’s to Princess Diana, who 15 years after her death, remains relevant as ever.

Also, look forward to more installments of the Last But Not the Least Series this week!

    That picture was taken from the front of the car, not the back. She's looking out the front window, not the back. Whoever took the picture wasn't behind her - catching up, but in front of her - possibly has passed her up or was waiting in ambush. The picture is so clear. It's almost as if the camera were mounted on the hood of the car. This is a hi-rez picture taken in low-light without a flash. If the camera wasn't mounted on the car, then this was one hell-of-a lens.

    Surely the passenger's 'redeye' and the shadow of the rear view mirror on Diana's head indicates use of a flash?
