"When I have my public duties, I understand that when I get out the car I’m being photographed, but actually it’s now when I go out of my door, my front door, I’m being photographed. I never know where a lens is going to be. A normal day would be followed by four cars; a normal day would come back to my car and find six freelance photographers jumping around me. Some people would say, Well, if you had a policeman it would make it easier. It doesn’t at all. They’ve decided that I’m still a product, after 15, 16 years, that sells well, and they all shout at me, telling me that: `Oh, come on, Di, look up. If you give us a picture I can get my children to a better school.’ And, you know, you can laugh it off. But you get that the whole time. It’s quite difficult."

Rest in peace, Princess Diana - seventeen years ago today.
