Much is being made about their two-day Paris excursion since that fateful day in August 1997.

Princess Diana and boyfriend Dodi Fayed were seen leaving the Ritz as they were chased by paparazzi on the streets of France's capital. Diana, Fayed and their driver, Henri Paul, were all killed as the vehicle crashed in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel while trying to evade photographers.

The world remembers the poignant moment as Diana's two sons accompanied her coffin before she was laid to rest.

There are no plans for William and Kate to pay tribute to his mother.

Early Friday, the couple was in London celebrating the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade before dashing off to Paris.

Their agenda in Paris includes a dinner at the British embassy and a visit with first responders of the November 2015 attacks on the city. The couple will also watch France take on Wales in a Six Nations League rugby match Saturday.

The visit comes as William takes plenty of heat after a video showed him "dad dancing" in a club in the Swiss Alps during a ski weekend with friends.

New tape shows him putting his hands on the waist of a mystery woman, which is now causing quite a stir. Vanity Fair magazine reports that Kate was "less than pleased" about the tape.

The trip also landed him in hot water because he missed the Commonwealth Day Service Monday, a massive royal gathering of the queen and the rest of the monarchy at Westminster Abbey.

According to reports, he returned back to London late Tuesday afternoon.
