Earlier in the day, people were seen gathering at Kensington Palace in London, which was Diana's residence until her death. Supporters left flowers on the gates and cut a cake with her photo on it.

People are also remembering the Princess in Paris, where she was killed in a horrific car crash along with her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, and driver Henri Paul.

Elton John, Diana’s close friend, posted a photo on Twitter with the caption, "20 years ago today, the world lost an angel."

The singer performed a rewritten version of his hit song "Candle in the Wind" at Diana’s funeral back in 1997
