Princess Diana

Programme that offers a female perspective on the world. 20 years on from the death of Princess Diana, we look at her lasting legacy.

Princess Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997. Twenty years on we look back at her life with the writer and columnist Joan Smith and former Royal protection officer Ken Wharfe. What is her legacy to women? Why does she continue to be a stand-out member of the Royal Family? And what impact did the princess have on black women? Jane Garvey talks to Chaédria LaBouvier, a culture and politics writer and Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff, a freelance journalist and a writer for the online magazine Gal-Dem.
