In keeping with regal protocol, female members of both the Dutch and British royal families wore ball gowns and tiaras.

THE pathologist who examined Princess Diana has revealed some of the questions he has been asked about the people's princess. Dr Richard Shepherd said he was inundated with questions about the Princess Di's autopsy but has long refused to reveal intimate details. He said: “People asked: 'Was she beautiful?' 'Was she peaceful?' 'Was she pregnant?’”, he said. “I always made sure I never said anything — in all the cases of public interest I was involved with — that hadn't already appeared in the press. “Pathologically there was no evidence that Princess Diana was pregnant, but some women say they know they're pregnant from the moment of conception.
