Tante Girang: Princess Diana

Tante Girang: Princess Diana Paid Tribute on Her 50th Birthday As Prince William and Duchess Catherine take Canada by storm this weekend, Friday marks another occasion in the young royal's life: the 50th birthday of his late mother, Princess Diana.

The occasion is hardly going unnoticed in London, where remembrances in the form of cakes, candles, cards and other tributes are being left outside the gates of Kensington Palace, home to Diana before she was killed in a 1997 car crash at age 36.  "She would've been so popular still. Everyone would have been here to help celebrate," Kathy Martin, 49, a childcare worker from Australia, tells the Associated Press. "We'll never get to see her grow old."
