MOHAMED AL FAYED
August 31 marks the 18th anniversary of the night Britain lost its People's Princess, but the memory of the tragedy lives on – especially for the family, friends and retainers who were closest to Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi Al Fayed, and whose lives were changed forever. Dodi's father, Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al Fayed, 83, remains convinced that the lovers were murdered on the orders of the royal family, and funded a 2011 documentary in support of his belief, even though an official 2007 inquest debunked it.

The bodyguard who was the sole survivor of the 1997 Paris car crash published a book in 2000 about his struggle with guilt and crippling injuries from the incident.

After Diana's trusted butler, now 54, was acquitted of stealing $7.5 million of the late royal's belongings in 2002, he wrote two tell-all books about her private life, which earned the wrath of her sons. He has appeared on several British and Australian reality shows over the years and now has a flower shop in the English village of Farndon.

DIANA AND DODI
Princess Diana's memory looms large even today, as the world was most poignantly reminded by her absence at the wedding of her eldest son, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. "I think she ... she would have loved the day and I think, hopefully, she'd be very proud," William said in May. "I'm just very sad that she's never going to get a chance to meet Kate."
