The obsession with the British royal family and the “People’s Princess” has not let up since she died, especially with the rising celebrity of Princess Di’s sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.

With that fascination also comes a morbid curiosity into the details of the life and death of Diana Spencer. Many have wondered: Before Princess Diana died along with boyfriend Dodi Fayed and driver Henri Paul in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris, what was her final meal?

The dinner was surprisingly simple. It’s been reported that she enjoyed a meal of Dover sole, vegetable tempura and a mushroom and asparagus omelet at the restaurant L’Espadon at the Ritz Paris.
