What Was Princess Diana's Last Meal?

She dined on a simple meal at the Ritz Paris

August 31, 2018, marks the 21st anniversary of Princess Diana’s tragic death at the age of 36. And to mark this sad date, the world is being flooded with tributes remembering the life of this beloved mother, humanitarian, and cultural icon.

But there’s also the morbid curiosity into the life and death of Diana Spencer. After her divorce from Prince Charles, Princess Di was constantly surrounded by paparazzi and was the subject of much gossip. And the obsession with the People's Princess has barely been curbed since she passed away, especially with the recent wedding of her son Prince Harry to Meghan Markle.

So we had to ask, as 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 answer is surprisingly easily available. She enjoyed a meal of Dover sole, vegetable tempura, and a mushroom and asparagus omelette at the restaurant L’Espadon at the Ritz Paris.

Her final meal serves as a chilling reminder that she had no clue that her life was about to come to an end. By all accounts, the food served was rather unremarkable. And Princess Diana isn't the only celebrity with an infamous final meal.
