Had she lived, Princess Diana would have been 50 on Friday, July 1. In honor of her memory on what would have been her 50th birthday, admirers of the late People's Princess gathered outside Kensington Palace in London and left remembrances in the form of cakes, candles, cards and other tributes outside its gates.
Kathy Martin, a childcare worker from Australia, told the Associated Press, "She would've been so popular still. Everyone would have been here to help celebrate. We'll never get to see her grow old." Another visitor said, " was an icon, Grace Kelly was an icon, and Princess Diana was an icon. They all died young. They'll be remembered as princesses - beautiful, radiant, princesses."
