Fire Chief Shares Princess Diana's Last Words After Fatal Car Crash

It's hard to believe it's been almost 25 years since the world lost one of the most beloved celebrities of all time. Lady Diana Spencer changed the world and the way the public saw the Royal family. Princess Diana wanted to make the world a better place, and her legacy lives on through her children.

As fans prepare to mourn the beloved Royal on the 24th anniversary of her death later this month, a fire chief is sharing what he believes are Princess Diana's last words.

As fans will recall, Princess Diana Spencer was born on July 1st, 1961 to her parents John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer, and Frances Roche.

Diana's parents could have never guessed what legend would soon take the Royal family by storm.

Marrying Prince Charles at just 20 years old in 1981, Diana was thrust into the spotlight from that moment on.

She and Charles would have two sons, William and Harry.

Her sons, her daughter's-in-law, and her grandchildren have given her so much to be proud of.

Diana and her legacy will be forever missed by friends, family, and fans across the world.

Now, as fans prepare to mark the 25th anniversary of Diana's death, one fire chief who was on the scene of the Princess' fatal car crash is remembering her final words.

Sgt. Xavier Gourmelon recently spoke with the "Daily Mail" and explained that when he arrived at the crash on Saturday, August 30th, 1997, Diana was still "moving and talking."

“She spoke in English and said, ‘Oh my God, what’s happened?’ I could understand that, so I tried to calm her," he recalled. "I held her hand."

Xavier has given statements to police before but has never before spoken to the press.
