Ten years after Princess Diana was involved in a ghastly car accident, one of the eyewitnesses revealed that she was not allowed to share her side of the story on the stand. According to her, the judge had a very strong reason why he prevented her from taking the stand, but she had no idea what it was. Princess Diana of Wales, the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry, was born on July 1, 1961, in Park House, Sandringham, Norfolk, England.
