When was Princess Diana buried?

She was originally going to be buried in the family vault of the local church in Great Brington but her brother, Earl Spencer was concerned about her grave becoming too much of an attraction.

He was also worried about public safety and security and wanted his sister to be buried where her grave could be looked after properly and visited in privacy by Prince Harry and Prince William.

She was buried on September 6, 1997.
