The 10th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in a car crash in Paris was marked with a memorial service in London and tributes across Britain.

Princes William and Harry lead the readings for their mother at Guards Chapel, near Buckingham Palace.

Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed, whose son Dodi died in the crash alongside Princess Diana, laid flowers at a shrine he has built at the London store.

The official ceremony to mark ten years since her death has been described as a service of thanksgiving.

The ceremony began at noon in the Guards Chapel at London's Wellington Barracks, which is the regimental chapel of Diana's sons.

The two princes oversaw the arrangements.

The Queen and Prince Philip were in attendance, as was Prince Charles.

His partner Camilla Parker Bowles chose not to join the other 500 guests who included the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, as well as celebrities, rock stars, friends and charity workers.

The anniversary has been marked by enormous reflection in Britain on Diana's life and death, especially whether the events of ten years ago significantly changed the nation's character or the perception of the monarchy.
