More than 100 children from London hospitals supported by Princess Diana on Sunday visited the scene of the car crash in Paris where she was killed three weeks ago.

A convoy of 66 black taxis drove the 126 children, many in wheelchairs, to the Pont de l’Alma bridge along the Seine River where Diana’s Mercedes crashed in a traffic tunnel.

The children, from the Great Ormond Street and other London hospitals, stopped in the city on their way home to England after a visit to Disneyland Paris.

Diana regularly visited the Great Ormond Street hospital, and a spokesman for the hospital said the princess’s visits were treasured.
