The Mirror (opens in new tab) has reported that Diana was awarded a sum of £17 million, plus £350,000 a year, and was allowed to keep her Kensington Palace apartments. She was however not permitted to keep her HRH title of 'The Princess of Wales', meaning she would lose her official connection to the Royal family, which left her distraught.

Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell said that his touching promise made her cry.
