(CBS News) Princess Diana died 16 years ago in a high-speed car crash in Paris, but the shock still lingers. The Princess of Wales was just 36 years old.

Diana enthusiasts still make the trip to Kensington Palace to lay flowers or travel to Diana’s family seat of Althorp to remember the “people’s princess,” royal commentator Roya Nikkhah said on “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”

As for Princes William and Harry, it’s unknown how they’ve marked the anniversary through the years, as it is a private affair, but it’s believed that Prince William is currently in Anglesey with his wife, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry is on military duty in Suffolk.

The royals - and particularly the newest royal, Prince George - have largely dropped out of the public eye since the baby’s birth in July, Nikkhah said. Though Prince William and Kate were seen at a marathon kickoff on Friday, Prince George was not with them and has not been seen in public since the days after he was born and via photos released to the media.

Nikkhah said there’s hope for royalwatchers though as the baby will likely be attending a wedding in two weeks in which Prince William will be best man.
