The face of Princess Diana has appeared on the 13th pillar of the Pont de L'Alma Tunnel in Paris.

It comes on the 21st anniversary at the spot where she died in a fatal car crash.

But the artwork has upset a lot of people who drive through the busy tunnel each day.

French street artist 7 Nuit revealed he did the mural "at 4am to be sure there were not a lot of cars."

"I wanted to make a real tribute to Princess Diana," he revealed.

"She was a good person who made beautiful things for people all around the world and she stays in memories and will long be unforgettable."

The black and white image shows a smiling Diana wearing her iconic jewelry – including a necklace and earrings.

The artist revealed that he created his work because he was inspired by her life.

He added: "I remember the day she died very clearly, it was at the end of summer and I saw the news on TV.

"I could see people crying… it left me with a really sad feeling."

Princess Diana died on August 31, 1997, aged only 36.
