For about $15, you can now own a piece of history. Princess Diana's will is one of millions that are now available with only a few clicks in a new online archive.
Her dispersal of her estate, which included leaving about $30 million to sons William and Harry, is one of 41 million wills dating back to 1858 available in a new British site that makes public records accessible online for a fee. The original documents are kept under security in a temperature-controlled facility in Birmingham. See Today Show Video Here
Following Diana's death at 36 in a car crash in Paris, her will stipulated that her mother should be consulted about her children's education and that $80,000 tax-free should be left to her butler and confidant, Paul Burrell.
"She wanted to make sure [her children] were showered with love,'' Robert Jobson, author of "The New Royal Family,'' told TODAY on Monday. "That's something she really agonized over when she split from Prince Charles. I think this will reflects that.''
