Original name Diana Frances Spencer, known as Diana, Princess of Wales (1961–1997)   

British royalty. Born Diana Spencer on July 1st, 1961, near Sandringham, England. Diana, Princess of Wales, was one of the most adored members of the British royal family. She was the daughter of Edward John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and Frances Ruth Burke Roche, Viscountess Althorp (later known as the Honorable Frances Shand Kydd). Her parents divorced when Diana was young, and her father won custody of her and her siblings. She was educated first at Riddlesworth Hall and then went to boarding school at West Heath School.  

She became Lady Diana Spencer after her father inherited the title of Earl Spencer in 1975. Although she was known for her shyness growing up, she did show an interest in music and dancing. Diana also had a great fondness for children. After attending finishing school at the Institut Alpin Videmanette in Switzerland, she moved to London. She began working with children, eventually becoming a kindergarten teacher at the Young England School.  

Diana was no stranger to the British royal family, having reportedly played with Prince Andrew and Prince Edward as a child while her family rented Park House, an estate owned by Queen Elizabeth II. In 1977, she became reacquainted with their older brother, Prince Charles, who was 13 years her senior.

  1. I totally loved Princess Di. I saw her as an icon, a role model. She always seemed perfectly composed and beautiful. It was a shock to learn that she was in an unhappy marriage and suffered from depression and the condition bulimia. The amazing smile she wore on her face hid all the hurts and pains she was going through. How could anyone be unhappy in a royal family? It’s a reminder that challenges follow any and everyone; it does not discriminate; no one is exempted. Even after her death, she is still one of the top leading ladies of the world, leaving a legacy of courage and strength for women across the world.

    I can relate to her situation as i was a battered woman for 15 years. I am a survivor and likemany know one knew. Everyone thought we had a fairytale marriage snd behing closed doors it was a house of horror. Un fortunately Princess Diana did not survive to tell her story or was able to actually live a full, healthy and happy life.Bless her soul.
