Princess Diana

Diana Frances Spencer (1 July 1961 - 31 August 1997) was a member of the British royal family. She was the first wife of King Charles III (then Prince of Wales) and mother of Princes William and Harry. Her activism and charm made her a worldwide icon, earning her enduring popularity.

Born into British gentry, Diana grew up close to the royal family at their home at Sandringham. In 1981, while working as an assistant nursery teacher, she became engaged to the Prince of Wales, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II. Their wedding took place at St Paul's Cathedral in 1981 and made her Princess of Wales, a role in which she was enthusiastically received by the public. The couple had two sons, William and Harry, who were second and third in the line of succession to the British throne. Diana's marriage to Charles suffered from incompatibility and extramarital affairs. They divorced in 1992, shortly after the breakdown of their relationship became public knowledge. The marital difficulties were widely publicized, and the couple divorced in 1996.

As Princess of Wales, Diana assumed royal duties on behalf of the Queen and represented her in functions across the Commonwealth realms. She has been celebrated in the media for her unconventional approach to philanthropy. Her care initially focused on children and the elderly, but she later became known for her involvement in two specific campaigns: one involved social attitudes towards and acceptance of AIDS patients, and the other to clear landmines, which was promoted through International Red Cross. She also raised awareness and advocated for ways to help people with cancer and mental illness. Diana was initially known for her shyness, but her charisma and friendliness endeared her to the public and helped her reputation survive the acrimonious breakdown of her marriage. Seen as photogenic, she was a trendsetter in the 1980s and 1990s.

Diana's death in a Paris car crash in 1997 led to widespread public mourning and worldwide media attention. A verdict of "unlawful killing" was returned by an inquest following Operation Paget, an investigation by the Metropolitan Police. Her legacy has had a profound impact on the royal family and British society.
