This year marks two decades since of the death of Princess Diana

Diana Frances Spencer was born on the 1st of July 1961, and grew up in Park House, situated on the Sandringham estate. 'Lady Di' stepped into the public limelight when she married Prince Charles, the heir apparent to the British throne, on the 29th of July 1981. An estimated 750 million people around the world watched the fairytale wedding live on TV.

Diana was seldom away from the public gaze and captured the nation’s hearts as England’s Rose. Her beauty and charisma meant she was one of the most photographed women in the world. In 2016, Diana was unanimously voted the most iconic woman of all time.

Diana is remembered fondly as the ‘Queen of Hearts’ due to her unwavering warmth and compassion, as evident when she shook the hand of an AIDS patient at an English hospital in 1991. This act of kindness made a huge difference in public attitude to the disease. In 1992 Diana comforted a dying woman at Mother Theresa's hospice in Calcutta, India. The experience was deeply spiritual for Diana, and she went on to support around one hundred organisations, including the Royal Marsden Hospital, the Leprosy Mission and the National Aids Foundation. Diana became a humanitarian ambassador: her mission for the British Red Cross as part of an international network, supporting a campaign banning landmines, attracted worldwide publicity.

Her tragic death at the age of 36, on the 31st of August 1997, in a car accident in Paris, was met with shock and grief worldwide. When her funeral was held on the 6th of September 1997, the procession and ceremony was watched on television in 60 countries around the world.
