Born Lady Diana Frances Spencer into the British nobility on July 1, 1961, Diana grew up close to the royal family's private Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England.
The youngest daughter of John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer, and Frances Shand Kydd, Diana was strongly affected by their divorce in 1967. She did not distinguish herself academically, but was talented in music, dance, and sports. In 1978, she moved to London, where she lived with flatmates and took on various low-paying jobs.All of this changed when Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, began to pursue her seriously. Diana came to prominence in 1981 upon her engagement to Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, after a brief courtship. 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. Diana was celebrated for her unconventional approach to charity work.
Her patronages initially centered on children and youth, but she later became known for her involvement with AIDS patients and the campaign to remove landmines. She also raised awareness and advocated ways to help people affected with cancer and mental illness. As princess, Diana was initially noted for her shyness, but her charisma, sincerity and friendliness endeared her to the public and helped her reputation survive the acrimonious collapse of her marriage. Considered very photogenic, if not downright beautiful, she was an icon of high style and fashion in the 1980s and 1990s.Charles and Diana had two sons, the princes William and Harry, who were then second and third in the line of succession to the British throne. Diana's marriage to Charles, however, suffered due to their incompatibility and extramarital affairs. They separated in 1992, soon after the breakdown of their relationship became public knowledge. The details of their marital difficulties became increasingly publicized, their marriage ending in divorce in 1996. Tragically, Princess Diana, the People's Princess, died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
The outpouring of grief, not just from the British public, but from around the world, was unprecedented, resulting in global media attention, and the poignant scene of her two sons walking along behind her coffin during the funeral procession through the streets of London.
