Diana: Glamorous And Tragic Life And Death Of a Princess
She was the “People’s Princess” beloved for her compassion as much as for her glamour.

Pretty Diana Spencer was a shy and charming assistant kindergarten teacher when she caught the eye of Prince Charles, heir to the throne of Great Britain.  Princess Diana marriageAt first, to the public, her story seemed like a fairytale. Pretty young girl plucked out of obscurity to marry the Prince. But the truth of her life was very different from the public perception.  

On a beautiful day In 1981, more than 750 million people alll around the world watched the 20-year-old Diana marry her charming  Prince amidst all the pomp and circumstance of the British Empire.

But barely more than 10 years later Princess Diana was a divorced woman with two children, suffering from depression, emotional problems and eating disorders, brought out on by the realization that her husband had been having an affair with a long time girlfriend.

After her divorce, she became an outcast from the British Royal family but even more beloved by the British public. She was seen as an affectionate and doting mother, an icon of fashion style, and most importantly as a tireless champion for humanitarian causes. She met with mother Theresa in an effort to bring attention to the global aid epidemic. She risked her life to try and read war zones of the scourge of land mines.  Princess Diana – land minesAll the while, her every move was followed by the rabid British press which detailed her every date, every vacation, and every outfit. When she died in a horrible car crash she was mourned by the world. Diana’s unexpected life, veering between glamour and tragedy and her sudden and controversial death make for an unforgettable story.
