Diana Frances Spencer or Princess Diana as she was commonly known was born on July 1, 1961 into a wealthy English family. She was married to the Prince Charles of Wales and hence started a spell full of media attention and scrutiny. Her marriage ended in divorce in August 1996 but her popularity remained unchanged.
A crowd favourite for years and a popular media icon, Diana, left the world shocked as the news of her untimely death in a high-speed car accident arrived in August, 1997.
Apart from her royal associations, Diana, was often in news for her dazzling personality and her charity work for which she received several recognitions as well.
She once said, “I don't go by the rule book... I lead from the heart, not the head”, which truly defines the person she was.
