princess diana picture Diana, Princess of Wales died on Sunday, 31 August 1997 following a car crash in Paris. The worldwide public mourning at the death of Lady Diana shows the sympathy to this incredible women. Even after her death, however, the Princess is still in the public interest and from time to time some secret news get published.
Already in her lifetime, after Dianas marriage with Prince Charles, she was called "the Queen of Humanity". She was a real royal star and one of the most fascinating woman of her time. The crisis in her married life and the following separation didn`t change the public sympathy to Diana. If you want deeper informations, photos or something more about Princess Diana, then have a look at the following links.



Early Years of Princess Diana
Diana was the youngest daughter of Frances Ruth Burke-Roche (daughter of the fourth Baron Fermoy) and Edward John Spencer, Viscount Althorp. Therefore Diana was a direct descendant of King Charles I of England. On the death of her paternal grandfather, Albert Edward John Spencer, 7th Earl Spencer in 1975, Lord Althorp became the eighth Earl Spencer, and his daughter Diana acquired the courtesy title of Lady Diana Spencer. She was educated in Norfolk and at boarding school in Kent.  At 16 Diana attended Institut Alpin Videmanette, a finishing school in Rougemont, Switzerland.

 

Marriage and Family Life
In 1980, at the age of 19 DIana caught the eye of the Prince of Wales, Charles on a polo match. A romance began and he proposed to her in February of 1981. Their wedding took place at St Paul's Cathedral in London on July 29, 1981, in front of a massive global television audience. Diana Spencer was now the first Englishwoman to marry an heir to the throne since 1659 when Lady Anne Hyde married the Duke of York, the future James II of England.

Diana gave birth to two children, Prince William Arthur Philip Louis in 1982 and Prince Henry Charles David Albert in 1984.

After the birth of William, Diana sufferred from post-natal depression. She later developed the eating disorder bulimia nervosa, and made a number of suicide attempts. Her most serious suidice attempt was in 1982 when, while pregnant with Prince William, she threw herself down a set of stairs. It has been suggested that in her suicide attempts the Princess did not in fact intend to end her life, and was merely making a 'cry for help' (so-called 'parasuicide'). In one of her own interviews, released after her death, she said that Charles, Prince of Wales had accused her of crying wolf when she threatened to kill herself. But, although her life may not have been in serious danger, there was certainly a significant risk that she would miscarry her baby.

In the later 1980s her marriage to Charles fell apart, an event at first kept quiet and then sensationalised by the world media. Both Charles and Diana had friends who spoke to the press, accusing the other party of adultery. Charles had a relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles (the so-called Squidgygate affair), while Diana was seeing James Gilby, and she later confirmed she had had an affair with James Hewitt (her riding instructor).

Although Diana and Charles separated in 1992, their divorce was not finalised until August 1996.

 

Charity Work
During the mid-to-late 1980s, Diana became well known for her support of charity projects, and is given considerable credit for her campaigning against the use of landmines and diminishing the stigma associated with AIDS.

In April 1987, Diana was the first high-profile celebrity to be photographed touching an AIDS-infected person. Her contribution in changing the public opinion of AIDS sufferers was summarised in December 2001 by Bill Clinton at the 'Diana, Princess of Wales Lecture on AIDS', when he said:

In 1987, when so many still believed that AIDS could be contracted through casual contact, Princess Diana sat on the sickbed of a man with AIDS and held his hand. If the Princess of Wales could hold the hand of a man with AIDS, who could claim to be above it? She showed the world that people with AIDS deserved not isolation, but compassion. It helped change world opinion, helped give hope to people with AIDS, and helped save lives of people at risk.

Perhaps her most widely publicised charity appearance was in January 1997, when she visited the HALO Trust de-mining organisation on-site in Angola. The pictures of Diana touring a minefield, in helmet and flak jacket, were seen worldwide. In August that year she visited Bosnia with the Landmine Survivors Network. Her interest in landmines was focussed on the injuries they create, often to children, long after the conflict for which they are intended has finished. She is widely credited as an influence on the British Government, and other nations, in their signing of the Ottowa Treaty in December 1997 (after Diana's death) banning anti-personnel landmines.
