Diana, Princess of Wales was a member of the British royal family. She was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, the heir apparent to the British throne, and the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry. Diana's activism and glamour made her an international icon and earned her an enduring popularity as well as an unprecedented public scrutiny, exacerbated by her tumultuous private life. Diana was born into the British nobility and grew up close to the royal family on their Sandringham estate. The youngest daughter of John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer, and Frances Shand Kydd, she 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. Diana came to prominence in 1981 upon her engagement to Prince Charles, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, after a brief courtship.

About Princess Diana
Officially known as Diana, Princess of Wales, she married Charles, the Prince of Wales and the heir to the throne of 16 Commonwealth realms. She became an international icon for her beauty and her work with charities. Her death, which was reportedly caused by her driver's drunkenness, sparked widespread media attention and conspiracy theories.
She grew up in a strained house because of the pressure to have a son that would carry on the Spencer name.
Elton John sang "Candle in the Wind" at her funeral and the recording of this rendition became the best selling single of all time.
Prince Charles had an affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles while Charles and Diana were married.
