Princess Diana was one of the most adored and a loved member of the British Royal family. A good mother and a a very down to earth lady, she left the world to tears with her departure. She would have turned 56 on 1st of July, this year if she had been alive and would have looked like the pearl beauty she was.
MET BY CHANCE
Diana’s elder sister, Lady Sarah was dating Prince Charles and that was when Diana met Charles. The relationship however didn’t last long and they broke up. It is said that Diana had a real crush on Charles when she met him and that she confessed this to her music teacher as well. Diana was 16 and Prince was 28 at that time.
DATING AND ENGAGEMENT
Diana and Charles started dating when Diana was 18 and Charles was 30. He proposed the very beautiful princess on February 6th, 1981 but this engagement was kept a secret for a few weeks.
A SCANDAL FOLLOWED
Diana had run into trouble for an engagement ring that she had chosen after their secret was out. It was all because she had picked up a ring consisting of 14 solitaire diamonds, that surrounded a 12-carat oval blue Ceylon sapphire set in 18-carat white gold from a catalogue instead of having it personally made.
DIANA’S WEDDING DRESS
Do I need to mention how much Diana’s wedding gown was praised, loved and is considered as one of the most famous dresses. It was a taffeta and antique lace gown with 10,000 mother of pearls with a 25 foot train and had a value of £9000 and is still one of the world’s closely guarded fashion secret.
A 56 YEAR OLD DIANA
Diana was so down to earth that she was loved by all and her death came as a shock. However, this is a snap that, we don’t know where it came from, but we think this is how Diana would have looked if she would have been alive today.
Diana had always tried bringing up her sons in a normal way other than the royal way and sent Prince William to the nursery school. She however once invited the supermodel, Cindy Crawford to dinner because Prince William had a crush on her.
Diana and Prince Charles married life came to an end when they divorced on August 28th, 1996 and received a sum settlement of 17 million pounds as well as 400,000 pounds a year.
A MEMBER STILL
Even after their official separation, the Buckingham Palace had announced that Diana, even after the separation would always remain a member of the Royal Family, as she was the mother of the second and third in liners of the throne.
Diana, 31st of August, 1997 died in a tragic car crash in Paris. Along with her died her companion, Dodi Fayed, and driver, Henry Paul. The whole world mourned as this news spread.
MOST IMPORTANT PERSON
She was named as one of the 100 most important people of the 20th century by the Times Magazine.
