Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales, was known as the “People’s Princess”. She influenced the United Kingdom’s current royal family of Windsor and helped modernize the monarchy. Princess Diana led what seemed like a storybook life. Her devotion to her young sons was legendary. But all was not as it appeared. While known as a fierce trailblazer, advocate for the underserved, and style icon, Diana was emotionally fragile. This contradiction endeared her to women everywhere. Diana’s death at age 36 is a mournful touchstone for our era.
