Diana Spencer was born on the first of July, 1961 in Sandringham in England. She had two elder sisters and a younger brother. She was the youngest daughter of the Viscount and Viscountess Althorp, now the late (8th) Earl Spencer and the Hon.
In childhood she liked games, swimming, running and dancing. She wanted to become a dancer. Besides she loved children very much and at the age of sixteen she worked in schools for very young children.
For a while she looked after the child of an American couple, and she worked as a kindergarten teacher at the Young England School in Pimlico.
On the 24th of February, 1981 it was officially announced that Lady Diana would marry The Prince of Wales. Their families had known each other for many years, and Lady Diana and The Prince met when he had been invited to a weekend at Althorp in November 1977.
They were married at St Paul's Cathedral in London on the 29th of July, 1981. The ceremony drew a global television and radio audience estimated at around 1,000 million people, and hundreds of thousands of people lining the route from Buckingham Palace to the Cathedral.

They travelled a lot, they worked a lot, they visited many countries together. But Diana was not quite happy because they did different things and Charles didn’t understand her.
In December 1992 it was announced that The Prince and Princess of Wales had agreed to part. In November 1995 the Princess gave a television interview and told of her unhappiness in her personal life and the pressure of her public role. The Prince and Princess were divorced on the 28th of August, 1996.
The Prince and Princess continued to share equal responsibility for the upbringing of their children. She was to be known after the divorce as Diana, Princess of Wales, without the title of 'Her Royal Highness’.
Although the Princess, she was best known for her charitable work. During her marriage, the Princess was president or patron of over 100 charities. The Princess did much to publicise work on behalf of homeless and also disabled people, children and people with HIV/Aids.
She was a kind woman. Hundreds of people talked about Diana’s kindnesses. She liked ordinary people, though she was rich and had many rich friends. Wherever she was, she was always ready to lend a hand. She devoted much time to the sick and the poor. She visited hospitals for people with AIDS and for lepers and wasn’t afraid to touch them, talk to them, listen to them.
The Princess's last public engagements were during her visit to Bosnia from 7 to 10 August, when she visited landmine projects in Travnic, Sarajevo and Zenezica.
Diana was not only a beautiful woman, but she was also an outstanding personality. There were pictures of Diana in every country in the world. Everybody wanted to see them.
The tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales occurred on Sunday, August 31, 1997 following a car accident in Paris, France. The vehicle in which the Princess was travelling was involved in a high-speed accident in the Place de l'Alma underpass in central Paris shortly before midnight on Saturday, 30 August. The Princess was taken to the La Pitie Salpetriere Hospital, where she underwent two hours of emergency surgery before being declared dead at 03.00 BST.

Diana’s brother and her two sons, William and Harry, followed the coffin along the streets of London. Prince Charles and the Queen's husband, Prince Philip, walked with them.
More than a million people came to London to remember her. Nearly all of them carried flowers. They put thousands of flowers in front of Diana’s home, Kensington Palace.
People watched and cried. They listened to Elton John’s song “Goodbye, England’s Rose”.
Diana won our hearts because she wasn’t afraid to wear hers on her sleeve. She laughed heartily and cried when her tumultuous life overwhelmed her. She loved pop music. Her favourite singer was Chris de Burgh. He said sadly after her death, “A light has gone out on earth – and a new star shines brightly in heaven”.
