Lady Diana passed away on this day, eighteen years ago and left behind a gloomy world that mourned her death.
Princess Diana will be famous for a lot of things, most perhaps for her beauty and modest nature. She was born on 1st July 1961 in the English city of Norfolk and since the very beginning, was more interested in charitable activities as opposed to educational ones.
On 29th July 1981, Lady Diana married Prince Charles, which was referred to as a ‘fairy tale marriage’. Prince William and harry were born from this marriage of Diana with Charles. However, Charles’ cold nature towards the lofty princess caused their marriage to suffer, ending ultimately in divorce in 1996.
Her divorce was also not able to curtail Diana’s fame due to her beauty. The fact that she was the most photographed person in the world, is testament to the fact that Lady Diana was gorgeous. Owing to her failed marriage, Princess Diana involved herself in philanthropic activities, so as to keep herself busy.
She used to raise the issues of land mines and also caused AIDS awareness worldwide. In 1987, Princess Diana became the first ever celebrity to touch a person infected with AIDS and this act alone persuaded many people to change their view regarding the fatal disease.
Following her divorce, reports of her affairs with Dodi Fayed and British-Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan surfaced in the media.
Princess Diana passed away following a fatal car crash, on August 31, 1997. Lady Diana was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1997.
