英国王妃戴安娜1997年8月31日在巴黎遇车祸丧生。人们痛悼戴妃,绝非因为她的地位和金发,也不是因为她的年青和美丽,主要是因为她平易近人,心地善良。在戴妃辞世5周年之际,让我们一起怀念这位“人民的王妃”。

据报载,戴安娜可能是世界上最热心、也是最成功的集资者。她生前曾与英国100多个慈善团体有联系, 并把精力集中于由她担任主席的6个慈善团体。这些团体主要的资助对象是老人、儿童、癌症和艾滋病患者以及无家可归者。戴安娜不但通过许多社会活动为这些团体筹款,她自己也常常直接捐款。单是在纽约拍卖她的服装一项,戴安娜便为慈善事业捐款350万英镑,其中100万英镑用于癌症的治疗与研究。戴安娜经常走访医院和其他福利机构。她亲自去看望艾滋病人,跟他们面对面地交谈,并且坚持在与他们握手时不戴手套。这一行动既给艾滋病患者带来生活的勇气与希望,也使社会受到震动。    戴安娜生前曾担任英国红十字会的顾问,她为禁止在战争中使用地雷进行了不懈努力。她曾访问了安哥拉和波黑,她以自己勇敢的行动向世人警示战争的残酷并呼唤人类的良心。在很多人看来,戴安娜就是禁雷运动。
