Princess Diana • Diana was born Diana Frances Spencer,Norfolk, England • Diana was educated at Riddlesworth Hall,a preparatory school in Norfolk, and later at the West Heath school in Kent. She attended finishing school in Switzerland. • From 1979 until 1981 Diana worked as a kindergarten teacher at the exclusive Young England school in Pimlico, London.
Private Life • On February 24,1981, her engagement to Prince Charles, son of Queen Elizabeth II and the heir to the British throne, was announced. • They were married in St.Paul’s Cathedral in an internationally televised ceremony on July 29,1981, with an audience numbering in hundreds of millions.

In December 1992 a separation was announced. By that time Diana had adopted charity work as her royal duty. • In 1993 she briefly withdrew from public activities in an effort to avoid the negative publicity focused on her separation from Prince Charles • After divorce it was agreed that Diana would be known as Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, and would no longer be permitted to use the title Her Royal Highness. • The couple had shared custody of their children. • Diana died in a carcrash in Paris on the 27th August 1997
Why do I admire her? • Diana actively supported many charities related to homeless and deprived children, drug abuse, breast cancer, and victims of AIDS. In 1987 Diana sat with a man dying from AIDS and shook his hand, a gesture credited with promoting acceptance and compassion for people with the disease. • She was the vice president of the British Red Cross and served as a member of the International Red Cross advisory board. In 1997 Diana visited Angola and Bosnia and Herzegovina in support of a Red Cross campaign to ban landmines. • Apart from doing charity work, she also cared for her staff; she used to spend most of her time with her royal staff. • Diana was a loving mother and motherhood was made for her!
What can young people learn from her? Young people can learn that being famous and rich are not the two most essential things in your life. The most essential thing in life is to love others, as you want them to love you back. That is why Princess Diana was and still remains a lovable person. Although she was rich and famous, she was never afraid to do charity work in public, no matter what others say.
