Princess Diana was a member of the British royal family.
She was born in Norfolk, England in 1961.
She became royalty at age 20 when she married Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne.
The royal wedding had over 2000 guests.
Diana was known for her fashion sense, but also for her activism.
Throughout her life, Diana helped to raise awareness for people living with AIDS.
Sometimes she even brought her sons with her when she went to visit patients.
For this reason, she gained the nickname “The People’s Princess”.
Even after she and Charles separated in 1992, the British media continued to pay attention to Diana.
In 1997, she died in an accident after paparazzi tried to chase her car.
Over two billion people around the world watched her funeral live on television, and her family created a charity in her memory.
