November 30, 2016 — It is hard to believe that it is almost 20 years since Diana, Princess of Wales died. 

She was possibly the world’s most famous woman at the time of her death, and certainly one of the most photographed. 

She was also one of the most beloved.

Marrying the Prince of Wales had brought her into the limelight, but her charity work, her beauty and style, her charisma and her ability to connect with people around the world made her a star in her own right.

Her shocking death upset people around the globe, disrupted the British Monarchy in ways no one could have anticipated and forced the royal family to deal with the tragedy they wanted to ignore. Almost two decades after her untimely death, she remains an immensely popular and divisive figure.
