Profile of the Day: Princess Diana

Princess Diana

Today we remember Princess Diana, who passed away on this day 21 years ago.

She was born on July 1, 1961 in Park House, Sandringham, Norfolk and was the fourth of five children born to John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and Frances Roche. Her family had been closely allied with the British Royal Family for several generations. Both of her grandmothers served as ladies in waiting to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Diana grew up on the Sandringham estate, where she played with Princes Andrew and Edward as a child.

Remembered as “the People’s Princess,” Diana was known for her compassion and charitable efforts around the world. Since her death in 1997, her sons, Princes William and Harry, continue to honor her work and memory. The Duke of Cambridge also honored his mother’s memory by bestowing his daughter with his mother’s name, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
