Summary

The fairytale wedding of Lady Diana Spencer to Prince Charles in 1981 was considered the social event of the century. Called the "People's Princess," Diana embodied style, grace, and beauty. Bearing the royal family two heirs to the throne, William and Harry, the princess lived in a world besieged by flashbulbs and rumormongering press. But the fairytale marriage was short lived. She struggled privately with her weight and publicly with the separation and eventual divorce from Charles. In her post-royal life, Diana forged a new purpose as a humanitarian who drew attention to those suffering from diseases and catastrophes. Killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997, Diana left a legacy of goodwill through her charity work and her sons. In Diana, Princess of Wales: Humanitarian, read about a woman who overcame personal turmoil to make considerable and lasting contributions to the world at large.
