Recognized as the People’s Princess for her nurturing and compassionate nature, as well as her love for ordinary citizens, Lady Di will forever remain a symbol of change for both Britain and the Monarchy.
This remarkable Princess stepped into the limelight with her engagement to Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest son and heir to the British throne. From the moment the world became aware of her, she was thrust into the spotlight. The paparazzi shadowed her every move, a relentless pursuit that some believe contributed to her tragic end.
The images that follow reveal a different facet of Diana, serving as a poignant reminder of why she was held in such high esteem.

Diana's engagement ring, unlike traditional royal custom, was not custom-made. Her 12-carat sapphire ring, encircled by 14 solitaire diamonds set in white gold, was selected from a Garrard jewelry collection catalog.
After her passing, the ring was passed on to Kate Middleton, who received it as an engagement token from Prince William.
On her wedding day, Diana's excitement led her to inadvertently address her future husband as Philip Charles Arthur George, rather than Charles Philip.
According to her brother Charles Spencer, Diana initially struggled with wearing a tiara due to the headaches it caused. "In the evening, we all went to a semi-private party, and she was there, and I just remember she had a cracking headache because she wasn't used to wearing a tiara all morning," he recounted in an interview.
While her wedding dress was undoubtedly exquisite, it posed challenges. The designers of the 25-foot train had not anticipated the difficulty Diana would face in walking with it. As she entered the carriage, her dress crinkled and wrinkled.
In response to inquiries about their love shortly after their engagement, Charles responded with a cryptic "Whatever 'in love' means," to which Diana countered, "Of course."

The gifts bestowed upon Charles and Diana were exquisitely unique. The Reagans, for instance, presented them with a handcrafted porcelain centerpiece and an engraved Steuben glass bowl. Among other treasures, they received century-old silk gloves and a diamond and sapphire-studded timepiece.
Following the wedding, it became public knowledge that Charles and Diana shared a common ancestor in Henry VII of the Tudors, making them 16th cousins once removed.
