Today marks 20 years since the untimely death of Princess Diana, one of the most influential women in history.
Renowned for her down-to-earth mannerisms and innate ability to connect with everyone regardless of race, age, gender and sexuality, it comes as no surprise that she was given the title of the “People’s Princess”.
Diana dedicated much of her time to working tirelessly for charities including The National Aids Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Centrepoint, concentrating on breaking the stigma around life-threatening illnesses.
And in order to do so, the Princess of Wales wasn’t afraid to break royal protocol. Whether it meant shunning gloves to shake the hands of HIV patients or removing her hat to hug children as she visited them in hospital, Diana truly lived up to her hopes of becoming a “Queen of People’s Hearts”.
And the late Princess of Wales will also remembered for her doting motherly role to sons Prince William and Prince Harry, who continue her legacy through similar charity work.
So as the nation marks the 20th anniversary of her tragic death, take a look at the charming memorabilia designed to celebrate the late royal’s remarkable life.
