The beloved “people’s princess,” who died when she was only 36, was—and remains—one of the 20th century’s most intriguing public figures. She wooed the world with her graceful elegance, effortless poise, charitable heart and hundred-watt smile.
Nineteen years after her shocking death, her legacy burns bright, living on through her sons Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as through William and Kate Middleton‘s children, Prince George andPrincess Charlotte.
Diana redefined what it meant to be a royal at the time. Her humanitarian efforts, relatable nature and fearless fashion choices made her an icon—and we can see her trailblazing efforts in the modernized version of public life practiced by Will and Kate.
