Beautiful Lady Diana Frances Spencer married Prince Charles in 1981. Retentive her title and her fame after the royal couple divorced in 1996, Diana continued her charitable work. She died in a tragic car accident in 1997.

Honorable Diana Frances Spencer was born on July 1, 1961, in Norfolk, England. She grew up next door to the royal family's Sandringham estate. One of Diana's playmates was Prince Andrew, Charles's brother.

Early in their marriage, Diana and Charles were seen to be publicly affectionate; by 1986, their time apart and coolness when together were obvious. The 1992 publication of Andrew Morton's biography of Diana revealed the story of Charles' long affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, and alleged that Diana had made suicide attempts. By December, the couple had agreed to a legal separation, plans for a divorce.

The divorce was final in August of 1996. At her divorce, she also gave up most of the charities she'd been working with, limiting herself to five, working with homelessness, AIDS, leprosy, the ballet, a hospital for children, and a cancer hospital.

In 1997, Diana was linked romantically with the 42-year-old playboy "Dodi" Fayed (Emad Mohammed al-Fayed). His father, Mohammed al-Fayed, owned Harrod's department store and the Ritz Hotel in Paris, among other holdings. Both had somewhat spotty ethical reputations.

Late on August 30, 1997, Diana and Dodi left the Ritz Hotel in Paris, accompanied in a car by an al-Fayed family driver and Dodi's bodyguard. They were pursued by paparazzi, and crashed in a tunnel in Paris. Diana died in the early hours of August 31.

Diana's funeral on September 6, 1997, was seen by billions worldwide via television. She is buried on an island on the Spencer family estate.
