These Princess Diana Quotes Fill Your Heart With Inspiration and Energy

When Diana Spencer married Prince Charles, the world opened its arms to the new royal bride. Princess Diana was an overnight hero, a youth icon, and a benefactor of the poor. She was a figure of passion, empathy, and kindness with the commoners; a trait regarded as unknown in the towers of British royalty. People thronged to wave at her, while she smiled benignly at every face.

Her married life was in turmoil, and it quickly slipped into a vortex of deceit, mistrust, and selfishness. Prince Charles shared a close bond with Camilla Parker-Bowles, and that caused a rift in the marriage. Post childbirth, Princess Diana grew increasingly distant from Prince Charles. Finally, in August 1996, Princess Diana legally divorced Prince Charles.

As Princess of Wales, Diana was involved with many charitable organizations. She sought to defy custom by involving herself with AIDS charitable programs. She was often photographed hugging an AIDS inflicted child. Diana was grounded in her beliefs, as she lacked the snobbish detachment associated with Buckingham Palace residents.

On August 31, 1997, Diana met with a terrible car accident in France. Her premature death on the streets of Paris shocked the world. The princess was gone too soon, and the world grieved its loss. Princess Diana's funeral drew the most number of mourners in London, with over 3 million people arriving at Westminster Abbey. The grief was staggering; its proportions were unheard of in British royalty.

Princess Diana continues to live in the hearts of her well-wishers. In these Princess Diana quotes, you will find the passion, aspiration, hopes and dreams of a young princess.
