Remembering a Princess

August 31, 2017

People around the world are remembering Princess Diana, or the “People’s Princess,” twenty years after she was killed in a horrific car accident while being chased by paparazzi in Paris. She was known for her beauty, fashion, and ability to relate to others—especially children and commoners (people like you and me!)—but perhaps what she was best known for was changing the image of the Royal family from one that was untouchable and emotionless, to one that was more relatable and connected.

On the anniversary of her death, people placed flowers in front of Kensington Palace, while her sons, Princes William and Harry, visited the Kensington Palace memorial garden, a garden that was created in honor of Princess Diana.
