Princess Diana was one of the most famous and pictured of women in the world! While it seems like her every move was documented in the ’80s and ’90s by paparazzi, there are many vintage and rare pictures that have been widely unseen by the public providing a more intimate look into her life.

Known as “The People’s Princess,” Lady Diana will be forever remembered not only for her beauty and fashion sense but also for her humanitarian work and kindness. She was one of the first members of the Royal Family to advocate for AIDS prevention and treatment. She visited Africa numerous times to try to help those in need. This was extra special because at this time in history many people held negative stereotypes about AIDS and AIDS sufferers. Moreover, Princess Diana also very much supported educational causes and helped many children in need.
Diana as a person was clearly amazing, as was her fashion sense. She had a number of classy, elegant and progressive looks. Many of her outfit choices became trends around the world, and how can we forget her hair? Even her new haircuts made headlines.

Her wedding dress was made in secret, and still to this day her train in the longest in royal history. She led such an interesting life, of course, we want to see more of her despite her passing!
