Trendy Notes: Princess Diana Remembered

 

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since the world lost Princess Diana, the once future Queen of England and mother to Prince William and Prince Harry.

 

Diana entered the global stage as a shy 19 year-old who despite an intact pedigree still had the traits of a humble down-to-earth girl who spent her time wading her way through a mirage of jobs. She worked as dance instructor, a party hostess and finally as a nanny for an American family living in London.

How does a nanny become a real life Princess overnight? By marrying the first son of the Queen of England and inheriting the title of Princess of Wales.

It was a fairy tale come true and we all bought it but unfortunately fairy tales do have a lifespan and at the age of 34, Diana was a divorced mother of two who was determined to use her unique position as an ex-Royal for the betterment of her loyal subjects around the world.

Her untimely death in a car crash in Paris in the summer of 1997 was an unfathomable tragedy and a bitter end to a life that held so much promise. Her eldest son’s wedding last spring was a brutal reminder of her abrupt departure and the fact that Prince Charles is now betrothed to her once incessant torment, Camilla Parker-Bowles makes the irony almost unbearable. But  her legacy is perfectly intact thanks to her beloved Princes.

We have selected a few images that help verify why Princess Diana was truly the Queen of hearts.
