Princess Diana ‘gave the right image’ as a royal who continues to inspire Prince William, Prince Harry: author


Princess Diana lost her life in a tragic accident that shocked the world – but her legacy is still making an impact decades later.

On Thursday, her sons Prince William and Prince Harry will lead a ceremony honoring their late mother with a memorial statue unveiling at Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden. The date, July 1, marks what would have been her 60th birthday.

In her lifetime, the preschool teacher-turned-princess helped make the British monarchy more accessible, forever changing the way the royal family related to people.

She interacted more intimately with the public, such as kneeling to the level of a child, sitting next to a patient on a hospital bed, and even writing personal notes to fans, allowing her to connect with the public in a way that has continued to inspire other royals, including her sons.
