Our society is built of women and men. This includes women and men from all over the world. Our country’s founding fathers to our presidents. Normally, women didn’t get recognition in history as we do now. Women; Myself included are expected to cook, clean the house and have children. But we are more than that. Women are an essential factor in our world. Yes, Women have always been powerful but we are always underrated. It is 2019 and exactly right now society has started to really understand/grasp the true power of being a female. One woman who conquered all of these differences in the 1900s is the one and only Princess Diana of Wales. Lady Di made a huge impact from her early life to all her charities even fashion. How did a kindergarten teacher become a world icon?
From Norfolk, England on July 1st, 1961 an icon was born Diana Frances Spencer or now known as Princess Diana or Lady Di. Princess Diana’s early life involved being the youngest daughter of 4 children. At the age of 8, Lady Diana’s parents divorced and her father took custody. She went to a local school and hardly got an equivalent to a high school diploma. Although Lady Diana was not an exceptional student, she did excel in the arts like music, dancing, and swimming. In 1975 her father became the earl’s Spencer and then Diana became a lady. Soon after Lady Diana began to work as a kindergarten teacher with lots of charm but was seen as a shy person. By the end of the 1970s, Diana found her passion for children and teaching.
Diana then carried on with her life. Like any woman, working and having some love interest stir up in her life. Lady Diana met Prince Charles at a hunting party in 1977. Prince Charles is “ Prince of Wales is the heir apparent to the British throne as the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II.” Prince Charles was known as a very handsome man and being prince lifted the hearts of many including Lady Diana’s older sister Lady Sarah Spencer whom he dated for a year. Lady Diana and Prince Charles’s romance grew and they got married on July 29th, 1981. Their wedding was the wedding of the century, about 750 million people from all over tuned in to watch the couple say “I do”. Diana then earned the title of “Her Royal Highness Princess Diana of Wales”. Princess Diana got pregnant months after their wedding and had two children Harry and William. This is when Diana truly started to reveal who she was.
Diana was different from other Princesses as she wanted her children to have a normal life. Diana took her children to Mcdonalds, Disney World even a homeless shelter. Those occurrences really tested the boundaries as a princess and how she was raising her kids. Many remember her for bringing simplicity to the royal family. In 1993, Princess Diana took Harry and William to Thorpe Park, an amusement center near London where they savored the park beside everyone. The world liked that she was almost relatable. But Being a princess did come with lots of responsibilities and it could get overwhelming.
In 1992 a book about Diana revealed the amount of her ‘hopelessness’ her struggle with an eating disorder and attempts at self-harm and a very bad relationship with Prince Charles, which led them to separate. So all in all Diana got depression, had to deal with bulimia, and was suicidal. However, Diana turned to charities to help her cope with her illnesses. In a documentary, she had an interview and opened up about her struggles as a princess and it was really important that she did this because it showed that even the “Princess” has struggled as anyone could.

During all this time Diana became outstanding and active in charities and giving back to the community. We all know Charity is the act of giving love and compassion to people in need. It is an intentional action but the decision is made by the heart, without expecting anything in return. Charity is required in our societies. Charities are meant for public benefit and welfare. Most importantly it provides support for people in times of need in any part of the world, particularly victims of war, natural disaster, starvation, illness, and poverty. By doing simple acts like supplying people in need with medical aid and other needs. When we give to making the lives of a child, an adult, or even an animal better, it uplifts our well-being in the process and I think Princess Diana understood that.
Diana really put in the work when it came to these types of things like bringing awareness to those in need. She was admired by the world for her charity work her work with AIDS patients and for strengthening the campaign for banning landmines. She was an advocate to help those in need. Lady Diana was not playing any type of games when it came to her charity work.
In 1987, Princess Diana was one of the first popular figures to be photographed with a victim of AIDS. Princess Diana helped dramatically the charge to lift the stigma that HIV disease could be contracted by touch. In her own words, she stated: “HIV does not make people dangerous to know so you can shake their hands and give them a hug heaven knows they need it!” The London Middlesex Hospital is the UK’s first purpose-built HIV/Aids. Princess Diana went head-on without wearing gloves or wearing any type of clothing that would protect her from not contracting the disease by touch, Princess Diana went and shook the hand of a man suffering from the illness, openly defying the theory that HIV/Aids was transferred from person to person by touch.
After visiting Angola in 1997, Princess Diana became an advocate to clear landmines. People were missing limbs and getting killed because these landmines were not withdrawn from the grounds. Recognizing land mines are inexpensive to produce and simple to use. Their cost in human suffering and in financial failures is vast. In places like Cambodia, “1 in every 236 people is an amputee due to mines”.(New York Times). Lady Diana went on and supported a global treaty banning landmines. At the time she worked with organizations attempting to destroy them but it was seen as a political stance, not a charitable one. Diana had to go on and state in June of 1997 about her trip that “I am not a political figure. As I said at the time, and I’d like to reiterate now, my interests are humanitarian. That is why I felt drawn to this human tragedy,’ ‘How can countries which manufacture and trade in these weapons square their conscience with such human devastation?’. Many people in this day are agile to credit her with contributing to the passage of the Ottawa Mine Treaty (also known as the Mine Ban Treaty), which was signed by 122 states, not including the United States on December 3, 1997. According to the ICBL, the treaty is a legally binding international agreement that bans the use, production, stockpiling, and transfer of antipersonnel mines.’
From that moment the princess became an international figure, photographed and documented but most importantly she became an international fashion icon. In Diana’s eyes clothes were a personal passion but also a requirement of her because of her public status ( being a princess, advocate, and lady). Being one of the most important members of the royal family, her apparel conditions were set in a system that required ball gowns hats, shoes/heels, and purses, items that were not typical of young women in the early 1980s. Lady Di broke the stigma of being a princess and alive. Lady Diana used her style to send a message, she was unlike any other royal family member.
Diana’s style ranged from ‘sexy silhouettes to her eye for trends’, Diana’s fashion was a result of her fun, fresh character. Many saw Diana’s style as unroyal as she wore a range of ‘short skirts, sleeveless dresses, bold prints, and wasn’t afraid to bare her cleavage and body in figure-flattering ensembles.’ The fashion world and common young women related to her rebellious style choices. Lady Diana loved trends but she always wanted to wear clothes with a purpose. Particularly since Lady Diana was a humanitarian, she utilized her fashion options to get recognition from the press. The more attention there was on Diana, either what she was wearing or stating the more attention and awareness there was on what she was doing.
Princess Diana then got into a car accident in Paris trying to get away from the paparazzi. Her boyfriend at the time was already dead at the time when ambulances arrived. Lady Diana was hospitalized with no one knowing how she was. Lady Diana lost her life a few hours later on August 31st, 1997, having all parts of the world devastated. Most devastated being Britain which lingers to this day. In London, only a couple of after her passing her funeral was held. A predicted one million people filled the funeral route from her London home in Kensington Palace to Westminster Abbey.
There were many questions and grief about what happened on the day of the accident. Officials gathered information and were shocked to find out that Paul was drunk during the incident and he was also on prescription anti-depressants In reality, they went as far as to take tests of Paul’s blood after the accident and it was revealed that his alcohol levels were ‘more than three times the legal limit in France for drunk driving. Investigators believe this caused him to lose control of the Mercedes.'(history.com) The hearing ruled that both Paul and the paparazzi chasing Diana and Al-Fayed were held for the crash because of “gross negligence.” ‘The deaths of Diana and Al-Fayed were also ruled “unlawful killings”—the court equivalent of manslaughter, In addition, the jury ruled that the couple might have survived the crash had they been wearing seatbelts.'(in her eyes documentary). So Lady Diana wasn’t all that perfect either, who could forget to wear their seatbelts it’s a typical need when you step into a car. Many people were shocked when they saw that Lady Diana would have been saved if she had worn her seat belt.
Lady Diana was a symbol of feminine charm, beauty, and being a princess at the same time. It is said that throughout her life she was the ‘most photographed person in the world, appearing on the cover of People magazine more than anyone else.’ Diana changed the View on what a princess should be. She reached out and physically touched AIDS patients and gave them the awareness they needed. Lady Diana also traveled to former combat zones to highlight the dangers of landmines posed to civilians. The people truly felt they could relate to her when she described her battles with bulimia, depression, and loneliness. Lady Diana made the influence of promoting the royal family, making it more open and forming people’s opinions about what the royal family signified to them. Lady Diana was never afraid to say what was on her mind. Lady Diana would even go as far as to speak with people who were residing in tents or under bridges while cameras followed her, saying, “If I’m going to have cameras pointed at me the whole time, I might as well use all this publicity for good.” All in all Princess Diana contributed to many lives and to this day is one of the most respected PERSON, not a female or woman but a person regardless of gender.
