It’s Princess Diana’s 55th Birthday. Here How She Would Have Looked Today.
2017 will mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana. Although it’s been two decades since she died in that tragic car accident in Paris, France, she is not forgotten. Her two sons Prince William, second in line to the throne and Prince Harry keep her memory alive.
The brothers are the stewards of the Princess of Wales Memorial Fund as well as actively involved in humanitarian work. William admitted this year that time makes the pain of losing her easier but he misses her everyday. While Harry said he regrets not talking about her death until he was 28 years old.
Harry told Good Morning America that him and his brother William “will do everything we can to make sure that she’s never forgotten and carry on all the special gifts, as such, that she had and that she portrayed while she was alive. I hope that a lot of my mother’s talents are shown in a lot of the work that I do.”
Princess Diana may have been brought up among the aristocracy but she was quite down to earth.
In fact Diana's older sister, Lady Sarah, dated Prince Charles for awhile. She once told a classmate she wanted to be a ballerina when she grew up or Princess of Wales.

She was not just an aristocrat, she also had royal blood.
Princess Diana was related to Mary Queen of Scots. Her maternal grandmother Baroness Fermoy was one the Queen Mother’s ladies-in-waiting.
Her dress was adorned with 10,000 mini pearls and a 25-foot-long train.
"We knew it had to be something that was going to go down in history, but also something that Diana loved," said the designer Elizabeth Emmanuel.

It is reported that the silk-taffeta wedding dress cost £9,000.
She married Prince Charles on July 29, 1981 at St Paul's Cathedral. It was watched by 750 million people all over the world.

Her new status meant the world was always watching.
The paparazzi followed her everywhere despite heavy security. She was a favourite for magazines to use her on their covers.
