Biography

Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales.

Diana was born on 1 July 1961, in Sandringham, Norfolk. She was the daughter of Edward Spencer and Frances Roche. She was therefore of Royal descent, her father tracing his ancestry back to Charles II and James II, and was to become one of the most famous women in the world.

On 29 July 1981, at age 20, Diana married Charles, and became the Princess of Wales. While married, her full title was Her Royal Highness The Princess Charles Philip Arthur George, Princess of Wales and Countess of Chester, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Carrick, Baroness of Renfrew, Lady of the Isles, Princess of Scotland.

Princess Diana died on 31 August 1997, after being fatally injured in a car crash in Paris, France. The enormous outpouring of grief, on a global scale[1], when her life was cut short was a demonstration of the love she gave to people in desperate need, through her fearless work for those with AIDS and casualties of land mines that was taken up by the United Nations, as well as her charity work for cancer and leprosy, and her devotion to her children, William and Harry.

Diana, Princess of Wales is 2 Degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms

I attended Diana's funeral in 1997 and was completely unaware of our connection.

Diana, Princess of Wales & I are 12th cousins, on my paternal Grandmothers side. Sir William Babthorpe (1528-1581) was 11th Great Grandfather to us both.

Interestingly, it appears that I am related to her father through my paternal Grandmothers side, and to her mother through my maternal Grandmothers side.
