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'm not related to Diana myself (boo hoo) but I have a 3rd cousin (Stewart-22600) who is 6th cousin to Princess Diana through the Littlejohn family from Aberdeen in Scotland!! You can follow Diana's maternal line from Diana to Frances Roche to Ruth Gill to Ruth Littlejohn up to her great grandfather James Littlejohn, and then back down from his brother Peter, and his son Walter, through the Rough and then a marriage into the Fairbairn family. My connection to Margaret (Stewart-22600) is on the Fairbairn side. While I am not directly connected to Princess Diana, I am still thrilled that I have a cousin who is a cousin of the Princess!! This also means that the old degrees connection I had to Queen Elizabeth (which was 27 degrees) has now dropped to 17 degrees.

Diana is my 9th cousin, 3 times removed. Related through Thomas Strong. That would make her my great grandfather's 9th cousin. Awesome. :)

"Diana and Ken are 17th cousins

Relationships are based on shared ancestry. The first common ancestor we found for Diana (Spencer) Princess of Wales and Ken Wise is John Sulliard."

I am GOB-SMACKED! ...and obviously honored.
