Princess Diana was a trailblazer, activist, style icon, and one of the most influential people of the 20th century. Although she lived much of her life in the spotlight, under oppressive scrutiny, there’s much you probably don’t know about the beloved late royal. From her favorite fashion designer and pre-royal working life to her taste in music and her parenting style, here are 40 things to remember about the People’s Princess.
She was the fourth of five children.
Princess Diana had two sisters, Sarah (now Lady Sarah McCorquodale) and Jane (now Lady Jane Fellowes), and a younger brother, Charles Spencer (now Earl Spencer). Her other brother, John Spencer, died hours after his birth in January 1960, a year and a half before Diana was born.
