Book Summary: Learn how Lady Diana Spencer became the People's Princess as she takes her place in the ranks of the Who Was? series.

A shy twenty-year-old girl stepped out of a horse-drawn coach and into the world spotlight, capturing the imagination of millions as a real life fairytale princess. Although the storybook marriage didn't have a happy ending, Diana learned to use her fame as a way to champion charitable causes near to her heart. She became the People's Princess by humanizing the image of the royal family and showing care and concern for all people, including the homeless, the sick, and others in need.
Book Review: She was one of the most photographed women in the world.

She was once Lady Diana Spencer, 19, and relatively unknown to the photographers whom pursued Prince Charles during the early stages of his life. She would not become well-known until the two of them were caught fishing. From there, the world became fascinated by the nineteen-year-old and her wedding to Prince Charles on July 29th, 1981, would be known as the "Wedding of the Century."

During her marriage to Charles, she had two sons, William and Harry, and she would teach them the world outside the gilded palace gates by taking them to homeless shelters and teaching them that there was much more for them to learn.

Her death in 1997 would devastate a country but her sons continue to carry out her work,

This was a nice little book about Diana. There are amazing sketches of parts of her life. This would be a perfect gift for anyone whom had been caught up in the royal wedding fever during Harry and Megan's wedding. It is a great introduction to the woman whom brought the British Royal Family into the modern world and how she continues to this day to affect the work her children continue to carry out in her name.

The downside to this book is that it glosses over her life. Although there are some mentions of Charles and Diana's marriage falling apart, it doesn't really go into detail but I suppose this book is meant for younger audience and give them just a bit of small biography upon the subject of choice. Still if this does fascinate you about her, then there are plenty of reading material out there that would defintely be perfect for any reader interested in Princess Diana.

I would recommend this book to any Diana fan out there. It would be a really nice edition to your collection.
