8 Iconic Images of Diana, Princess of Wales

Twenty years after her tragic death, Diana’s legacy lives on.

For decades, Diana Spencer captured a global audience of adoring fans as she transformed from a shy kindergarten teacher into the People’s Princess. Diana was unapologetically herself, a quality sometimes at odds with the rarified realm of the British royal family. A mother, a humanitarian, and a fashion icon, she remains a luminary figure and one of the world’s most beloved women. On the 20th anniversary of her tragic death, National Geographic celebrates her life and legacy with never-before-seen photos and fresh commentary in the book Remembering Diana.
