When I heard about England, I suddenly remembered Lady Diana. Who doesn't know Princess Diana? Killed in a car crash in August 1997, she had made a big impact on England. Princess Diana was born on 1st July 1961 and married Prince Charles on 29th July 1981. The couple had 2 sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Unfortunately, the fairy tale wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles did not end as a happily-ever-after marriage. The couple's separation was announced in December 1992 and the divorce was finalized in 1996.
Even after the divorce, Diana maintained a high level of popularity. She devoted herself to her sons and to such charitable efforts as the battle against the use of land mines. She served as a strong supporter of many charities and worked to help the homeless, people living with HIV and AIDS, and children in need.
On the night of August 1997, she died in a car crash. News of her sudden, senseless death shocked the world. Not only in England, but people all over the world paid tribute during her funeral procession. She was one of the greatest women I know.
