30 Rare Photos Of Princess Diana

Princess Diana was absolutely one of the most pictured women in the world! Her every move was documented in the 80s and 90s by paparazzi. Her death took the world by storm, and many point their fingers at the insane tabloid culture. While it does seem like she was always in the spotlight, we have collected a number of rare pictures that give a more intimate look into her life. Enjoy the following pictures that show a very special side of Diana before her life came to an end.

Diana Spencer was anything but just a fairytale princess. While books and movies depict a glamorous and sparkling clean princess, Princess Diana was one to get her hands stuck in the mud of it all. Hundreds of thousands of people’s lives were touched by Princess Diana’s pure love for humanity and all that it includes.

The night that Princess Diana was killed in a horrific car crash in a Paris tunnel, the world was shocked beyond words. She, her companion, Dodi Fayed, and their French driver, Henri Paul, all lost their lives when their car veered out of control. There was a lot of blame thrown about following the tragic incident, with the majority of it being put on the ruthless paparazzi. Princess Diana was arguably the most photographed woman at the time, and journalists were receiving a fortune of money for every photograph they managed to snap.

Later, after a long and acrimonious investigation, the fingers were pointed in a different direction. The blood alcohol levels of their driver, who was also killed in the crash, indicated that he was over the limit. It didn’t make matters any better when it was discovered that he had been taking prescription medication that didn’t mix well with alcohol.

The night that Princess Diana’s life was taken, the world wept in unison. She was an advocate for the people, something that seemed to stand contrary to what the archaic royal family had seemed to stand for in the past. It was Princess Diana who brought her two children, Prince William and Prince Harry, out into the world beyond the privilege of the palace. She insisted on taking her children on public buses, into fast-food restaurants and out into public areas where the ‘real’ people lived. From visiting landmine victims in Angola to warming the hearts of AIDS victims in the heart of London, Diana was all heart.
