Diana, Princess of Wales

It’s been twenty years since a car accident in Paris brought an end to the life of one of the world’s most beloved figures, Princess Diana. In addition to the glamour she was well-known for, she also served as an important ambassador for the AIDS crisis, ensuring people that there was no need to treat those patients as lepers, as well as many other causes, including children’s charities and banning landmines. And though her death at 36 was a shock, her legacy as the “people’s princess” has lived on. Remember her through one of these books.
