From her carefree childhood days in the Spencer home at Althorp, to her tragic return, the people's love for this quite remarkable and unique women is unparalleled. Ever since her fairy tale marriage in 1981, Diana captivated the world with her beauty and her openness.
Her common touch endeared her to everyone she met, from world statesmen to the seriously ill, from sufferers of AIDS to the homeless and lonely. She used her own experiences of bulimia and the painful breakdown of her marriage to diminish the class barriers and bring to the fore such serious and contemporary issues.
Her controversial work highlighting the evil of land mines and the subsequent suffering of the innocent victims was, before her involvement, unseen by the eyes of the world. She gave her all in everything she did: in her charity work as a self-appointed ambassador and, above all, as a wonderful and devoted mother of Princes William and Henry.
She enriched so many people's lives and her unique aura of vulnerability and insecurity won her a special place in our hearts. This programme maps the key events in her life concluding with the funeral and the incredible pictures which captured a nations grief.
