55 Best Princess Diana Quotes From The People's Princess

Princess Diana quotes reflect her love for family.

Diana, Princess of Wales was born into a British noble family and later became a member of the British royal family.

She was the first wife of Charles, the Prince of Wales. She was also the mother of Prince Harry and Prince William.

Diana, Princess of Wales carried this title beautifully when she did everything she could for the poor and the vulnerable in society. But the beautiful soul left us too quickly when she died in an accident in 1997. Everyone in the Royal family has honored her since. Like, when Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with Princess Diana's ring and said it was his way of making sure his mother was at his wedding. The ring is with Duchess Kate ever since. So, like Diana would, one random act of kindness each leaves us with the knowledge that one day someone might return the kindness.
