From the Inside Flap
When the world first met Diana Spencer, she was a 19 year-old kindergarten teacher, engaged to marry the heir to the British throne. Their romance and royal wedding were straight out of a fairy tale. Their marriage, sadly, was not. But the union produced two beautiful boys, the princes William and Harry.
Diana found a way to use her position and privilege to give love and hope to millions of people in need. Whether embracing a baby with AIDS, holding the hands of a leper, or comforting the dying, Diana opened her heart to the world. And the world, in turn, received her with deep and enduring affection.
She didn't need a palace to be a true princess.
