Lady Diana Frances Spencer was born at home on July 1, 1961, in Norfolk, England (Morton 70). Her parents were very ashamed that she was a girl. They wanted a boy very badly to keep the Spencer name (Morton 71). Diana had two older sisters and one younger brother. She was always the closest to her brother, Charles, and admired him strongly (Vickers 160).
August 31, 1997, that was the day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died in a fatal car accident, alongside boyfriend, Dodi Al Fayed, and driver, Henri Paul. That was the day that not only England, but the world, mourned for the People’s Princess. What exactly occurred the night the Princess’s Mercedes crashed inside the Place de l’Alma tunnel? It was ultimately concluded that it was caused by a careless driver and some thoughtless pursuers. However, many citizens don’t buy into the official statements.
Diana tried to not let various things get her down, even though some could have destroyed her. Diana also spoke with surprising truthfulness about her own personal struggles with bulimia and suicide, giving individuals struggling with these issues a role model of openness and honesty. Princess Diana used her media popularity to bring attention to the needs of the forgotten and needy of the world. She was out to seek a symbol in everyone’s life, life itself. Princess Diana was born into a royal family and had a rather tough time growing up.
She lived with both of her parents in Burlington, California. Growing up, Shirley had a lot of tense relations with her parents, but mostly with her mother. Leslie Jackson, Shirley’s mother, set high standards for Shirley by the ways she was perceived by society and social norms. Shirley always seemed to disappoint her mother. The emotionally tearing and psychologically damaging relationship with her mother escalated to the point where her mother even told her she wished she had aborted Shirley.
