Have you ever heard of this woman named Princess Diana? I'm sure you have, and if you haven't, you've been living under a rock. Princess Diana is one of the most relatable, down to earth and human-like members of the royal family to have ever lived. She has captured the world and all of our hearts based on her kindness, good heart and beauty. She truly is the people's princess.
Princess Diana was always a little outside of the box, even since childhood. She did not really have the traditional royal upbringing and grew up quite 'normal'. Not to say that Diana lived a sheltered, untouchable life, but she proved to follow her heart and her passion throughout her life. Lady Diana always did what she wanted, despite public opinion or backlash. This is proven in her later life in terms of the way she brought up her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. She didn't feel the need to obey and mimic the traditional way of life for royals. She marched to the beat of her own drum, princess or not and we love it.
Being a member of the royal family, it is a sure thing that eyes are always on you. How annoying right? Diana did manage to keep her own little secrets from the public as well as fess up to anything she was called out on.

1 She Struggled With Depression And Bulimia
Diana held many personal issues throughout her whole life and they seemed to intensify as she got married. She remembers that her insecurities started right around when she got engaged. Diana said, "My husband put his hand on my waistline and said, 'Oh, a bit chubby here, aren't we?' That triggered something off in me." Diana was scrutinized for being chubby when she first started to be in the spotlight. She would turn to food for comfort because of all the judgement she was receiving both inside and outside her home towards her appearance. The news of Diana's bulimia became public in the 1990's and triggered a huge affect through the world. Bulimia cases began to skyrocket once the news broke of the princess' problem. It is unclear whether Diana was influencing others to replicate the disease or her courage of public admission caused others to report their secret disease as well. Either way, this news caused many to receive treatment for the illness and was later dubbed "The Diana Effect". Diana admitted that her bulimia was a symptom of her depression and the emptiness that she already was feeling. For her brutal honesty, even considering personal issues, Diana was able to help the people. Actions like these continue to make her the beloved people's princess.
