Today marks the 55th birthday of the iconic figure Princess Diana. Apart from being the People’s Princess, she was a fashion icon, and an active humanitarian and philanthropist. Princess Diana was the first royal to have contact with AIDS victims; Diana’s willingness to embrace those suffering from the disease helped dispel early misconceptions about AIDS. Her charity work with children was inspirational and has left a mark across the world, helping to make a difference.
It is wonderful to see William and Harry continuing her legacy to keep her memory alive. Happy Birthday to the People’s Princess.
Ronit Zilkha was fortunate enough as a young British fashion designer to dress the Princess over the years, and here are some of our favourites.
