Lady Diana Frances Spencer, (July 1, 1961–August 31, 1997) was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales. From her marriage in 1981 to her divorce in 1996 she was called “Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales”. After her divorce from the Prince of Wales in 1996, Diana ceased to be the Princess of Wales and also lost the resulting Royal Highness style.
After her divorce, officially, she was called Diana, Princess of Wales.
Diana was often called Princess Diana by the media and the public, but she did not possess such a title and was not personally a princess, a point Diana herself made to people who referred to her as such. Contrary to belief, being Princess of Wales does not make one a princess in one’s own right. It merely indicates that one was married to a Prince of Wales.
An iconic presence on the world stage, Diana, Princess of Wales was noted for her pioneering charity work. Yet her philanthropic endeavours were sometimes overshadowed by her difficult marriage to Prince Charles. In the 1990s she made many public revelations about the difficult marriage – her affairs and Prince Charles’ affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles. diana princess of wales

During her lifetime, she was often referred to as the most photographed person in the world.
