It was exactly 15 years ago today when tragedy struck and took the life of a beautiful and iconic woman that will always be remembered as Princess Diana of Wales.
I was only 7 years old and even though I did not know the severity of the situation back then, I still remember where I was and who I was with when most of the World got word of her terrible car accident. My mom, my aunt and I were sitting at a restaurant enjoying our meal when all of a sudden it seemed as though everyone in the restaurant stopped speaking and turned their attention on the row of televisions behind the bar area. I heard many gasps and whispers and looked over at my mom to see tears welling up in her eyes.
“What’s wrong”? I asked her. She told me that a very important person might be dead and that was the only time I thought about Princess Diana…until 5th grade when I was assigned to do a project about her. I was forced to do tons of research on her life and ended up becoming very interested in her amazing journey and selfless personality.
Princess Diana was truly one of a kind and did so much god for this world. She had a true passion for helping others as well as for her two sons.
Today I want to remember her for the iconic role model that she was, so here are some mesmerizing photos of her during happy times in her life. You are truly missed and will never be forgotten.
Lovelies, do you remember when Princess Diana passed? How did her passing affect you or the people around you at that time?
