Diana, Princess of Wales, became famous when she
decided to marry Prince Charles. She became the
most photographed person in the world. Everywhere
she went, there were photographers taking pictures of
her and people were very interested in her clothes,
where she went on holiday and who she was with.
They were also interested in the problems between her
and her husband. When they divorced she remained
very popular. In addition to her image as a 'star',
Princess Diana used her influence to attract attention to
some charities. She was very sympathetic to all people
who were ill and unhappy and dedicated time to
helping them and drawing public attention to their
problems. She used to visit homeless people regularly
and did a lot of work for the National AIDS Trust; she
visited people suffering from AIDS.
