Princess Diana

The Princess is remembered by everyone she met for her warmth and genuine interest in their situation and difficulties. She threw herself into her charity work in a very personal way, spending countless hours listening to the individual stories and problems of the people she visited. She had the ability to make everybody feel special, in particular vulnerable young people who were touched by her warmth and affection. In 1984, she became President of Barnardo's, a British charity which helps the most vulnerable children and young people transform their lives and fulfil their potential.She also had a natural empathy with people who were close to death or those who had lost a loved one - something which was clear through her visits to hospitals and hospices in the UK and abroad.

The Princess's first tour with Prince Charles was a 3-day visit to Wales in October 1981. During a tour of Harlem Hospital Center, she made a profound impact on the public by spontaneously hugging a child with AIDS. From the mid-1980s, the Princess of Wales became increasingly associated with numerous charities. As Princess of Wales, she was expected to make regular public appearances at hospitals, schools and other facilities, in the 20th century model of royal patronage. She did a lot of charity works, visiting terminally ill people over the world, leading campaigns for animal protection, AIDS awareness and against the use of inhumane weapons.
