Princess of Wales Diana
I do things differently, because I don't go by a rule book, because I lead from the heart, not the head, and albeit that's got me into trouble in my work, I understand that.
Diana quotes
I'd like to be a queen of people's hearts, in people's hearts, but I don't see myself being Queen of this country. I don't think many people will want me to be Queen.
Diana
She won't go quietly, that's the problem. I'll fight to the end, because I believe that I have a role to fulfill, and I've got two children to bring up.




After dinner at a friends house, Diana said, 'Do you have a pair of Marigolds?' I'll do the washing up. The host convinced her there was no need!
Diana Princess of Wales
In the aftermath of her untimely death, which has thrown up a smog of irrelevant questions, -- like, did the media do it? -- we will soon be facing the only essential one: Will she be, posthumously, as much a destabilizer of the House of Windsor as she was when she was living?
I was always told by my family that I was the thick one. That I was stupid and my brother was the clever one. And I was always so conscious of that. I used to go to the head mistress crying saying I wish I wasn't so stupid.
Princess of Wales Diana
We clicked in an intangible way' probably because of our upbringing.
The worst illness of our time is that so many people have to suffer from not ever being loved.
Diana
Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.
Diana Princess of Wales
Anywhere I see suffering, that is where I want to be, doing what I can.
Princess of Wales Diana
Only in storybooks do you get to dance with a princess until midnight. But it happened to me.




Everyone needs to be valued. Everyone has the potential to give something back.
Princess of Wales Diana
When I started my public life, twelve years ago, I understood the media might be interested in what I did. I realized then their attention would inevitably focus on both our private and public lives. But I was not aware of how overwhelming that attention would become. Nor the extent to which it would affect both my public duties and my personal life, in a manner, that's been hard to bear. At the end of this year, when I've completed my diary of official engagements, I will be reducing the extent of the public life I've lead so far.
