Princess Diana’s royal career was cut tragically short, yet in her brief life she successfully built a reputation as an innovative, empathetic and highly-effective humanitarian and diplomat. In doing so she also discovered the determination – even defiance – needed to overcome personal unhappiness and a sceptical media, to earn her place as an enduring example of compassion, strength and grace.
This illustrated talk recalls the princess’s worldwide work on five continents, with many revealing and entertaining personal anecdotes by the man who was her closest adviser and confidant.
