Diana, Princess of Wales
Growing up in the English countryside, Diana didn't imagine she would be a princess one day. She was busy with dancing, swimming, and playing games, and trying to forget the sadness of her parents' divorce. When the Prince of Wales asked for her hand in marriage, she thought this was her chance to live happily ever after. It didn't turn out that way, but it was her chance to discover and use her special gifts.
