Diana, Princess of Wales, (Diana Frances Spencer, July 1, 1961-August 31, 1997) was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales. She was born in Norfolk, England to an aristocratic family with links to the Royal Family. She did not shine as a student, but excelled in swimming, diving, music and ballet. When she met her future husband, Diana was sharing an apartment with 3 flat mates in London while working as an assistant in a nursery school. A public figure from the announcement of her engagement to Prince Charles, Diana remained the focus of near-constant media focus for the rest of her life.
In 1981, "Lady Di" married Prince Charles. She was 20 years old and he was 33. Their royal wedding was televised and watched by over 1 billion people worldwide. They had two sons, Princes William and Henry (Harry), second and third in line to the British Throne. However in the mid 1980's, strains appeared in the marriage, and after much publicity the marriage broke up leading to a divorce in 1992.
With her natural sympathy and "oneness" with patients, Diana became involved with various charities, most notably victims of aids and land mines. Her hands-on approach to charity work gave the impression of a new type of Royal, who was no longer so remote.
Diana died at the age of 36 on August 31st, 1997, in a car crash involving Dodi Al-Fayed. The long awaited Coroner’s Inquest reported in April 2008 that Diana had been unlawfully killed by her driver and the following paparazzi. The death of Diana had a profound impact on the British public and around the world. Despite the pervasive press intrusions into her private life, Diana remained very popular because people could identify with her. Her loss led to a spontaneous and unprecedented outpouring of grief and sympathy, for a person people had taken into their hearts, the "People's Princess." Her final resting place was her family home of Althorp.
Angelina Jolie is best known for her model looks, movies and off-screen life. However, there is much more to her than meets the eye. She's an international ambassador and human rights campaigner, who remains dedicated to various charities.
Born in Los Angeles, Jolie went to Beverly Hills High School and then New York University. Her first starring role was in the 1995 film Hackers. Jolie then played the title role in Gia, a film based on the true story of a model who died from AIDS. Then came her kick-butt action roles as Lara Croft. But underneath all the glitz and glam, Jolie has a more serious life-changing role. She has been a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commision for Refugees since 2001. As well as donating to charity, Jolie gives up her time too. Instead of attending the premiere of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, she visited earthquake-hit northern Pakistan.
Jolie has a child with Brad Pitt and has also adopted children from Cambodia and from Ethiopia.
