With a sense of humor that was both soft and self-deprecating, part of what made her "the people's princess" was her easy wit. Diana defied people's expectations of what a princess should do or say by leading the life she wanted and saying exactly what was on her mind -- sometimes even to the chagrin of the royal family.

In fact, speaking of his mother's sense of humor in their HBO documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and LegacyPrince Harry says Diana's motto was, "You can be as naughty as you want, but just don't get caught."

A comedic sensibility isn't something that's typically attributed to princesses, but we aren't talking about just any princess. We're talking about a woman who was -- and is still -- beloved by millions.
