It was 20 years ago, on August 31, that Princess Diana died. Her tragic death shocked the world, but most devastated were (and are) her two sons. Prince William and Prince Harry have honored their mom in so many ways, and have carried on her legacy. And what a legacy it is -- here are some of the ways Princess Diana's life impacted us. 


Diana did so much in her 36 years. She redefined what it meant to be a princess, and also challenged norms even after her divorce. She encouraged a more modern way of thinking, with compassion and love. Her impact continues to inspire so many to this day -- a feat that shows no sign of slowing.
