Helen Plum Library Presents: The Life and Death of Princess Diana
It’s been 20 years since the tragic Paris car crash that resulted in the shocking death of Princess Diana. Diana was constantly in the spotlight after her wedding to Prince Charles. In her early years as Princess, she was overwhelmed by her royal duties and the intense media coverage of nearly every aspect of her life. But later, after the birth of her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, she served as a strong supporter of many charities and worked to help the homeless, people living with HIV and AIDS and children in need. Her fairy tale wedding to the Prince did not lead to a happily-ever-after marriage and they finalized their divorce in 1996. After her divorce, Diana did not carry the title of Her Royal Highness, however, she was eulogized as a royal.

Historian Jim Gibbons will share many little known details about the “People’s Princess” on Sunday, September 24 at 2pm in the Helen Plum Library Auditorium.
