Quokka selfies on Diana’s niece Lady Kitty Spencer’s Perth bucket list A laze on one of WA’s best-loved beaches, a quokka selfie and a cuddle with the local fauna are on Lady Kitty Spencer’s bucket list during her whistle-stop tour of Perth. The niece of the late Princess Diana is in Perth as the guest of honour at tomorrow’s Bentley Polo in the Valley at Duncraig Stud, marking her second trip to Australia after a month-long stay in 2015. While she is only in town for a few days, Lady Kitty is wasting no time ticking off her Perth “to-do list”. “I am going to Rottnest Island to get a quokka selfie and I am going to visit the koalas because I hear you can hold them here,” the charity patron and fashion masters graduate said. “I want to do Cottesloe Beach and then there’s a long list of
Princess Diana's generous spirit is being kept alive by The Diana Award's National Kindness Day on Friday 31 March. The charity is encouraging people from across the UK to do something kind for someone else to celebrate Princess Diana's values and commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death.

Examples include receiving a compliment from a stranger, being provided with directions when they have been lost and even having someone offering to pay for their food or drink.

Kensington Palace opens an exhibition chronicling the fashions of the late Princess Diana. The show, which is titled "Diana: Her Fashion Story," will run throughout 2017. But as easy as it is to be spirited away but the clothing itself, KP is also an intrinsic part of Diana's larger story. Diana lived in Kensington Palace throughout her marriage, and even after her divorce from Prince Charles. Her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, grew up at the palace, and still officially call it home. While Anmer Hall is where Prince William and Kate Middleton primarily reside, they will switching their home-base to KP later this year. Somewhat similarly, it's easy to overlook Kensington Palace's role as an exhibition space. But KP will also host a show on three more British princesses this y...

Princess Diana was—and still is—loved by millions of people all over the world. She was not only seen as Prince Charles' wife, but also as the people's princess. She married into the royal family in 1981, and since her tragic death in 1997, has been remembered as a woman of grace, style, and empathy.

Everything from similar style choices to the way they exude love towards all, especially children, has both brought about a new generation of those who adore Princess Diana and placed the events of her life on somewhat of a pedestal.
