DIANA, PRINCESS OF Wales would have been a grandmother at 52, if she were alive today.
Diana, born 1st July 1961, would have made a perfect picture with her first grandson Prince George, born 22nd July 2013 to her first-born Prince William and wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
Come 29th July 2013 would have marked her 32nd wedding anniversary to Prince Charles had they not divorced on 28th August 1996 (after four years of separation).
She died in a tragic car accident on 31st Aug 1997 in Paris, at the age of 36.
As the world rejoice the birth of a prince who is third in line to the British throne, I also reflect on the princess who made that possible.
I used to be an ardent admirer of Princess Diana, and had a small collection of books, magazines, postcards and newspaper cuttings on her.
