‘The People’s Princes’

Diana, Princess of Wales, would have been50 years old on July 1. Diana’s untimely death at the age of 36 in a 1997 car crash sent the world into mourning, but the bright spirit of ‘the people’s princess‘ lives on. Here are some facts about Diana:
Royal courtship. Prince Charles had known Diana for several years and had briefly dated her older sister Sarah. But Charles never considered Dna as a potential bride until one summer weekend in 1980, when the future princess watched the prince play polo. In the winter 0f1981, Diana accepted Charles‘ proposal of marriage.
Worldwide wedding‘ On July 29, 1981, 20-yearold Diana wed 32-year old Charles, with 3,500 guests in attendance, at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Two million spectators lined the route of Diana’s procession to the church, and 750 milion more people around the world watched the ceremony on TV.
Little princes The union of Diana and Cluarles produced two sons, Prince Wiliam in 1982 and Prince Harry it 1984. Despite their diiferences, the royal couple reportedly made a good parenting team and shared responsibility for the boys after divorcing in 1996.
Lasting legacy. Her openness may have roiled the royals, but Diana modemized the monarchy. She campaigned against the use of land mines, raised awareness of eating disorders and held the hands of AIDS patients, confronting the prejudices of the time.

“Anywhere I see suffering,
that is where I want to be,
doing what I can.”
—Diana, Princess of Wales

Buy Local, Eat Green

Summer is the perfect season for home-grown fruits and vegetables. Farmers’ markets abound, as do locally grown sections in chain supermarkets. Eating seasonal produce grown close to home saves the high costs of transportation, and products get to your table faster, meaning they’re fresher and more flavorful.
