Princess Diana’s niece Kitty Spencer has grown up – here’s what she looks like today

Princess Diana was both famous and well-loved by the British public in general.

When she married Prince Charles, she became an icon of her time, enjoying the adulation of a nation who were well behind her strong humanitarian values. She worked tirelessly with charities to improve the lives of others, becoming a beacon of compassion within the royal family.

In addition, she spearheaded the march towards breaking the stigma against such diseases as AIDS and HIV. All in all, she was a princess of the people.

But on top of that, she was also a mom.

Princess Diana spent as much time as possible around her two boys, Prince William and Prince Harry. Even today, decades on from her death, the princes often talk in interviews about how much Diana continues to inspire them in life.

Of course, they’re not the only ones who talk fondly of Lady Di. Lady Kitty Spencer was just six-years-old when Princess Diana, her auntie, died in a car crash in 1997.

Kitty is the eldest of the siblings in her family. Her father, Earl Charles Spencer, is the younger brother of Princess Diana, who of course passed away after a car accident in Paris in 1997.

And Kitty, who will turn 30 this year, is thus the cousin to Prince Harry. According to Hello Magazine, she’s on the invited list for the big wedding this weekend.

Kitty was born in Great Britain, but moved to South Africa in 1995. The family escaped from the British tabloid press so that they could live life in peace, away from the cameras.

Now though, Kitty is embracing the limelight. She currently works as a model!

It was back in 2007 that she made her first significant public appearance, while accompanying William and Harry at a memorial ceremony in Princess Diana’s honour.

In 2011, she made an appearance as a guest at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Just as with Princess Diana, Lady Kitty has worked with several charities and is an ambassador for an organization that helps homeless youths.

She was just six when Diana was killed, but still remembers her aunt.

“I was so young when she died. There are only a few memories, but special and happy memories, and I’m so lucky to have those,” she said in the past, as per the Daily Mail.

Feel free to share this story to honour Kitty’s aunt Diana and her legacy. We won’t forget!
