The famous and beloved Princess Diana had a $55 million net worth before her tragic death 14 years ago in 1997. In addition to her net worth, she was famous all over the world both for her marriage to Prince Charles and her humanitarian work. Born Diana Spencer of the Spencer family (a very important British aristocratic family, closely tied to the Royal family for generations) in 1961, a name for the young Spencer was not chosen until a week after her birth because her parents had wanted a male heir to carry on the Spencer name. The tension regarding Diana's birth eventually led to her parents' separation at age 7.

Diana wasn't exempt from feeling the pressure on that day, either, as evidenced by her accidental reversal of the order of her soon to be husband's first names during the wedding vows. Another source of controversy was the removal of a pledge to "obey" her husband from the vows.
