Lady Diana Net Worth: Lady Diana was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, and the Princess of Wales who had a net worth of $40 million at the time of her death. She was born Diana Spencer of the Spencer family (a very important British aristocratic family closely tied to the Royal family for generations) in 1961 in Park House, Sandringham, Norfolk, England. Lady Diana had aristocratic bloodlines from birth. Her father was John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and her mother, the Honourable Frances Roche. She earned the title of Lady Diana in 1975 when her father assumed the title of Earl Spencer. Lady Diana studied in Switzerland at the Institut Alpin Videmanette and moved to London to work as a nursery assistant. Her courtship with Prince Charles began in the 1980s during a polo event in the country and he proposed marriage in February 1981. Lady Diana left her job to move in to Clarence House before taking up residence at Buckingham Palace. She wed Charles at the age of 20 at St Paul's Cathedral on July 29, 1981. They honeymooned in various locations around the world, including Egypt, Tunisia, and Greece. Lady Diana announced her first pregnancy in November 1981; Prince William Arthur Philip Louis was born on June 21, 1982. Two years later, Lady Diana gave birth to her second son with Charles: Prince Henry Charles Albert Davis. As Princess of Wales, Diana became heavily involved in a variety of charities, most notably working with leprosy and AIDS organizations. Soon, she was involved with more than 100 different charities. By the early '90s, Diana's relationship Charles had started to suffer. She began dating Major James Hewitt, while Charles took up a relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles. Their divorce was finalized on August 28, 1996, with Diana earning a settlement of several million dollars. Following her divorce, Diana continued to live at Kensington Palace and began a romance with surgeon Hasnat Khan before dating Dodi Fayed. On August 31, 1997, just over a year after her divorce, Lady Diana was killed in a car accident in Paris' Pont de l'Alma tunnel. Fayed and the car's driver, Henri Paul, also died. A French investigation concluded that Paul was drunk at the time of the crash, while a British inquest found he was driving negligently with paparazzi in hot pursuit of the car. Lady Diana was laid to rest on September 6th, 1997. Elton John famously performed "Candle in the Wind" as a memorial to the late Princess. She has been well remembered since her death, with "TIME" Magazine naming her among the most important people of the 20th century. In a BBC poll, she ranked third among the 100 Greatest Britons in 2002, well ahead of the Queen.
