             The theme of Diana's life was......

Diana's theme of the story is that persistence pays off the reason I picked this theme is because she helped with all the charities. Diana also visited the sick people and she also spoke out against landmines. From Diana doing all that stuff she put a smile on peoples face and made the people very happy.

     Diana's words of advice and what she taught me........

  • "She was absolutely wonderful, the Americans loved her, she liked the Americans" (306).I picked this advice because she did not any like her own country she loved Everyone's country and this kind of means like love everything in life not just what is about you.
  • " The trip to Chicago to raise money for Brest cancer treatment was a great success"(306).I picked this advice because she was in all those charities and she helped people and that made them happy so helping people other than yourself will help them and will make them happier.

What I learned about Diana's life was that helping people when they needed the help was worth it.That having many chariots, visiting sick people about to die will make them happy because you care. I also learned that you don't have to marry a prince to act like a princess should because she acted like a princess before and after her marriage. The most important thing I learned was making other people happy will also make yourself happy.
