Watch: How Princess Diana paved the way for Kate, Meghan and more royal women

Princess Diana will forever be remembered for her tireless royal work giving a voice to those in need, from refugees to children; the intimate way she engaged with fans, often bending down to give a hug; and her devotion to her children, who she vowed to raise in the most normal way possible.
