August 31st, 2018 marks 21 years since the tragic passing of Princess Diana.

The Princess of Wales was the embodiment of grace and kindness.

She'll forever be celebrated for her unwavering love for her two sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

Last year, the boys spoke of what Diana was like as a mother.

"She was our mum, she still is our mum you know and of course as a son I would say she is the best mum in the world," Harry confessed.

William confessed she'd have been a wonderful grandmother, joking, "She'd love the children to bits, but she be an absolute nightmare!"

So much more than a fashion icon, the 36-year-old was incredibly selfless and caring – something that shone through in her inspiring humanitarian work.

She was a woman who embraced her own ideal of what it meant to live life to its fullest, passing those values along to her sons, and in turn, her legacy burns bright in [her great-grandchildren] Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

In her short 36 years, the mother-of-two lived by her beliefs, focusing on giving back and spreading her positive energy.

As the People's Princess, she had the remarkable ability to inspire all the while helping others.

"Everyone needs to be valued. Everyone has the potential to give something back if only they had the chance," she once famously mused.
