Diana’s Death Anniversary – level 2

Diana’s Death Anniversary – level 2

07-09-2016 15:00

Last Wednesday, it was Princess Diana’s 19-year death anniversary. This article looks back at her life.

In 1981, Prince Charles and she were engaged, and they got married at St Paul’s Cathedral. In 1982, Prince William, their first child, was born. Prince Harry was born two years later.

They did not live happily ever after, however. In 1992, Charles and Diana told people that they were separating, and in 1993 Diana resigned from her public duties.

However, she continued her charity work. She visited the Red Cross in Zimbabwe, and in 1997, she went to Angola. There she showed the world the problem of landmines in Africa.

On August 31st that same year, the People’s Princess, Diana and her boyfriend died in a car crash in Paris. On September 6th, people brought her body back to the UK and held a funeral for her.

Difficult words: anniversary (the day on which something important happened), separate (stop living together as a couple), resign (leave a job; stop doing something), public duties (the official things that the royal family must do).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
