As we remember the late Princess of Wales on her 53rd birthday today, we bring to you the top 7 quotes by the “people’s princess”. Take a look!

1. I’d like to be a queen in people’s hearts but I don’t see myself being Queen of this country.

2. Call me Diana, not Princess Diana.

3. I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.

4. I don’t want expensive gifts; I don’t want to be bought. I have everything I want. I just want someone to be there for me, to make me feel safe and secure.

5. People think that at the end of the day a man is the only answer. Actually, a fulfilling job is better for me.

6. You can’t comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable.

7. Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life – a kind of destiny. Whoever is in distress can call on me. I will come running wherever they are.
