Diana's wedding to the Prince of Wales took place at St Paul's Cathedral on 29 July 1981 and reached a global television audience of over 750 million people.During her marriage, Diana was Princess of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, and Countess of Chester.Prince Charles subsequently courted Diana in London.The Prince proposed on 6 February 1981, and Lady Diana accepted, but their engagement was kept secret for the next few weeks.Diana was born into the Spencer family, a family of British nobility with royal ancestry and was the youngest daughter of John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and Frances Roche.She grew up in Park House, situated on the Sandringham estate, and was educated in England and Switzerland.
The relationship progressed when he invited her aboard the royal yacht Britannia for a sailing weekend to Cowes.
She took a series of low-paying jobs; she worked as a dance instructor for youth until a skiing accident caused her to miss three months of work.
She then found employment as a playgroup pre-school assistant, did some cleaning work for her sister Sarah and several of her friends, and acted as a hostess at parties.
The experience was described as "humiliating" by Diana's younger brother, Charles: "It was a dreadful time for my parents and probably the root of their divorce because I don't think they ever got over it." The Spencers leased the house from its owner, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Royal Family frequently holidayed at the neighbouring Sandringham House, and Diana played with Prince Andrew and Prince Edward as a child.
