Princess Diana and the Causes Close to Her Heart

The people's Princess, who would have been 54 today, championed many causes – and touched countless lives


A month after the Jan. 17, 1995, earthquake that devastated Kobe, Japan, the Princess returned to the country, flying into Tokyo and greeting children at the National Children's Hospital. "I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give," Diana once said of her charitable missions. "I'm very happy to do that and I want to do that."
