This paper explains that Princess Diana was very much a feminist in that she set out to be her own person, acknowledged her own weaknesses and those of society's and worked to overcome them both, dared to be an individual in spite of a societal structure that wanted her to be conformist and a stereotype, and understood that others weren't yet afforded the opportunities that she was and worked to overcome those imbalances in society. The author points out that Princess Diana was stereotypically feminine during the early time of her life when she dropped out from school at age 16, but had a particular talent for music as an accomplished pianist, dancing, and domestic science at school. The paper states that, unlike a typical wife in a conservative country, Diana was not an object who could be easily manipulated; failing to receive love from her husband, she openly admitted to committing adultery herself.

From the Paper:

"In the traditional Kingdom of Great Britain, Lady Diana was a Princess through marriage to the future king Prince Charles. She gained her glamorous prefix, Her Royal Highness, but she had no real power in hand. Even though she would possibly become the Queen of the Wales when her husband was succeeded to the throne as King, she would not have the power to rule. But it did not stop her from making a change in the world. Princess Diana actively participated in numerous kinds of charity work throughout the world. "During her marriage, the Princess was president or patron of over 100 charities. The Princess did much to publicize work on behalf of homeless and also disabled people, children and people with HIV/Aids.""
