Princess Diana’s former employer fondly remembers her beloved qualities

25 years after her tragic death, Princess Diana’s legacy lives on as a loving, cherished figure.

But once she was just a shy 18-year-old working as a part-time nanny and kindergarten teacher while trying to be a teenager.

The woman she worked for shared that even then she flashed a caring nature fit for royalty. Her memories will warm your heart and also includes a surprising twist that is Vintage Diana.

The “princess of the people,” who is linked to over 100 charities, has kept her word when it came to helping others, often at great risk. From her stigma-busting work with AIDS patients to her dangerous work clearing landmines, she has led by example, putting her health and image at risk in the process.

Nonetheless, she would tell you that her blazing success was her unconditional love for her two sons, William and Harry. Despite all the different demands on her time, one thing was most important to her.

“I live for my sons. I would be lost without her,” she said in an interview.

That shaped their boys. 25 years after her tragic death, they honor their great mother. In a recent speech, Prince Harry said, “I want it to be a day when I can share my mother’s spirit with my family and children who I wish could have met.”

It turns out Diana’s caring personality was evident long before she wore a crown.

Back to 1980 when businesswoman Mary Robertson hired a shy teenager named Diana Frances Spencer to babysit her little boy Patrick. In a clip from the Diana docuseries, Robertson recalled her motherly touch.

“She was just wonderful with Patrick,” she said, adding, “That underlying warm, trusting, loving, caring personality was always there.”

However, Robertson would soon make a shocking discovery about Diana that would only serve to show what a special person she really was.

How Diana’s true identity was discovered

Though Diana may have been regal, she was always humble and down to earth. That, too, was a quality she clearly showed.

Little did Robertson know at the time, but her shy sitter was dating Prince Charles and was just weeks away from being crowned princess. In fact, she would never have known if she hadn’t accidentally been spotted under her couch.

Recalling the moment too Inner EditionShe said she found a deposit slip from Diana’s bank, which Robertson recognized as the bank of the aristocracy and royal family because of his work in finance.

And what did Diana say when her cover was blown? True to her humble nature, she brushed it off and asked to take Patrick for a walk.

Even after Diana’s marriage, the two stayed in touch over the years.

Though Diana’s loss still hurts, Robertson prefers to remember what made Princess Diana so special.

“One of her strongest qualities was that she was very tactile, she wanted to hug people, to touch them,” Robertson said.

Some will look back on Diana’s life as one we can never live – a pipe dream. However, if there’s one thing we can all take away from their lives, it’s that success isn’t about crowns, it’s about nurturing. What made her special was that she was human, and there was nothing that could be done about that.

If we could ask her, I’m sure she would say that the best way to honor her memory is to treat others like royalty.
