Although many years have passed since the death of the much remembered Princess Diana, her legacy, and the interest about her life, still remains with the passing of time.
Diana was always closely watched, followed by millions of people around the world, many people inquire day by day curiosities about her life but some probably do not know her real last name, which she stopped using when she married Prince Charles in 1981.
It should be noted that British royals do not usually use surnames, which generates some confusion and many ask the same question: What was Princess Diana’s maiden name?
Although there are many people who can say they know all about Princess Diana and the royal family, there are also people who don’t know that detail about the ‘People’s Princess’.
What was Princess Diana’s maiden name?
William and Harry‘s mother was known as Diana Frances Spencer. After marrying Prince Charles, her maiden name disappeared, since the members of royalty, after marriage use the name of the royal house to which they belong.
In her case she became Diana, Princess of Wales, also known as “Her Royal Highness”.
It should be noted that even after the divorce of Charles and Diana, she was still called Princess of Wales and not Diana Spencer.
