Engaged to a Prince
Diana was thrust into the public spotlight when she became engaged to Charles, Prince of Wales on February 6, 1981. The pair met through Diana’s sister Sarah, whom Charles had previously dated. They are photographed here outside of Buckingham Palace after announcing their engagement. Charles proposed with a 12-carat sapphire surrounded by diamonds. The ring would later be used by the couple’s son, Prince William, to propose to Kate Middleton. —XFINITY News Staff (Ron Bell/AP Photo)
