Princess Diana's niece Lady Amelia Spencer has revealed in a new interview her most lasting memory of her late aunt. Diana's tragic accident happened when Amelia was just five years old but but the Princess' legacy lives on in her life even now.
Lady Amelia Spencer: "I remember a beautiful and lasting memory"
Lady Amelia, who recently got engaged to her fiancé Greg Mallett in South Africa, has now shared some of her memories from Diana's final visit to South Africa. "Sadly I was only five years old when she passed away but I know she touched a lot of people's hearts and lives," she tells HELLO!.
"The last time I saw her was when she came to live with us in Cape Town for a few months and I remember a beautiful and lasting memory from that time. We were all running and playing on Noordhoek Beach, a beautiful beach in Cape Town."
"We had such a great day there and I really enjoyed the time she spent with us. I'm lucky that that memory stands out for me. It was the last time I saw her but she definitely lives on in all of us." Amelia actually has quite the resemblance to the late Princess and knows how much Diana meant to a lot of people.
"I feel that I have quite a compassionate nature and I hope that's something I inherited from her. Diana was an incredible icon and I know she touched a lot of people's hearts and lives."
28-year-old Lady Amelia is the child of Charles Spencer, 9th Earl of Spencer, and former model Victoria Aitken, née Lockwood, and sounds incredibly happy after getting engaged: "The day Greg proposed was the most romantic day of my life. He has been my best friend for 11 years and everything about him makes me feel like the luckiest person in the world."
We certainly wish the happy couple all the best for the future. Find some more news on the royals and the royal family right HERE!
