Kate Middleton vs. Princess Diana: Who's your fave fashionista?
The original “People’s Princess” would be 50 years old today, July 1, and seeing as Prince William just said “I do,” Celebuzz looks back at Princess Diana‘s lavish wedding to Prince Charles, and her life in the spotlight. 

The publication High 50 asked those close to Diana what they imagined she would be like at 50. Her couturier and confidant Bruce Oldfield is confident she would still be making a difference.

He told High 50

“I don’t think she would have turned into one of those ladies who lunch or who are on the boards of endless charities. There was no self-aggrandisement behind her choices. She took things on where she could make a difference. [...] I doubt she would have stayed in the UK. I could see her in the United States, but not Europe — for a start she didn’t speak any languages. But New York, yes, I could see her walking down Fifth Avenue and being allowed to get on with it.”

Prince William and his new bride Kate Middleton will be in North America during his late mother’s birthday. They arrived in Canada yesterday, June 30.
