Artist Reimagines What It Would Be Like if Princess Diana Was Still Alive Today and a Part of the Royal Family

She may be gone, but in the minds of those who loved her, she is immortal. And this artist captures that world in which she lives on with us.


More than two decades have passed since the People's Princess left us but she is still loved and remembered for the compassionate and kind woman she was. To us, she was a princess but Lady Diana was more than that to others. She was a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a wife.

Though a part of the British Royal family, she did the best she could to follow her heart and make sure that her sons were raised in a way that she wanted - with courage in their blood, kindness in their soul and love in their eyes. Sadly enough, she never got the chance to see them grow up into the men they are today. And many wonder how she would have been like as a mother-in-law and a grandmother to all the royal babies running around.


Fortunately, someone took up the effort to picture what she would have been like had she lived to see her sons get married and have children of their own. Artist Autumn Ying reimagined the late Princess of Wales in the various stages of life that she never got to experience. It is these art pieces that honor her and allow her to live on in the minds of those who loved her.


After all, to her sons, she was their Northern Star. Prince Harry remembers her as "the best mum in the world" and even said, "She was one of the naughtiest parents… She smothered us with love, that’s for sure," according to Good Housekeeping. "She was very informal and really enjoyed the laughter and the fun," said Prince William.


If she had not been in that fatal accident in Paris all those years ago, she would have been around to watch her sons turn into fine young men and have families of their own. And she would have been such a big part of their lives.

1. She was close to late Prince Philip, her father-in-law



2. Every day would've been Mother's Day with her around


3. If she were alive, she would've held the family together



4. Her boys, her pride


5. Holidays with Granny Diana would've been so much fun!



6. She would have been a hands-on grandma, taking care of her grandkids just as she took care of her sons



7. Like a lioness protecting her cubs, she protected her sons, and she would have continued to do so had been alive to raise her grandkids



"A mother's arms are more comforting than anyone else's." - Princess Diana

8. She sure would've given her daughters-in-law some tough competition in the fashion department!


9. She may have left the world too early, but there is so much of her that lives on in her sons


10. Of all the roles she played in her short life, being a mother is what she was most proud of


11. She was a champion of women's rights and is a fine example of what women can achieve


12. Her sweet innocence and ethereal looks won everyone over


13. “Hugs can do great amounts of good – especially for children," and a big hugger she was


14. The lives she has touched and the love she has spread will always keep her memory alive
