Princess Diana's Will Is Released, Along With What She Left The Princes

Rex USA
Princess Diana was only 36 years old the on the night of her fatal car crash, just a year after her much-publicized divorce from Prince Charles. Her sons, Princes William and Harry, were only 15 and 12 at the time of her death. And, while Diana has lived on through her children and devoted admirers across the world, it's never been crystal clear what she left the boys — until now, that is.

Probate Search is a British website that allows users to search for the wills of the country's most famous citizens — Winston Churchill, George Orwell, and Princess Diana's included. In exchange for a small fee, anyone with Internet access can download these documents and discover the details of what was left to whom and any private notes the departed may have included.

As it turns out, Princess Diana bequeathed approximately $30 million, as well as her iconic wedding dress, to her sons. She also included instructions that her mother, Frances Shand Kydd, should be consulted about the boys' education. The late royal also left $80,000 to her confidant and butler, Paul Burrell, tax-free. Her 17 godchildren received family heirlooms, including a clock and a painting. It's heartwarming to know that, in some ways, the legacy of the People's Princess lives on.
