On #ThisDayinHistory Diana our ‘ Princess of Wales’ died 20 years ago at 36, in a car crash in Paris for braving the paparazzi, in her early life she was known for being the shy and quiet one in her family #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Aug.30: As TIME described her privileged upbringing in an April 20, 1981, cover package published shortly after the then-19-year-old Diana became engaged to the Prince of Wales Charles, the house that the Spencer family rented from the Crown had the only heated pool in the area — and that pool was more than a symbol of wealth #AceHistoryDesk reports

Because Park House was part of the royal estate at Sandringham, the neighbors who came by to take advantage of the pool included the Windsor children…..“Diana and Charles may have met a few times when she was a child and he already a young man, but everyone is fuzzy on the details,” the story noted…… That pool was not the only indicator of her privilege, the story continued:… Diana attended West Heath, a boarding school in Kent, where she excelled in sports and recorded a middling result on standard exams known as O Levels…….. At 16, she spent twelve weeks at a Swiss finishing school, primarily to learn to ski but also to brush up on French, cooking, sewing and typing…… Nothing much here for a résumé, but perfectly fine, thanks, for the sort of genteel, pass-the-time employment that came Diana’s way: governess, cook, nanny, kindergarten teacher…… But, despite having all the makings of a happy childhood, that period could also be a solitary one for the young Diana….. She had a strong connection with animals, doting on her Shetland pony and serving as head of “Pets’ Corners” at her boarding school Riddlesworth Hall, but often spent time without many people around…Her parents’ marriage having fallen apart before she was 10, the family home Althorp House could be “a lonely place” for Diana, Tina Brown, the former editor of The New Yorker and The Daily Beast, writes in the forward of the new book Remembering Diana: A Life in Photographs.A frequent erroneous press assumption,” she writes, “was that her distinguished aristocratic background meant familiarity with a grand, high-society world…… In fact, Diana’s childhood was limited in its circle and almost feral in its neglect….. She spent most of her free time with the servants below stairs (one reason, perhaps, she could communicate so well with ordinary people).” #AceHistoryNews reports are provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News

Snippets of History: On #ThisDayinHistory 1959, the Mini Cooper is launched. It was at a price tag of less than $800 and the diminutive Mini went on to become one of the best-selling British cars in history #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Aug.26: The story behind the Mini began in August 1956, when President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal in response to the American and British decision to withdraw funding for a new dam’s construction due to Egypt’s Communist ties #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/6905 This picture shows what might be one of the oldest models.

The international crisis that followed led to fuel shortages and gasoline rationing across Europe. Sir Leonard Lord, head of BMC wanted to produce a British alternative to the tiny, fuel-efficient German cars that were cornering the market after the Suez Crisis. Mini development began in 1957 and took place under a veil of secrecy, and after about two and a half years–a relatively short design period–the new car was ready for the approval of Lord, who immediately signed off on its production. By the time production was halted in 2000, 5.3 million Minis had been produced. A high-performance version of the Mini engineered by the race car builder John Cooper had first been released in 1961; known as the Mini Cooper, it became one of the favorites of Mini enthusiasts worldwide #AceHistoryNews
