Cerith Gardiner - published on 07/01/21

Although they were from different walks of life, their friendship blossomed.

Today on July 1, Princess Diana would have turned 60. Although she died at 36, she achieved many extraordinary things in her short life. One of these was forming a friendship with the now canonized saint, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who happened to die just five days after her friend.

So in recognition of these two unique women, and the work they achieved, click on the slideshow below to consider the essentials of forming a beautiful friendship.
