Diana, Princess of Wales may have passed away over 26 years ago, but her timeless beauty still lives on. From her iconic dress sense to her classic makeup and hair looks, she is still very much in our hearts. The former wife of Prince Charles was certainly ahead of her time - sporting blue eyeliner before it was cool, vampy black kohl, slicked-back hair and even red nail polish back in the day. But what was her favourite perfume?
