On April 27, 1993, about four years prior to her death, Princess Diana delivered a powerful speech on eating disorders. The popular royal made the case for more education and empathy for those who suffered from the disease.

“Eating disorders, whether it be anorexia or bulimia, show how an individual can turn the nourishment of the body into a painful attack on themselves, and they have, at their core, a far deeper problem than mere vanity,” Diana said.
