On Friday, the 21st anniversary of Diana’s death, Rosa Monckton took to Twitter to share a candid picture of her dear friend.
Monckton was reportedly introduced to Diana by a mutual friend. She loved the princess, even naming her the godmother of her daughter, Domenica, who was born with Down Syndrome, according to People.
“She said, ‘You just have to believe in her,’” Monckton recalled Diana telling her after Domenica’s birth in 1995, according to People. “She said, ‘Believe in her, love her and I’ll be there every step of the way.’ She already had that vision of what Domenica could become, which I simply couldn’t see.”
“[Diana] was a huge encouragement,” Monckton added. “She came with me to appointments. She was very much by my side.”
“Domenica was Princess Diana’s last godchild, and Rosa passionately promotes the late Princess’s belief that ‘everybody needs to be valued and everyone has the potential to give something back,'” the charity states on its website.
