Before was a beautiful princess married to the man sixth in line to the British royal throne, she was a beautiful actress. And not just any beautiful actress, she was once so eager to become a public figure she attended countless red carpet premieres, galas and gifting lounges, and was once photographed with an over-the-counter brand of flu medication.
