    Emm, in what way "Princess Diana" has influenced Britain?
    She gave the most publicity to the royal family and her son's wedding was one of the most talked about events in recent times. The way the royals treated her exposed what they really are to the public, but apparently people have short memories and have returned to their usual arse-licking (see Jubilee celebrations).

    Rep:
    The Pankhursts?

    Rep:
    You need some objective criteria to judge them against. Some made massive differences to different fields such as marie curie who was the first person to be awarded two nobel prizes.

    Rep:
    The Virgin Mary

    Rep:
    Queen Victoria ?

    Rep:
    hannah harper

    Rep:
    Kate Bush

    Rep:
    Margaret Thatcher has had arguably the biggest effect on Britain, whether good or bad is down to personal opinion.

    Rep:
    Margaret Beaufort , the mother of Henry VII

    She was extremely influential in the Wars of the roses, she brought about the marriage of her son to Elizabeth of York and so uniting the two warring houses and continued to have influence her over her son and grandson when they ruled. She was also briefly regent for Henry VIII in 1509.

    Well I would.
