Princess Diana has taken over as president of London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. She was to make her debut in the post Sunday at a charity screening of the film “City Lights,” marking the 100th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin’s birth. The 27-year-old princess succeeds Sir John Gielgud, who retired as head of the prestigious academy Friday on his 85th birthday.
