All I could think of was dolma - maybe my brain thought it looked like a giant stuffed grape leaf.

Everybody in America, perhaps, but those of us in the Commonwealth know that she was NEVER Princess Diana. Being married in to royalty, not born in to it, Princess comes after the name - so she was known as Lady Diana, Princess of Wales. If you want it before her name, she was Princess Charles, though the only one this is currently the commonly used format for is Princess Michael.
They're not a member of the Commonwealth, I know, but even the French know enough to refer to her as 'Lady Di' (pronounced Dee). It's for this reason, also, that we don't ever say Princess Catherine or Princess Meghan. Nor shall we ever. Given that this is a D quiz and people just need to write 'Diana', this can be fixed to Lady Diana. Accept Princess if Americans insist on typing it, but it's just about simple respect for her and the system.

What is Dante wearing? It really looks like a bra and cape combo. I guess a lot of medieval fashion was tragic, but this seems even worse than my high school prom.

If I'm a paranoid conspiratard, why can't I type Deep State for every answer? The quiz maker is part of the Deep State and doesn't want us answering his quizzes honestly.
