Royal rebel: the legacy of Diana
http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2011/mar/30/diana-princess-wales-royal-rebel-legacy
Quote
Monica Ali's new novel was inspired by Diana. Here she pays tribute to a 'fascinating, flawed' woman who stood up to the monarchy's hypocrisy and changed Britain forever
Quote
No one could attract attention to an issue like Diana. A child of her time, she understood the importance of a well-timed (and well-documented) gesture, and this, combined with her natural impulse to reach out to the most marginalised in society, led to one of her most indelible acts. In April 1987, when ignorance about HIV and Aids was still rife, Diana shook hands with an HIV-positive patient. The photograph made front-page news around the world.


Princess Diana had her faults made her mistakes  Shocked as all humans do.  But the one thing I will always remember her for is the genuine Love she had for the People, she didn't have to fake what she felt for the public. IMO

Totally agree.  She was genuine.  Yes, she made mistakes, but look what she was up against!

Thanks for the topic. She was an inspiration for me. She even inspired me to do a whole year long a good deed everyday. Small gestures for others and the enviroment. I thought if she could do so much, I could too but on a smaller scale.

Not sure where to put this, (ignore the stupid joke on top)
Princess Diana’s funeral was watched by more people than her marriage (and her sons marriage) was.

When she died she was more popular.. she put everyone fell that knew her.. and her tragedy make people fascinated with her, and she helped a lot of people, was beautifull and elegant in her last years!!! So that's why that happened...

In life nothing happens by accident. we must remember that there are no good that lasts forever. And evil that never ends. God works in mysterious ways. So I just have to accept what happens because we do not know what we gain by things go this way. Not always what initially seems an award is the. This happens when we fall in love, when we found out a new job when a friend disappears or when someone leaves for ever.

               After her wedding she became the most photographed woman in the world... people all over the world knew about her, and loved her.

                              The world was in shock when she was killed.

                                           Such a loss for her sons, her loved ones and  her charities.. she raised Millions.

It's truly staggering when you think about it, having hundreds of millions of people mourning the loss of one person.

  2.5 Billion people watched her funeral .. at that time .. it was half the world's population.

  750 Million watched her wedding.

  Which proves how popular she was the world over, as time went by.


 Charles' blessing to Camilla was watched by 20 million world wide..  wopedo

Euhm no honey
It's correct: she was Charles' wife from '81 till '96
The dates do not refer to her birth and death year but her years of being 'Princess of Wales'

I miss her too. I wonder what she would make of her eldest son marrying a woman like Kate and Harry behaving like a drunken lout?

I dont believe no one in this forum would comment this part of text:
 nervous nervous nervous
She lives on through her two boys, who have turned out very well, and by the fact that the monarchy was forced to face modern times
 nervous nervous nervous

her legacy sons is a spin I never bought only serves for be a facade to William & Harry & their behavior.
