India Hicks Shares Princess Diana Memories and Launches Crabtree & Evelyn Floral Fragrance Collection
http://www.stylelist.com/2011/03/14/india-hicks-princess-diana-crabtree-and-evelyn-floral-fragrance-collection/
Quote
Creative partner India Hicks, whose family history is rich in the tapestry of royalty, spoke of her most cherished fragrance moments. The daughter of Lady Pamela Mountbatten, she is second cousin to Charles, Prince of Wales, and served as bridesmaid to Diana, Princess of Wales, at her legendary nuptials.

In fact, it was time spent with Princess Diana that gave Hicks her first real fragrance memory.

"I first met Diana at the age of 13. Diana always wore tea rose. I had never thought about the feminine aspect of fragrance until I met her," said Hicks.

Tea rose was such a signature scent for the late princess, that she even wore it the day the whole world was watching.

"I distinctly remember Diana's tea rose scent on the day of her wedding. Charles had asked her to carry a yellow bantam rose in her bouquet in memory of my grandfather," said Hicks of Lord Mountbatten, the last Viceroy of India. "I now have that rose as a paperweight I keep on my desk," added Hicks.

 lips @ LP: yes, I was wondering why it hadn't been posted - I'm usually a bit slow.  sigh

Mousie: no, I wouldn't bother - it's a fictional account, which got me in at first. Lots of authors write fiction about a theory, so as to avoid legal and other problems, I guess. And, also, so they don't come across as crazy, I suppose!  tehe

The Untold Story of Princess Diana is lacking taste
http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/lifestyle/book/article-23935279-the-untold-story-is-lacking-taste.do
Quote
It is easy to see why the death of Diana, Princess of Wales is material for a mystery thriller. The internet sags under the weight of conspiracies and the memory of her has not faded.

As the wedding of Diana's son and heir approaches, it is tempting to imagine what she would be like if she were still alive.

The greater mystery is why Monica Ali would seize on these sentimental regrets to devise a plot in which Princess Diana fakes a drowning accident in order start a new life, as Lydia, in small-town America.

In a recent interview, the author spoke defensively about her choice of an "unserious" subject. Diana is worthy of her because Ali is drawn to drama and conflict.

The author also said that she wished to explore the Reggie Perrin impulse to escape and begin again. This fantasy is her tribute to Princess Diana.

I detect an anxiety within her argument and it is a well-founded one. The fatal flaw in this novel is one of taste, which is somehow made worse because Ali is a distinguished novelist rather than a workaday hack. Diana did not disappear in an unsolved death. She died visibly and horribly in a car accident. To suggest any alternative scenario smacks not of authorial imagination but of Mohamed Al Fayed.

I'm sorry I can't read the article from here, but I can say that PD made me feel hopeful and somehow made me the better person I am now than I might have been.  I never, maybe, have dug in so firmly on charitable giving as a profession.  When I heard that she rouched AIDS patients, it changed my perception.  It was easy to judge then.  Her influence also made me more of a proactive mother. My children say, to this day, that bringing their discarded toys to other children at Christmas changed them forever.  Say what you will, she was a Champion. I, personally, can't thank her enough.  I brought my kids up well but somehow she shot it up a notch to 'get involved'.  She was a gift, to me.

 Embarrassed I read it. I was curious!!

This book came out Tuesday in the US. I thought it was awful. Like so awful, I almost wanted to go to Barnes and Noble (book store) and whine. Then I realized the store people would know I bought and read it so I felt too ashamed and didn't.  thumbsdown
