  It will an improvement on the "ditch".   The Queen said to Diana's family when that ditch was opened  " I hope you are happy now".   I thought it rather unkind.

I hope no Windsor be there (except her sons and grandchildren)... they all think the same of hers...  they all think she was a crazy woman because she didnt accept her husband having a affair and just marrying her for ceremonial purposes.... a centuries long tradition

This is why no one decent wants to marry into that family. Diana came from a long line of aristocrats and look how they treated her. No one of any sense would want their own daughter to be treated like this.

Did Charles or The Queen pay for the Queen-mother's statue?

This is a bit of a grey area because Diana wasn't royal at the time of her death, but the QM was. I am not sure who paid/will pay for the statues.  dontknow

Well the irony there is that after Diana died all of a sudden she was a "royal" and they made decisions on her behalf. Including her ex husband going to get the body. And the decision to embalm the body. Now she is not royal when it comes to a statue. I think the royals are hypocrites.

What a fundraiser's dream this remembrance of Diana could be.  The world at large would support William and Harry's efforts far beyond their expectations.   They don't have to pay for the whole thing themselves, but a starter fund would enhance any monies derived after-the-fact.

I think it about time. If you don't like Diana, then skip over the articles. I feel the same way you do but about Camilla. And I would avoid stories of the inevitable unveiling of her statue.

^^I am also not a big Diana fan. I think her name/image is being used too much by William in order to remind the public that they should excuse everything he does/doesn't do simply because of who his mother was. I think it is just too much.

I agree. But I blame William for playing the Diana card. Diana clearly did not want him to disappear from royal duties and play normal. He just skewed her message and oddly enough claimed he "barely remembered" going with her to homeless shelters (and he was about 12 so  he should have remembered). And he mostly ignores Centrepoint concentrating on "fun" events. I think Diana light years better than Camilla. William has played a lot of "cards" to keep from doing much work (even the "being with the children card" which seems to be the excuse du jour).

^True, so to me this statue is less a poignant tribute to a lost mother than a publicity stunt... I could be wrong of course, but IMO William and Harry need to remember the good times with their mother (preferably in private) and move on as she would want them to do.

I never, ever waste my time reading about Diana-syndrome but I AM tired of people pumping out articles about this woman for whatever their reasoning  $$ ... it's just enough already. I, like any people, grew tired of her long before she died and my gosh it continues. It just goes on and on and on and... stop let her and us rest already... stop

I'm afraid it won't, there will still be both pro and con Diana books coming out. In fact, Penny Junor is writing a biography of Camilla which I am sure will include a big Diana bashing session. I think Diana is trashed to try to elevate C and C. I think Diana is like Jackie O. and to this day she has books and movies about her (e.g. the one starring Natalie Portman).
