10 years ago today..
Friday, August 31, 2007




Diana Princess of Wales died in a horrendous car crash in Paris. She was a lovely person, the Peoples Princess as they called her, and a sad loss to those that loved her.

Today, 10 years on, there is a service to celebrate her life at the Guards Chapel in London, and which is being televised on t.v.

It is so wonderful to see how her sons have grown up into strong and well adjusted young men.

The service is being attended by those that loved Diana, by people that have been touched by her one way or t'other in their lives and many dignataries and celebrities are also there. The princes are there, as is the Prince of Wales and the Queen and Prince Phillip are attending too.

It is sad to see but the service is almost like a "who's who" when you see the camera panning across the chapel. But it's nice to see that her brother and his family are there, as are the Princesses Euginie and Beatrice. Camilla, the Prince of Wales new wife, is not there though - she thought it would be disrespectful to Diana's memory and apparently the Queen didn't want her there anyway.

It's quite sad to watch though but in some way if Diana hadn't died our royal family would not have shaken off the restraints of many years of pomposity and finally shown themselves as more human.

One woman - Diana, Princess of Wales, touched the hearts of so many people - she will be remembered with such love for many years to come.
