Stylist makes comment about Diana's fashion
By Jessica Callan

BITCHY style "expert" Susannah Constantine caused fury yesterday by attacking Princess Diana's fashion sense.

What Not to Wear star Susannah said she was never a fan of Diana's famous taste, adding: "She wore such awful shift dresses. I wouldn't say she was someone with innate style."

Chubby Susannah, who once dated Viscount Linley, and skinny TV partner Trinny Woodall found fame by being cruel about people's dress sense.

The new low - in an interview with People magazine to publicise their book What Not To Wear in America - comes days after the sixth anniversary of Diana's death. Designer Ulrich Engler defended the princess.

German born Engler, former assistant to Victor Edelstein - one of Diana's favourite couturiers - said: "The princess went through a journey. Perhaps in her younger years she was not so stylish but she became the epitome of style.

"She had amazing style. She looked good in almost everything. She was graceful and charming and was a wonderful advertisement for British fashion."

Simone Simmons, one of the princess's closest friends, said: "Diana was a trendsetter. She led style.

"She could carry off any outfit and look amazing. All the designers wanted Diana to wear their clothes.

"Someone should ask these girls to take a good look in the mirror."

Only last month Trinny and Susannah were praising Diana. In a jibe at pregnant Sophie Wessex they said: "She's the one girl in the Royal Family who could take on the mantle of the Princess of Wales - but she has this tendency to look frumpy."

Other victims include Mirror columnist Carol Vorderman, who hit back this year after they said she "feels the need to show off as much as possible".

Carol described Trinny, 38, as "an anorexic transvestite" and Susannah, 40, as being "like a carthorse in a badly fitting bin liner".

The duo, both pregnant, might find Susannah's latest comments do not help their careers in the US. Three years ago fashion experts voted Diana the best dressed person of all time.

Magazines photo shoots, did she make them also when she was married to Charles? Or did she start to do them after her divorce?

CHRISTOPHER CLAIRE
(The Scotsman)

PRINCESS Diana&#39;s mother is suffering from an incurable wasting disease which causes her speech to be slurred, it emerged last night.

Charles neither loved Diana nor felt it necessary to tell the truth

Frances Shand Kydd said the condition, which she has never revealed before, had led to unfair accusations of drunkenness.

Shand Kydd, who lives on the Isle of Seil near Oban, has also revealed her continuing bitterness towards the Royal Family and Diana&#39;s outspoken butler, Paul Burrell.

And she said she keeps satirical cartoons of Prince Charles and his companion Camilla Parker Bowles "to giggle over with friends".

Tests three years ago revealed Shand Kydd, who was divorced from Diana&#39;s father Earl Spencer, had a progressive and incurable muscle-wasting disease which has reduced her mobility and affects her speech.

She is said to have been hurt by suggestions that she was drunk: they included one from Burrell, who accused her of making abusive phone calls to Diana which caused a rift between mother and daughter.

According to a new biography, Shand Kydd does admit to drinking alcohol at difficult moments in her life, however.

The book, Frances: The Remarkable Story of Princess Diana?s Mother, claims Shand Kydd was "appalled" when Prince Charles was publicly asked if he was in love with his new fiancée and replied: "Whatever in love means."

She is said to have feared before the couple&#39;s marriage that Charles "neither loved her nor felt it necessary to tell the truth". She was also "unable to contain her fury" that Charles? aides failed to invite her to Paris to retrieve Diana&#39;s body after she died in a car crash in 1997.

She was also not consulted about Diana?s funeral arrangements, and did not get the chance to see or touch her daughter after her death "because she was in a coffin, nailed down".

The biography says Shand Kydd felt it was "ridiculous" of Burrell to claim he was Diana?s "rock", since her daughter used the term for anyone who had helped her.

Burrell later claimed that, at the time of her death, Diana had fallen out with her mother. He spoke of a phone conversation in which he alleged that Shand Kydd lambasted Diana for preferring Muslim men - a reference to Dodi Fayed and Hasnat Khan, a Pakistani doctor she had chased.

Burrell said it was a "hate-filled, personal attack" which left Diana "crumpled on the floor and vowing never to speak to her mother again".

Shand Kydd has told a friend: "That really upset me. I would never, ever say that."

Shand Kydd also claims the Queen has never spoken to her to offer condolences for Diana?s death.

that true&#33;

that makes me heartbreak&#33; because Diana did chat her mom over phone then had attack at her mom before she died she got hung-up Paul Burrell told Royalty Magazine about Princess Diana. She aint trust at her mom lots for whole month&#33; I read Royalty magazine that Diana did hung-up phone at her mom but she refuse to speak anymore but i never knew about it why Diana ingore at her mom since her parents got divorces since she was 6 year old but Diana been visit her dad lots till her dad died in 1992. Because she makes meant to get another new love with Dodi because he is muslim&#33; but her mom said why Diana get date with Dodi after divorce from Prince Charles&#33; but Diana wanted to marry him&#33;

her mom never see Diana&#39;s body after she died in Paris, France but they got nail down&#33; i dont think so Diana got drunk&#33; she got victim from accident&#33; before she died in March 1992 when her dad the 8th Earl Charles Spencer died but she wanted see his body opened coffin they later her family cant see Diana&#39;s body they got nail down&#33;

I really totally agree with Paul Burrell&#39;s story last year because what he said about Princess Diana&#39;s employer&#33; he knew about Prince William and Harry also&#33; im really proud of him why he did interview about Princess Diana&#33;

I knew Prince William and Harry never spoke his mom for month before his mom&#39;s death but Princess Diana always talking over William every day not as Harry, Charles because she wanted to talk to first son like as mom-son phone conversation&#33;

Baby joy for Earl Spencer

Earl Spencer, the brother of Diana, Princess of Wales, has announced the birth of a son with his second wife.

Edmund Charles Spencer was born in the early hours of Monday morning at an unnamed London hospital.

He and his mother, former school teacher Caroline Freud, are both said to be doing well.

The Earl has three daughters and a son from his previous marriage to Victoria Lockwood.

His new wife, who he married in December 2001, has two children from her previous marriage.

The baby was born at 1.28am on Monday after Countess Spencer was admitted to hospital on Sunday night, a family spokesman said.

"Everyone&#39;s very happy and fine," he added.

The Earl was understood to have been present for the birth.[COLOR=blue][COLOR=blue]

Diana, A Celebration

North American premiere engagement of Diana, A Celebration to open December 19 at Toronto&#39;s Design Exchange

Toronto, Ont. The North American premiere engagement of Diana, A
Celebration
, the award-winning exhibition on the life and work of the
Princess of Wales, will open at Toront&#39;s Design Exchange on December 19,
2003 and run until April 11, 2004.

Diana, A Celebration, comes directly from the Althrop Estate in Engalnd, the
Spencer Family&#39;s ancestral home, where it has been on display since 1998 and
has attracted over 700,000 visitors, although open for only three months of
the year. The exhibition showases the life and work of one of the most
remarkable women of her time - certainly one of the most photographed, with
over one billion television viewers who watched the 1981 Royal Wedding. Her
charm, beauty and easy grace touched people worldwide during her short and
complex life.

The exhibition is being produced by Arts and Exhibitions International. All
profits generated to the Althorp Estate from the Toronto Exhibition will
support the ongoing work of the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund to
benefit communities living with the legacy of landmines, cluster bombs and
other explosive remnants of war.

A series of 150 stunning objects chronicle her life and invite the visitor
to share the milestones of her many roles: as a youngster, schoolgirl and
athlete; as the shy kindergarten tacher who captured the heart of the Prince
and the public; as the young, ravishing royal bride; as the devoted mother,
sister and daughter; and as the tireless charity advocate and spokeswoman.
The strength of the Spencer women and their roots in the bucolic
500-year-old Althorp Estate form the backdrop for Diana&#39;s formative years.

Also featured in the exhibition are portraits of her ancestors, family
jewels, heirlooms, paintings, artifacts and photos, which provide the
historical context. Film footage and scenes from her childhood, her
engagement to Prince Charles and the events leading up to the Royal Wedding
are remembered and animated with video clips, personal possessions, photos,
displays and letters. The glorious Royal Wedding features her resplendent
gown, diamond tiara, veil and 25 ft. train, shoes and parasol, her
bridesmaid¹s dress among other items.

One entire section is devoted to her energetic and multi-faceted public life
and the myriad of charities and causes, including her pioneering efforts in
AIDS, the homeless and landmines. A three-screened video presentation
highlights the hundreds of associations that continue to benefit from her
patronage and energetic dedication. The world&#39;s grief at her untimely death
is dealt with sensitively, in a display of books of condolence and space for
reflection and remembrance.

A few of the many dazzling items on display include:

* 28 dresses, suits and evening gowns worn by the Princess during her public
life, accompanied by photos from the event at which the outfit was seen and
designer details
* Two diamond tiaras and other priceless family jewels
* The original text of the Earl Spencer&#39;soving tribute to his sister at the funeral in Westminister Abbey
* The score and lyrics of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin composition, adapted from "andle in the Wind."
* Original heritage family paintings by John Singer Sargent and Sir Thomas
Gainsborough.
* Her magnificent Royal Wedding gown, as described above.

In announcing the Toronto engagement, producer John Norman, President of
Arts and Exhibitions International stated, "Earl Spencer and I are
especially pleased that the North American debut of Diana, A Celebration
will be held in Toronto, as Canadians demonstrated their affection and
respect for the Princess during ther three Canadian trips, including one
Toronto visit. This exhibition will allow us to pay dignified respect to the
memory of this extraordinary woman."
