Watched the second part of the program today. Tears just filled my eyes and my thoughts and prayers went to Diana and her families.

20 years on, her death still get to me.

Me too, Dman. Life sometimes seems so very unfair. Diana still has the power to move even though she's been dead for two decades.

I agree completely! The world lost many great and inspirational people. Diana was one of them. The emotions from Wayne Sleep and Robert Lacey got to me too.

20 years, my God!

The Queen's letter to a Lady-in-waiting on Diana's death. Very touching and true.

So true, Dman. And in this letter (btw I do disapprove of this sort of thing being sold by relatives) the Queen acknowledges Diana's inspirational influence, even after death. That it's been twenty years is indeed hard to believe.

Why on Earth would they ? She was merely a visitor in their Capital, held no position in their Country and wasn't either a native or resident.

The dress designer of Princess Diana's wedding dress Elizabeth Emmanuel has said that Princess Diana was not nervous on her wedding day to Prince Charles.

well they might have TV programmes but I can't see why they would "Commemorate" which suggests some kind of event or religious service.

Quite tragically no documentary maker has covered Princess Diana's colonic irrigation stats. Perhaps they should, in this ALL important 20th anniversary year ?

After her royal tour of India, Princess Diana corresponded with four-year-old Avanti Reddy from Hyderabad and even sent her an autographed photo

The lists of people that Diana touched is endless. People she met and didn't get a chance to meet were inspired by her and cherish her everlasting memory.

I've had the dubious honor of being driven through that tunnel when I visited Paris. If the driver is drunk and behaving like an idiot, those pillars WILL kill you.

Although I know that Diana was well loved and admired by millions of people and remembered fondly for what she brought to this world and I'm one of them, I do have to agree with you, wyevale, that this anniversary has been done to the point of over saturation.

Even though I do have just about every book that has been written on the life of Diana, the programs that have been airing just don't hold any appeal for me at all as there is really not much that can be said and done to add to story. The only people that really matter, at this time, is the loved ones that Diana left behind. The over saturation of articles, programs and books commemorating 20 years since her death, frankly, is (as was pointed out) using Diana as a cash cow in death as she was used in life.

September is right around the corner though and this too shall pass.

With all respect and not meaning any offense, but why is this 20th anniversary being so extensively covered? Will in 5 years the 25th anniversary be covered even more, i would imagine that would be more of an anniversary nr than 20?

I know.
I can't wait for it to be over, too...a lot of wallowing in what was admittedly a tragic accident.
Enough already.


But- this too shall pass away.

This is the time for remembrance for the late Diana, Princess of Wales. people should tune out the petty stuff and take the time to remember and reflect on Diana's life and legacy.

No need to rush through this.

I'm not sure about this - I can only think that 20 years is enough time for a new generation of people to be able to hear the story about Diana. It may also be deemed a sufficient amount of time for interviewees to fee they can speak more freely than they might have done ten years ago.
