OK. Don't listen to whatever other people say that point to reasons that its very possible why Harry, himself, says that he has very few memories of his mother. His words obviously don't mean anything either when it comes to forming an opinion.

To keep insisting that what you think is the credible truth actually just degrades the value of your opinions. Its how things work. I lean towards believing what Harry, himself, has stated.

Oh Dman, Thankyou for posting this. What an absolutely beautiful garden in Diana's honour, an oasis of peace and calm and loveliness! All those white flowers will attract bees as well. Her sons will take a walk around sometimes I'm sure. Maybe their mother is looking down and admiring it too!

You're welcome. I just want to sleep in that garden. I find very breathtakingly stunning. It's all for her and I know she's loving it from up above.

Its perfectly beautiful. In the midst of the London area with all its hustle and bustle and rushing to get where one's going, this garden seems to make time stand still and whisper "smell the roses" errr... tulips.

What goes through my imagination is Charlotte walking up to Kate and saying something along the lines of "Can we go smell Grandma's flowers today?" The forget-me-nots will really be serving to keep Grandma in the hearts and minds of those that knew and loved her and even those that never got the chance to.

I love things like this as its a reality that even though Diana is gone, she's still alive in the hearts and minds of those that love her.

Maybe it is the photo, but I didn't like it. It seemed too formal and too much white. I might go and have a look at it over the weekend as perhaps it looks better "up close."

I live near KP, but it is not relaly that glamourous a place. I thought the garden in the picture looked over formal, with everything in rigid lines.

I think it fits nicely in with the palace. The layout was already there and was known as the Sunken Gardens. Its the planting of the different flowers that were done in Diana's memory.

I thought it looked like that garden.. I know it, and It was rather rigid IMO and dreary. And somehow the heavy preponderance of white flowers doesn't seem right when it is doen so rigidily. If they were more loosely arranged, I think it would be better.
If the weather picks up this weekend I might go and see it.

White flowers are an important element for something called 'The White Garden'

Sorry but not a huge fan. I love the white flowers, especially tulips as my favorite. But the big pots of flowers look bizarre and out of place. They stick out like sore thumbs. It would look much more beautiful IMO if just the garden beds.

I know it is The White Garden, and it's pretty, but.

I really prefer lots of colors in a garden. Riotous, joyful, vibrant...it just appeals to me more than something like this.

I will. Almost went today, as I was on a bus quite near it, but it was looked like it might rain!! I think it is a shame that they did not have a garden memorial for Di years ago.. I remember thinking way back years ago that a garden with roses and lilies and lots of differnet stuff would be a nice memorial, then they came up iwith the awful fountain.

I may be totally off base but often times white flowers are used in remembrance of the dead as it symbolizes the restoration of innocence to the departed soul. Hence the white tulips and the white forget-me-nots.

Just an odd thought.
