I'll never forget when I heard the news. I watched the coverage on CNN and I was totally shocked to hear of her passing due to an accident. I my heart went out to Charles, William, Harry and the Spencer family and royal family. To lose her life at 36 and a mother of two young boys was heartbreaking. It remains heartbreaking to know she's no longer here to see her boys grow up into nice men, to see her son marry the woman he loves and to watch her grandson grow up.
I think she was a great Princess of Wales and future Queen. Despite her personal issues, she did her duty to her country and Commonwealth. She was royal patron and president to many charities and organizations and shared a great bond with her regiments. She did so much for others and raised a great deal of awareness for very worthy causes.
The Princess of Wales wasn't a saint but she had a great heart and despite the unfair rumors and stories about her private life, I hope future generations will remember that there once was a English Princess by the name of Diana...who was loved and gave love.
