Jeez, give the Prince a little credit for being human and having a heart. They had two children together, and they shared some unique experiences-it wasn't ALL bad.

I've just deleted several more posts. Please keep this thread on topic and be considerate of other posters' feelings when expressing your opinions about whether Diana should have a memorial service next year and what form, if any, it should take, or we'll have to delete yet more posts.

I was fairly young at the time (12, almost 13) and I just couldn't believe it, the next day when I went to school all my classmates were just like me, in a kind of shock, we couldn't believe she was dead...
I'll always remember her as the person who held AIDS patients and african babies, the person who did campaigns against the landmines, those are the images I'll always keep of her

I was sittting in my livingroom watching american football and the scroll came across the bottom of the TV, at first it said she was just injuried. I immediately turned to a news station and learned like everyone else that Princess Diana had died at the Hospital. At the time my son was 8 yrs old and all I could think about was William and Harry. I was so shocked, my heart just broke. I remember watching almost non-stop coverage and even got up at 4am, along with my son, to watch her funeral. I had always been fan of Diana, since I watched her wed on TV, so I really felt like I had lost a close member of my family. I remember watching the boys walk behind her and I just cried. I was really glad they didn't allow pictures of them during the service. Of course, I went right out and bought Candle in the Wind 1997. I guess, like Elvis, she is one person that we were never suppose to see grow old. I think from the experience of watching the boys be so strong, I will always consider William and Harry as boys.
I just wish that the media and the people who were suppose to be her friends would just let her rest in peace and allow her children some sense of peace in a tragedy that will be with them forever.

I was 7 years old when Diana died I remember waking up and seeing the car and an ambulance leaving the scene. And I remember seeing her name on t.v. and it was around 12:00 am I didn't realize that Diana passed until 7:00 am. The funeral was the most saddest occasion that I had ever seen and my heart went out to william and harry. To me at the time Diana was that pretty Princess who liked to help people.

I remember clicking on the TV and seeing a news report that she had been injured in a car accident in Paris. Soon after it was announced that she had died. I was quite shocked and surprised because it just seemed such an unexpected thing to have happened to her of all people. At the time I didn't know she had been in Paris and wondered what she was even doing there.

I had always been "neutral" in regard to Diana, and by that I mean that I did not dislike her but also had no emotional investment in her. In fact, frankly, I hadn't really regarded her as part of the Royal family for years and didn't follow her activities. Even so, I was horrified that she had died so young in such a way. I'd been under the impression that she had "moved on" in her life and had begun to forge a calmer and friendly relationship with the Prince of Wales, which I thought was such a good and healthy thing.

I remember thinking how fortunate that Prince William and Prince Harry were at Balmoral with their father and grandparents, where they could be private and not have attention right at their doorstep.

Also, I must be honest and admit (this won't make me popular I'm sure) that one of my thoughts that day and the hours immediately following was "I hope this won't ruin the celebrations for the Queen's Golden Wedding."

What a shock! My first thoughts were for her boys. I think she would be very proud of the young men they have become. I must say I was very dis-illusioned with Diana because of her choice of boyfriend. I think she could have done better. In all that was a very sad day.

Having never met Diana, it is so unbelieveable that so many, including myself, were so deeply saddend by her passing and it really did feel like a personal loss to me.

Diana was just there! On the news, magazines and in newspapers. Reading about her was something you expected to do and for many of us, it was something we enjoyed and looked forward too.

I think I will always miss Diana. Her smile, warmth and sincerity. She was a lady who had crossed troubled waters in both childhood and adult life and had come through the other side, or had at least started too.

The accident happened on a Saturday night...I remember going to mass the next morning and the priest offering up prayers for her and for her family that they may find peace and courage over the next few days.
Then going home and watching on TV, the public shun the Press, as they seemed to be blaming them for the accident...
Now, 9 years on, the grief is still there as she was so popular, but we move on...

I was ill and asleep in bed and awoke with a start and walked out and my husband was watching the t.v. and quickly switched the channel. I asked him why and he mumbled something and as I pressed him he stated that Princess Diana had been in an automobile accident and he quickly switched the channel back, he didn't want to upset me. At that time they were stating she had just broken her arm. My husband and the rest of my family soon went to bed but I stayed up looking at mindless t.v. getting reports here and there of her condition. All of a sudden a flash came on t.v. stating that Princess Diana had died of her injuries and I was all alone. I was just so shocked! I don't know if it was because I was ill or what but I just burst out crying and cried my heart out.

I too had two boys, although they were younger and hugged them in their sleep before I went to bed that night. I awoke to headlines that again brought it all back to me. Every woman I knew called me crying, even those that weren't Princess Diana fans! I don't know what it was that triggered this much emotion and still don't but it happened worldwide. To me it was a personal emotion to others who weren't fans I just don't know.

I followed her from when she first came into the limelight through all of it, I was drawn to her special light. I too think that what upset me the most about her death is that she obviously died so young but that she had moved on both in her personal life and had finally found work that she believed in and she was making such a difference in the world, and of course her beloved boys. I still miss her!

She is in everything in my life, she is very present in all, but i cant with this,her death still is very fresh in myself, I feeling terrible now and I cant sain much more, she is everithing.....she never will be forgetted

Diana, with all the love from my heart:

it was my north, south , this and west united
my day of work and my Sunday
noon, midnight, songs and words
I thought to always have by the love, I was mistaken
to extinguish absolutely to this sky starred
I want surrounded the moon and the dismantled sun
to drain the ocean, the forests you devastate
nothing serves as anything and everything is of more
