I find the display to be, to me, kind of tacky and makes me shake my head on how someone could build up a relationship with such a memorial that lasted for such a short amount of time.

Some folks shop for food for as long as Diana and Dodi's relationship was.

I do understand that Mr. Al Fayed lost his son and was in deep mourning and that's very understandable but I think the relationship between Diana and Dodi and how serious it was had to be a fragment of his imagination.

Yeah, I can totally understand that he lost his son in the most tragic way and want to build a memorial to him and their friend, Diana. I think he made up their relationship though. He tried his best to set them up too.

It would have been a triumph for Mr Al Fayed had his son's relationship with Diana lasted and become serious, a sweet revenge against the British establishment that so decisively rejected him.

However, I don't believe that would have happened in a million years. I think Diana was fond of Dodi but had no intention of getting herself deeply involved with him so soon after the love affair with Hasnet. It was a pleasant summer romance to her in my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.

hard to say how logn the romance would have lasted.
But no matter how much one sympathises with M AL Fayed, it is hard to excuse the many ridiculous things he has said about Diana, the RF, her family etc.
