Well in the pics of the final product, the main color of the room was light yellow. Curtains and accessories were blue.

Well that would make sense. The rest of KP was done in yellow. I just remember reading that Diana, Princess of Wales wanted bright color to her residence because when she lived with Prince Charles everything was dark and Victorian.

That is Diana with her friend Susie Kassem who was according to Burell part of Diana's " inner circle", fromm 95-97. I first saw this on England's Rose.I love this photo, and it's natural relaxed informality.
In Burrell's book The Way We Were, he quoted Kassem as saying that visiting KP was " like visiting a family of friends"
I wonder how this photo was discovered, and placed on England's Rose- after all it is a rare private photo, AFAIK. And who took it? Burrell?

This is such a casual and relaxed picture. Diana appears to be at ease and comfortable.

I remember seeing this photo back in July when the Daily Mail published it in an article about Will and Kate moving into KP.

She certainly was Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber fan. I saw 'Riverdance' a year and a half ago, and loved every second of it. It's beautiful. POTO has some great songs, but if not cast well, it's a bummer. Glad she took her boys to see West End productions. Musical theatre is a joy to witness (when done right of course ).

'Riverdance' is Irish step-dancing. Look it up on YouTube. It's simply delightful.

Didn't know exactly where to put this. But this even happened when the Princess was off duty.

Its a bit surreal to read an article written about her in the present tense during her lifetime.
