This letter shows that she wanted Charles to marry her sister so if she wanted so then why she married Charles later???

No, it didn't. It said that she and her brothers and sisters were trying to marry off Sarah and that they thought for awhile that Sarah was going to marry Charles but they were glad that she didn't.

The headlines misquoted the letter.

Yes that's her. Seems that Diana will always be a cash cow for some.

IMO Charles wouldn't have been happy married to Sarah either, in fact it probably would have boiled over sooner.

By the way, I understand that Burrell's website is back up.

I think that, in addition to Charles' own personality issues, the Spencers (with the apparent exception of Jane) suffer from volatility with their partners.

I think it was in Ken Wharfe's book that Mervyn stuck one of Charles' Jack Russell terriers in the warm oven because he didn't like it hanging around in his kitchen. Not nice.

I find it interesting that it didn't sell. Perhaps this will have an effect on prices of other Diana memorabilia.

It may be indicative of the fact that people are tiring a bit of the Diana mania, and the hysteria surrounding her is finally dying down.... other than for a small and loud band of her avid supporters.

Maybe Diana, Princess of Wales can finally rest in peace. It has been long, almost 10.5 years of cashing in on Diana's memory.

I don't think she will ever completely "rest in peace". That's the unfortunate fate of many dead celebrities.

Depends on how you define "rest in peace"

Chance to wear Princess Diana's wedding dress
If one reads the article carefully, one'll find that, though the headlines implies that, it's not about her weddingdress. In fact, it's not about any dress she ever wore. It's about three replicas of her dresses and it doesn't say it's a replica of the weddingdress. Such news!

But thank you very much for finding the article for us.

Edit: I stand corrected. There is a sentence about one replica being that of her weddingdress and that she reportedly wore it at least once.

It says a replica of her wedding dress which she wore for fittings, and was kept on reserve in case the real one was damnaged.
