The life of Diana, Princess of Wales was tragically, cut short at 37. She would have found more maturity and religion in her life if she lived to be older. I don't think the psychics and the self help stuff would have lasted. Her legacy is her children. I hope the Princes turn out as she would have helped them to become.

I think they are turning out as she would want, William at least. Harry is more impetous. I wonder how her life would have gone had she lived. One book, does talk of her more serious interests, the book by Anthony Holden about Diana.That book seems to support what you say that the psychics, etc wouldn't have lasted.

The Princess would have been proud with both of these events.

Diana enjoyed visiting and volunteering at a nearby nursing home when she was in boarding school, I believe. The last story reminded me of that. Diana could relate to both the very old and the very young- as illustrated in numerous photos from her years as a royal. But it started long before that.

I think her death changed some people for a short time, they then went back to their normal lives and seemed to look back at the hysteria with bemusement.

I think the question is the subheading of her post: Has Princess Diana's death changed Britain?

I agree with Skydragon; I don't see any long-term changes, including unfortunately the way the tabloid press and the paparazzi ply their trade.

Although I'm not British and I haven't been there, I would say no. We've developed a culture of celebrity, and current flavor of the month is Jade Goody, or Britney or Lindsay or whoever else. The public is very fickle.

From my visits to Britain before and after her death I would say no.

One of the great ponderables: why are we so celebrity-minded these days? I think that it has to do with the Age of Information and how readily images are therefore available. Ever since television came into most people's homes, image has been supremely important.

I don't think Diana's death changed Britain, although I'm not from there and have never been there. Someone's death usually doesn't change anything, it's their life that changes things. Diana's life had more impact than her death. I don't think what happened with her death was hysteria, it was just people were shocked at her sudden death- collective shock. But once time went by, people got over it. Had Diana died at a reasonable age, her death would have triggered mourning, but it was the shock of her sudden death at a young age that led to the temporary impact of her death, with all the mourning.

Spot on. I think you've said it perfectly.

Very good thoughts Grace Angel. Diana, Princess of Wales' life works and her boys will be her legacy.

Diana was awarded in boarding school a special prize for service. She had a role as perfect in her school and did the role very well. She also did a good job of visiting a nearby nursing home and really made the patients there enjoy the time. She would dance with wheel bound patients by placing the wheel chair in a special position so she and the elderly patient could dance together!!! How smart she was with people-true Princess material.

I always found the accusations of Diana's charity work to only be a ploy to boost her image far-fetched. Since she was a child she had a knack for helping others.

Defintely. Diana wasn't perfect but she was very popular with the British people, and had innate touch with people that you could see from childhood. She was a very caring person.
