May she rest in peace.
May her family and fans enjoy their memories of her.
May everyone respect that she was a Woman, Sister,Wife, Mother, Ex-Wife & Friend; every time something is published about her it can hurt those left behind.
Let her rest.
Let her Family live.

She is an historical figure and so will be discussed and debated to the end of time.

Absolutely! In her way, despite she had no politicall action, with her behavior, she changed the Monarchy in UK! You can be with her or against her, but she provoked a deep breal through, and this will be discussed for ever.

Maybe they did not always show this love in the best way possible at the time, but they loved their kids very much nonetheless. Just my 2 cents
I agree 100%. And perhaps the 2 people's who's opinion matters the most, Will & Harry understand this as well.

Yes, she tried to change the Monarchy in a very petty way. Unfortunately of her courting the Tabloids to undue the Monarchy were made public in court and will now overshadow any good that she may have done. Her poor sons. They must be so ashamed of her right now. What was she thinking?

Princess Diana 'leaked royal directories to the News of the World' | Mail Online
The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry is not ashamed of their mother in anyway. Their mother and father went through a very tough time back in the day and unfortunate things happened. They know that and they've moved on.

If I found out that my mother, regardless of the circumstances, had given away sensitive information about my father I would be more than ashamed of her - she would be persona non grata in my eyes (and that would be the same the other way). There is no excuse for this behaviour but of course the Diana fans will excuse her, as they always do, rather than condemn her as they would any other person.

They most likely look back on their mother with fondness, just as they love their father now. Diana's been gone now for almost 17 years. She's been deceased longer than either of them were with her when she was alive. As they've matured, no doubt they've learned more about both their parents than any of us will ever know. Neither William nor Harry have said anything derogatory about either of their parents or their parents friends and lovers. The only people they've spoken out about are those who worked in the Wales households and went on to write books about their parents and their marriage.

I wouldn't be surprised if at times they have been perplexed with things that both their parents have done. We honestly don't know because we can't read their minds.

I'm a big fan of both the late Princess and the Prince. I don't make any excuses for any of them. I do understand that they were going through a very rough, tough and hurtful time and they did rather stupid and very childish things during their separation and divorce. It was a crazy time and dumb things happened. Things were leaked from both parties.

I agree. I think they know it was a very tough time for their parents when everything went down. William & Harry have shown nothing but love for their father and I know they would be doing the samething for their mother, if she was alive today.

I think her legacy is alive in her sons and I think it will continue when Prince George is told what kind of woman his grandma was when it came to causes dear to her heart. Not even Step-Grandma will be able to replace Diana in that forum.

Not everyone is as condemning and unforgiving. Some of us were taught to be more humane and forgiving. It has nothing to do with being an apologist or a fan of a particular person.

The beauty is that William & Harry do keep her legacy alive. Not only by supporting her charities but also just by living their lives to the full and trying to make her proud. I'm sure George will be told all kinds of stories about his grandmother and go on to do the same in supporting some of her causes as well.

I know Diana's engagement ring is now Catherine's engagement ring but every time I see it, I'm reminded of Diana.

May her light forever shine and she's well missed indeed.

In June 2000 the Princess of Wales Memorial Playground for children, situated in Kensington Gardens, close to Diana's home in Kensington Palace, opened.
Princess Diana liked children to have enjoyment.
It is a fitting tribute that there is the Playground where children can play joyfully.
