It's clear that they didn't like each other really but I don't think Diana personaly attacked Anne. Although I remember that Anne said :"It's not my cup of tea to hold every child". That was totally directed to Diana.

Well yes. I think the actual comment was "I don't do stunts" when a photographer said "Why don't you pick one of them up?" which I can wholeheartedly agree with and see her reasons for saying that. Anne did get there first and never got any praise because she wasn't a leggy blonde and didn't ask for "sicker children" to be pushed to the front where the cameras were waiting.

Well maybe but the 'leggy blonde' raised a hell of a lot of money and I don't see anybody today that could do that as much as she did.

Princess Anne did a hell of a lot too you know. If you're trying to say that Diana did more for charity, I'd suggest to you that Anne may not have spread herself around like Diana did but unlike Diana she was dedicated to every single patronage she took and indeed, made it clear she'd only take them if there was a real role for her, not just because there might be glory in it if she let her name appear on the letter heads.

Diana was dedicated to all of her patronages especially AIDS and Landmines.
She was the first famous person to ever publicly shake hands with a person who had the virus at a time when the genral public thought that HIV could be transmitted through touch. Anne and Diana's charity works are in completly two different leagues but they had the main purpose to help those in need.

Yes I know that also but anyway those charities would have never attract so many people. And I'm not the only one to say that, the charities say it too.

Actually, Pope Pius XII was the first person to publicly shake hands with a person who had HIV when he met Liberace.

That can't even be proven since no one knows when Liberace contracted the virus.

We know he had it (or at least he had been to the doctor complaining of the symptoms) when he met the Pope. Still, who am I to question Di's divinity?

No one doubts this, I think. Princess Anne is well-known for her hard work and high number of patronages. The thing is, however, you are trying to give her credit as "beating" Diana to AIDS, and I am not sure that is true. I think Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, and Diana all got involved in various AIDS work in the eighties and I am not sure who "got there first" or if it matters. I think the important thing is that they all did important work for AIDS/HIV. Whatever you feel about Diana, there is no use to undermine her influence in this area because the fact remains that her popularity was her most powerful weapon as a humanitarian. That is what made Diana such a good humanitarian, just being able to bring attention to things. As good and intelligent as dear Princess Anne is, she just never had the massive drawing power Diana had. She never wanted it, to be sure, but this is something Diana had and she used it, for whatever reasons. It doesn't matter why she used it, for the fact is that it would have been wasteful not to use such power to help charities.

Hello, ladiakmt, and welcome to TRF!

If you look at the guest list for the memorial service in post 4 of this thread:

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...7-a-13702.html

you'll see that the Princess Royal did indeed attend the service.

LOL . Sorry didn't read my sentence again. "The Royal Family announces that the Prince & Princess Of Wales are expecting". That's the title of the picture according to the site.

I have to agree--airing dirty laundry is never a good idea. Especially if you have children. Charles and Diana airing their business all over the newswaves created too much bitterness and divisiveness among people.

And, I miss Princess Margaret, too.

Like you said, revealing some private matters when you have children is an horrible thing to do. Just imagine what William and Harry must have heard about their parents : insults, critics, ... . For sure, the War of the Waleses didn't save anyone from the massacre.
