I'm not ruling it out on the basis of personal opinion. I'm ruling it out on the basis of common sense and decency. It won't happen.

BeatrixFan how do you know that it won't happen. We didn't know that after charles and Diana got divorced that she would die a year later or how do we know that Charles will predecease the Queen anything can happen.

No, anything cannot happen. This is an institution built on 1,000 years of history. Let's get this into perspective. Diana wasn't a member of the Royal Family for very long. When she departed, she embarrassed them. She voluntarily gave up her HRH. There is absolutely no reason why she should get the HRH back.

I believe that by being the mother of the future King of England, Princess Diana will always be a part of the royal family. What a nice touch it would be if William did make the decision to restore his mother's HRH style. What would it hurt anyway - it would warm hearts and allow her memory some peaceful closure.

Yes she was BeatrixFan.

Even after the divorce, Diana remained a member of the royal family, something Queen went to lengths to ensure.

It is even mentioned in Gyles Brandreth's Philip & Elizabeth - Portrait of a Marriage.

As did her hsband if you really feel it necessary to play the blame game.

Before this gets sidetracked into a discussion of Charles versus Diana, is this really a useful line of discussion? Since we're talking about something that may or may not be an issue in the future, and since we don't know what the future necessarily holds, it doesn't seem as though there's very much productive discussion to be had on the subject of what William may or may not do about his mother's title or anything else about her.

I just find it quite amazing that people are so desperate to see three letters given to a woman who a) didn't deserve them and b) didn't want them. Quite bizarre.

I agree Elspeth,

My intention is not to start a Wales's debate (I'm so over that) but I think it only right to note that blame is not something that should be directed at any one person. That's the only point I wished to make and I of course shall leave it there.

How anyone else wishes to respond is up to them but I won't be taking part in such a debate.

For the record, I didn't bring up Charles. I simply said that she embarrassed the Royal Family and there's no denying that. Even Diana's fondest admirers admit that. The fact is, Diana had refused that HRH several times before her death. To re-instate it (which is impossible) would be truly silly. I sometimes wonder if people actually want the monarchy the survive at all.

But what does having Diana's HRH restored to her has to do with the monarchy not surving.

Because the moment you start giving dead people honours, debate begins to surface. There'll be questions about the honours system, titles and before you know it - the very question of monarchy itself. The Queen is lucky - she can do no wrong and nobody will question the role of monarch whilst she's alive because she's served us for over 50 years and she's an old lady now. Charles is lucky - questions won't be asked because he's waiting for it and he's been waiting for it for a very long time. But William has no excuses. The political climate is not in his favour, there are big changes coming and if he's going to sod about giving dead people honours, people who didn't even want them when they were alive, he'll open up a can of worms that the monarchy WILL NOT survive.

That was Diana. She made it explicitly clear that she didnt want it.

But what if the queen gave Diana her HRH back(and we all know she won't) but what if she did would it cause such a problem.

Well, the Queen wouldn't give it back because Diana said she didn't want it. So why would she give it back in the first place?

No, not really. Speaking in hypotheticals, it would have been consented too by the monarch and her government so I see very little reason as to why there would, infact, be a problem.

I personally, dont see any 'need' for the reinstating of a HRH styling, but if it did ever occur I would not object to it, nor would I dismiss it. If William does (none of us know) decide to one day accord his mother a royal style then I would view it as a tribute to his late mother, a public show of admiration and pride to the mummy he and Harry never grew to have by their sides. Some will disagree with this view and that is perfectly fine, but I know a great many people who would welcome such a move and I know some less inclined to do so aswell.

It would of course annoy some, but they would have to learn to either like it or lump it (respectively).

I find it interesting that those who want to see the HRH restored can't answer a simple question. Why would it be restored when Diana herself rejected it?

No we wouldn't. We'd sit night and day outside Buckingham Palace protesting. And then we'd become republicans.

BeatrixFan, you seem to be insinuating that I have said I wish for the Royal distinction to be reinstated to Diana and after having made my point clear, I would have thought that it is blatantly obvious I have stated otherwise (my reasons are much different to yours I may add, but none the less..)

I'm sure they could corner off a 5 by 5 metre square for you all, infront of the Victoria monument

No no, I didn't mean you. I was referring to those who are desperate that the HRH be restored and was just posing the question, why can't they give reasons for their opinions. They say they want to see the HRH re-instated but they don't seem to recognise that the woman they idolize had refused the HRH several times when she was alive. Talk about going against someone's wishes.

I don't know quite what's so hilarious. You think I'm a minority? From the people I speak to, most of them are convinced that King William will be the last King. He'll cock it up and Britain will become a Republic. And as soon as that boy takes the throne, I'll be a republican myself. If I'm still here which I very much doubt.
