I believe that experience helped with counseling the boys as well. Phillip "lost" his mother at an early age when she was institutionalized. He could relate to his grandchildren about their parents' divorces.

And that led directly to the dangerous behaviour of the paparazzi, right up to and including the fatal accident.
Here!! Here!! I could not agree with you more. I hope Nazma and the countless others like her have finally gotten a life!

Princess Diana had a 'DIY security team' which led to 'tragic outcome' on the night of her death, says French policeman who guarded her body-

I think that's where the big failure came in at, the security sucked big time.

Agreed too, Dman. This could be an interesting book to read, because it's a point of view that we haven't heard before: a French policeman talking about what went wrong with the security that night. We've heard Ken Wharfe's version from a Royal Protection aspect. Let's hear about it from someone across the Channel.

I saw this on the "recent discussion" panel and decided to check in to make sure Diana was still dead.

The most interesting thing about the article, is the photograph. It explains a lot.

i found this picture of diana attending grace's funeral in 1982. it's interesting how destiny turns out, that her, being another women very much in the spotlight like grace, was the one chosen to represent GB in the funeral of grace, when she would some years later also pass out due to a car accident when trying to escape the paparazzi.

Queen Astrid of the Belgians died in a car crash in 1935, also. These deaths aren't unheard of. I think that it was Diana's fame that made her death seem so unusual and conspiracy-theory prone.
