Those whose brainchild was to use Diana's death as a theme park exhibit to rake in the green dollars aren't only in very poor taste and capable of exploiting the death of a woman whose sons are still very much alive but also, IMO, the sustenance of bottom feeders.

I do hope someone does take action against this sort of thing or at least the public, itself, will find it so much in bad taste that they avoid it like the plague.

Unfortunately I suspect that there will be many people who will pay to see this garbage.

Organisations like this do a lot of research before spending the millions on these sorts of exhibits. If they don't think they will make a profit they wouldn't be doing it ... sadly.

It is hard for those of us who are royal watchers and are old enough to remember Diana to realise that an entire generation have grown up with no personal knowledge of her - to them she is simply a person in a history book - no different to JFK, Henry VIII or Julius Ceasar.

For history buffs...

Can anyone confirm/deny, that state funerals are as we know them today in Britain stemming from the decision of 'one' monarch (Victoria) 1901, as the article suggests ?

I think she must be referring to the paragraphs under the heading-

Thankyou...my concern was simply that all the details of Diana's funeral were an extension of her innovations.

Actually, as Diana's death was sudden and unexpected, to come up with a working plan quickly for a funeral, they based her funeral on the plans already in place for the Queen Mum's funeral. It was called Operation Tay Bridge if I'm remembering right. Of course there were adjustments to personalize it but the basic plans had already been established and, if I recall right, even practiced from time to time.

It doesn’t. The poster is saying Diana’s funeral was an extension of Queen Victoria’s innovations.
