I also heard about their wanting to extend the procession because of the large number of people who would be attending. As long as they were doing that, it made sense to start it at Kensington Palace.

From memory, it was really to extend the procession in view of the large numbers of mourners was Diana moved to KP

From my memory, I think the move served serveral purposes: St. James Place was the BRF turf to grieve privately, Kenningston Place was the Spencer's turf to grieve privately and Diana, Princess of Wales was home for one last night. But most important BP extended the length of the funeral procession so more mourners could see Princess Diana for the last time.

What did Pr. Diana whisper into Mohammed Al-Fayed's ear before she died??

And was she wearing an engagement ring from Dodi A-F at that time too?

Thanks.

Yes, it was. Given the masses of people who came to London, it became obvious that the journey from StJP to Westminster Abbey was too short.

Diana was dead before MAF even arrived at the hospital, so all his stories about her talking to him after the accident were sad fantasies. I hope that his silence since the Inquest ended is an indication that he has at last begun to find a personal peace.

The great autocue-dunnit: Kay Burley claims she broke the news of Diana’s death...but her colleague begs to differ | Mail Online

I know this is a bit old but I thought it tied in well with her funeral today.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/ar...na-common.html

I can't believe the media are beginning to dub her Princess Jade just cause of the similarities in her funeral and all that, personally I don't get the fascination but maybe it's cause I don't live in the UK

http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/4247..._down_by_yobs/
I can't believe someone would cut down a tree like why?

I'm sorry but argueing over who told the world, what is the most upsetting news we've heard this century is just pathetic.

You both mean "last century" but of course your point is correct Mermaid.

Of course, Warren re: the "last century" bit. I find it hard to thing of the late 90s as "the old century."

I had not intended to read this thread but I'm glad that I did - it is very interesting.

The news details of Diana's death - first the accident, then some minor injuries, etc. - reminded me of the news accounts of the death of Princess Grace in 1982.

Grace was "slightly injured" "a broken leg" then suddenly, she was dead.
Same shock, same reactions.

I like to remember Diana from the glorious photos taken of her over the years - it is such a sad loss of a young life so full of promise.

As sad as it was/is, Diana, Princess of Wales passed away over eleven years ago and was layed to rest on the Althorp Estate which is the principal seat of the Earls Spencer, and Diana's childhood home.

She won't be coming back, but her memory will be remembered by those generations that lived during her lifetime...

I promise to think just a little on this,but only if you promise to be back in the institution on time tonight.

A video doesn't prove anything. With all the computer manipulation, you can easily revive people on screen. Pictures of the Loch Ness, Big Foot, and god knows what else were taken: it will never prove they exist.


ETA: gracerainier, please stop editing your posts. It becomes confusing.
