You're right: on Youtube, a place where thousands people upload videos everyday where there's nobody to tell if it's true or not. Elvis is on Youtube, do you assume he is still alive?

Dear, if you think Diana, Grace Kelly or Elvis is alive you should go to see a clinical psychologist for help with being able to accept the fact that on 31st September 1997 Diana, Princess of Wales died in a tragic car accident in Paris and she was buried the following week at Althrop Estate.

Was that the video that someone made with a Diana look-alike? Something about Diana living quite happily in a small community somewhere? I've seen that one.

Even if Diana had wanted to be frozen and preserved for future revival, my understanding is that that's only available who die of disease. Diana died in a very sad car accident, I agree.

Now that's what I call really dashed bad luck! Faking her death on 31st August then actually dying in a car accident a month later. Oh the irony!

It's indeed the cold that makes a body stay in state. Cryopreservation shows that very well (Cryopreservation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) although if you'd wished that you could reanimate Diana, there's no chance : (link => Cryonics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Moreover, her body wasn't prepared to such a possible experience. It should have been put at 77 K or −196 °C so as to preserve the cells, the brain and the whole blood system.
AND THIS! WELL YOU Gave me reasons to think !

Diana's coffin, apparently weighed 50 stone (700lbs), which sounds heavy but my bmw in full dress weighs 22 stone (308lbs).
now who is insane ?

Hard? Perhaps. But like most ordinary people I have moved on. It's time everyone did . . . . . for heavens sake, Diana's "boys" are grown men whose love lives are the life-blood of the Tabloids. They, like everyone else, grew up and older.

All this "Diana is alive" wittering is just plain creepy!

Yes, you are proving that.

What has to be understood is that they were icons when they were alive, and for the generations which shared in their lifetime. These generations, our generations, will age and eventually die, and the generations left will not view Diana or Grace as icons, but as historical figures. Remote identities of times since passed. They'll read of them in the history sections of their libraries or view portraits of them hung in museums. They way it should be, imo.

Erm, not me I think, more likely to be someone who believes Diana would cause so much pain and heartbreak to her two sons and is now trolling about the country.

The information regarding the lead lined coffin is a fact, the apparent weight was published in an article. My BMW has been weighed on a weighbridge and weighs, full dress but empty panniers, without rider 22 stone - 308lbs.

Please explain what you mean by this comment.

Everything Skydragon has said about Diana's coffin has been made public and the reasons why.

Lead lined coffins are to slow down decay and in case an exhumation is needed this is important as there is more of the body to examine.

The weight of the coffin was discussed at the time of the funeral and the reason being related to the concerns about flooding around the island and concerns about the coffin rising to the surface.

Your comment makes no sense.

Now, it's going to be my fault… I would appreciate if you could avoid rejecting faults on others, because unlike you, I have no problem standing by the things I once wrote.
All I did was giving scientific information, nothing close to speculations about YouTube footage. And, I might add that I said there was no chance it could have been done in the condition she was, even though in the future maybe we would find out a way to deal with such a situation.

Not to get into this discussion, and this in no way was started by this lastest diacussion. But I want to ask another contriversial question. Why won't the Earl at least let us have a picture of her grave and headstone? I don't mean to be morbid or macbar. But I bet it is quite nice, tasteful, and presentable. I don't understand why he won't release a picture.

As far as I understand, there is actually no gravestone for Diana. This is to keep the exact location of the burial spot protected from possible vandalism or intrusion. Those who need to, know precisely the spot, but I'm pretty sure there is no visible marker at all. The memorial Urn on the Island is deliberately away from the spot, but visible from the pathway for the benefit of the many visitors.
