I remember making sure I watched the news (on only twice a day during the 90s and no cable tv at my place) when Diana would be on tour. There would always be footage of her. The last tour I really remember is when she went to Japan in the 90s.

We used to get quite a few photos of Diana, Princess of Wales, outside her favourite restaurant - "San Lorenzo", in Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge - in her heyday. (In Australian magazines, well before the internet.)

Diana with her mother, with William and Harry, getting in and out of cars, on the steps, on the footpath - it seemed to be a place where she was regularly snapped.

In one of this week's magazines there is a full-page article about some reminiscences of some-one who used to work there, and served Diana many times.

Now an actor, (in Channel Seven's "Wanted" with Rebecca Gibney, Oz posters - he's playing the really bad baddie chasing the ladies about the outback if you're watching this show) - Mirko Grillini was young and couldn't speak English.

The first time he met Diana they almost collided as he entered the kitchen from the dining area, and she was entering via the back door.

At times he was a waiter and at other times the water boy, serving Diana still mineral water, while William and Harry, as children, opted for sparkling.

When Diana asked him how he was, he could not answer and just kept bowing over and over to her.

Good on him to share his memories.

He went onto model for "Versace" and now, as mentioned above, acts.

How sad in a way that he couldn't have a short conversation with her, but he still has the memories of course.

I remember Diana's Australian tours quite clearly especially waiting to see her on an evening engagement in Melbourne on the 1983 tour, and seeing her in her pink silk dress. The crowds were so enthusiastic and loved her so much. I still miss her.

When Diana died, my first thought was, "I'll never get to see her in person." My husband did, in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1983. That's the closest I've come.

Beautiful memories I still miss her too.
