BBC World will be on all European countries. But the concert will most likely be broadcasted on BBC1 or BBC2 and these channels are not available in all European countries.

I understand there will be "coverage" by USA networks from CNN to CBS but I doubt it will be wall-to-wall as BBC America has the full rights.

So us Yanks will have to settle for snippets unless PBS releases a DVD. :(

Well its good that Camilla is going to The Princess Wales's memorial service. It shows a united front. I for one can't wait to see this service and the concert.

There are hotels in Rome that have the BBC world service but I have also stayed in some that don't.

The same in every European country I have visited.

You will need to check whether where you are staying has the BBC rather than just asking about Rome.

The last hotel I stayed at in Rome didn't have a TV in the room - it was a 3 star hotel 5 minutes walk from Piazza Navona.

Must be a new status thing--we are so close to everything and you are so important, who needs a silly thing like tv!

Bishop’s role at Diana memorial ‘bizarre’

A CLOSE friend of Diana, Princess of Wales, has condemned as “bizarre and inappropriate” the choice of Richard Chartres, Bishop of London, to give the address at her memorial service this summer

I don't think that its inapppropriate for the Bishop of London to give the address at her memorial. The Princess of Wales was a member of the BRF and he should be there.

Maybe the bishop comforted the princes spiritually after their mother's death and/or became their religious advisor and that's why they chose him? This memorial is for the living who want to commemoreta the late princess - the bishop is not going to speak to Diana but to her family after all.

I wonder why Rosa Monckton and Patrick Jephson are objecting to this now? They didn't raise any public objections when the Bishop performed the vigil by Diana's casket the night before her funeral, despite what they refer to as his failure to support the Princess when she was living. So, somehow, it's okay for him to do that, but not this? Baffling.

I know, it is baffling. Probably they had some kind of disagreement with the bishop.

I see that all the above honestly doe's not matter. Obviously, even after 10 years, those who have been judged unworthy by the 'Diana' set are never going to be forgiven for slights real and imaginary.

That Prince's William and Harry have sought to mark the the 10 anniversary of their mother's death in such a way is wonderful. But that is what it is, a family memorial service. The invitations were sent out by the William and Harry to those whom they hold dear, or those close friends of their mother that they know.

They were not 'choosing up sides' for some awful confrontation. Who can forget Earl Spencer's public vilification of the BRF during his Eulogy? I don't think one member of the BRF was spared his venom, not least Prince Charles, their father and sole remaining parent.

Not surprisingly, it seems that William and Harry have moved on and grown these last 10 years, and Earl Spencer is invited.

If they want to remember and celebrate her life, then who are we to judge their choices in such a memorial. Perhaps they are the better men (or persons).

Though, the Spencers and Windsors have since been seen together in public, at the opening of the Diana Memorial Fountain where an exchange of handshakes, kisses and cordial conversation was noticed.

I see no reason as to why their mothers family (or members of) should not be invited

That's the whole point, I understand they have. That being the case, if they can all move on why can't people wholely unconnected with them?

Of course Al Fayed wasn't given an invite. After his recent antics Wills and Harry had every right not to invite him.

He has become a twisted old man in the process of trying to make sense of his sons premature and tragic death.

He is, I think it's fair to say, a tortured soul!
