I think Camilla will attend the event will be hard for everyone, not only the public but Camilla and Charles themselves. However they are not there only to remember Diana but also supporting the boys as an united family. As normal people, we may put our feelings before everything, but as royals,they would put personal feelings behind what is necessarily done. The boys are great!
I think the memorial service will provide an opportunity for some healing and closure, and I suspect the boys may have that in mind. I think they are rather special young men.

I suppose this means there won't be enough time to arrange a Royal Wedding on top of the Diana remembrances and Diamond Wedding celebrations.

They will slip that little nugget in beforehand and hope nobody notices!

Well, maybe Catherine could start her own business on organising Royal events....

A memorial concert for Diana? A great idea imo and one that is much more appropriat e than that sill fountain in London.

As for the bill, having done a quick ask of friends/family and colleagues I don't know of anyone who has a problem with this concert, even if the taxpayer ends up paying for it. What's a couple of million at the end of the day?

Why wait for milestones? These days memorials are held fairly frequently, just look at the recent memorial of the Buncefield Disaster. It seems that every year there's some occasion commemorating the 5th, 10th etc. anniversary of something.

It was not that unexpected to me, to tell the truth.
If any Royal was invited then Camilla should have been invited as well. And given the strong and warn relationships of the Duchess and her step-sons, I was sure they would invite her, if anyone else was invited.

I think a concert would be great to commerate her life! 10 Years, wow, time has passed so fast.... I'm glad to see the Duchess of Cornwall attending too. Somehow, its just provides some sort of closure to the events that occured many years ago...

Well I think Mel B is due around March, so there is still a chance it might happen.

I wonder if this might get broadcasted, I remember Much Music (similar to MTV) showing Party in the Park, so we the ticketless might still have a chance to see.

You will be able to see the concert on the homepage of it as stream. While the quality is not really good if you don't have a fast internet access, you might be able to record it and burn a DVD if you have the necessary programmes. There is still time to get the equipment in case you need it!

I was shock when I read the princes invite Camilla to their mother memorial concert. However, when I read father down it said Charlie and Camilla "cannot attent". It will not surprise me they decline the invitation.

What did you think Diana's favorite ballet troupe was going to perform? Background dances for Sir Elton John? Okay, come to think of it, they could imitate "Candles in the wind" instead of swans... looks the same, I guess...
