Thank goodness it's from a clothes dryer!

I'm just thinking about all the clothes in just one colour that would have to be washed and dried to provide the quantities and colours for the lint. Perhaps he used towels.

A slice of royal wedding history was sold off for 1,000 pounds ($1,830) at an auctioneer. A piece of wedding cake from Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer's ceremony in 1981 was sold by a former royal servant

I hope that the buyer enjoys it with a nice cup of tea. As cake goes, it's bound to be a bit dry.

Princess Diana Remembered : A Diana film we won't see

I'm trying to figure out if this is the same one as Fayed was supposed to make.
ETA: it is the same film, I hope it never gets released, I can't beleive Fayed is still going at it, although it sounds as if the director is really the one going at it.

this sounds pretty dire.
A couple of quotes...

"it's about a conspiracy that absolutely took place during the inquest"
"The film's final scene: it features Dodi's mausoleum in the grounds of Fayed's home and concludes with Fayed setting alight a 15ft Royal Warrant that was awarded to Harrods. According to Allen, Al Fayed declared, "They murdered my son. I blow up their warrant." "

So the original conspiracy has widened and now involves the inquest itself. It seems nothing has changed.

Diana's favourite luvvie: Richard Attenborough on the people he's met during a remarkable life | Mail Online

Quote:
He admits that Diana's frankness about her marital problems put him in a terrible position with his friend Prince Charles. Did he feel torn between the two? [...] 'I didn't think she should expose herself to the extent that she sometimes did, by gestures, or odd remarks. She had been created by it, to an extent, but it was destructive, and I told her she must be careful. I very much disapproved of her doing that interview (with Martin Bashir)'.

From Hello.com
Sir Richard's moving account of his friendship with Diana


The Mail:
The photo that breaks Richard Attenborough's heart: Diana and the granddaughter he adored... both cut down in their prime | Mail Online


Either The Mail forgot to fact check or Attenborough getting dates mixed up. By his own account, they first met in 1985. Not sure how he got around to the next part - "She and Charles both delighted in their children, and in the summer of 1981 she wrote from Balmoral, where all four were on holiday, to wish me a happy birthday". Also, I can't figure out which boat launch he was talking about 1985.

When was the boat launch when she wore the red outfit? It was quite an occasion, but I don't remember the name of the ship or when it was. I just remember the red outfit with a beret that covered her hair.

I found the reference to 1981 odd as well. Some editor wasn't doing his/her job, I guess. It must have been in 1986 or 1987. Perhaps that's it. "7" can sometimes look like a "1."

Thank you, TheTruth. So it must have been another ship launch for which Attenborough was helping her.

Poor Diana--to be linked forever to the Fayeds. The embarasment this must cause her children.

It was her choice to spend time with the Fayeds. She had known the Fayeds for years. Mohammad's business dealings were well-known for some time. I doubt she felt any embarassment about being linked to him or his family by taking her sons a well documented holiday, as well as subsequent trips with Dodi. And aside from Mohammad, I haven't read anything about the rest of the Fayed to consider knowing them an embarrassment. After all, wasn't Camilla Fayed invited to the memorial last year?

This is so morbid , to sell a car which caused the deaths of 3 people is disgusting.

I remember the Mercedes could have ended exposed into a museum. How about making it an attraction, people could sit in it and enjoy a cup of coffee ... Complete madness

Thank you, Incas--I should have phrased myself better, looking at what I wronte I can only say erm....
What I meant was a reflection on Mr.Al-Fayed currently and his "monuments" of the wine glass and that tacky statue at Harrods. Unfortunantly, one image our younger generation who is coming along will have is that God-Awful statue. While I'm sure that in her life the Fayeds were wonderful to her, I just don't think that she would have wanted to be forever linked to Dodi and his father the way she is now.
And, yes, Camilla Fayed was invited, and she is a beautiful woman, but Diana isn't intrinsically linked to her--but to that renegade playboy Dodi, his father, those horrid memorials, and all the tabloid stuff generated before her death about her relationship with him. Imagine, for a moment, that Diana had died in Paris but there had been no Dodi, no Dodi's father, no relationship, etc.. and she had been there for some Goodwill meeting about something with the President of France. We would remeber her death with more dignity than we do now. I'm not discounting her choices and her lifestyle in general, but I just don't for a moment believe that Diana would want to be linked in eternity to the Fayed family and their over-the-top memorials.

Isn´t Camilla Fayed Dodi´s sister? I see her in lots of society magazines and she is a very beautiful young woman. If Diana had been embarassed it would have been in life, but she wasn´t, all the photos of her with Dodi and on the Fayed yacht she looked very happy.
I remember just a few weeks before she died she told some journalists that she was going to surprise everyone and change her life. Whatever her friends and family say now, I can´t help but think she was going to marry Dodi and enjoy a lavish life style.
Too late now to even think about this, it was a tragedy like so many others but most of the people involved seem to have got on with their lives except for Dodi´s father and if he wants a tacky statue and it makes him feel better then good for him.
