Oh really? It sounded more like anti-Tony Blair.

Ah this quote:

Quote:
According to Hodgson, Blair met Diana at Chequers shortly after his victory at the polls and was considering her wish to become a 'roving ambassador' for the UK.
Said Hodgson: "But, as with so many of Blair's easy promises, nothing ever happened.
makes him sound like a lying politician.

I've known families with members that suffered from severe mental illness and these illnesses are far different than most people think just by reading a newspaper or sensational book.

This author must not know anything about schizophrenia. People can't function with it and it is mostly incurable, getting progressively worse with time. I find it almost impossible for a public person such as Diana to have schizophrenia with no one figuring out till now.

Plus there is a genetic component to schizophrenia and no one else in Diana's family has exhibited anything like it. On the contrary, the two illnesses we know she did suffer from, the eating disorder and the tendency to self-harm, were both exhibited by other members of her family and they too have a genetic component. With that family history, it is fair to say that she may have exhibited the eating disorder and the tendency to self-harm even if she had never married Charles.

But schizophrenia? No.
I completely agree with your sentiments. Moreover I find it incredibly disgusting as the lady is dead and cannot defend herself.

Her sons will never speak out imo, due to protocol. So these sensationalised books are allowed to fester in the public realm.

The princes have spoken out before, so they might have something to say. They have tended to reserve their comments for when someone close to their mother betrayed her by blabbing, so they might not say anything this time. I think most of us know how they feel about this, though, but it doesn't stop people cranking out the books because they know there's still a market. I wouldn't expect things to improve for a while yet, considering the 10th anniversary of her death is coming up this year. There'll be a lot of greedy people jumping on that particular bandwagon.

In all fairness, what good has speaking out ever done them? It merely draws more attention to and sells more copies of any book they protest against. Protocol has nothing to do with it...William and Harry have learned to pick their battles, and squelching sensationalised books isn't a battle they can ever win.

Brown launches Diana Award as charity
By Andrew Pierce

Brown launches Diana Award as charity | Uk News | News | Telegraph

Quote:
A charity set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales was relaunched today by Gordon Brown with the blessing of the House of Windsor and the Spencer family.

The awards are part of Princess Diana's legacy
The renamed Diana Award will operate as an independent charity for the first time and aim to raise £1 million a year to further the work of the Princess with young children.
It will help to fund a national anti-bullying campaign in Britain’s schools and will honour children aged between 12 and 18 who inspire the lives of others in their classrooms and community.

Since the discussion of Tina Brown's book was beginning to overwhelm this thread, I've split it out into its own thread in the Royal Library. It can be found here:
