Well, is this the same one? General Information | Contact Details

Because their website says:
Diana, Princess of Wales Children's Hospital
Steelhouse Lane

As you can see from their main page, it is simply referred to as Birmingham Childrens Hospital NHS Trust now. They achieved Foundation Trust status in 2006 I believe. Their postal address is the one you have given.

Thanks for the link.

Well, in any case, they did name the one in Birmingham for her after her death, and the Queen did attend the rededication ceremony-so, even though it's since been changed again, they did honor Diana. Which was my original point.

From:The Daily Record - NEWS - EX-BUTLER IS A RIGHT PLONKER

EX-BUTLER IS A RIGHT PLONKER


FOR a record-breaking 4354th time, this week's recipient of our esteemed P.I.S.H. award (Paul Is Shameless Halfwit) is Princess Di's gofer Paul Burrell.
Yes, the odious git has crawled out from under his rock again, this time to flog vino in American supermarkets.

It's amazing all these conversations Edwards says he has had, with no witnesses of course! It is amusing how he says the select committee asked him to speak (he forgot to mention he, among others was summoned to appear, which means he had little choice) and how it is always someone else that intruded. It said a lot when his claims of in depth conversations with William, were met by howls of laughter!
He is as honest and trustworthy as the paper he works for - The Sun!

The thing is: it's not only you and me who knows that but the Royals as well. So if William had said that he would have known that to say that means to make it public. In that case he would have told other known "leaks" as well. He didn't so it's simply not true. IMHO.

OK. We have now unequivocally established that the man is a poseur of the first order, not to mention a legend in his own lunch time.

But let it not be said that a man with as fertile an imagination as he, does not have a great future.

I see either big money for a fantasy TV show or movie, or, (and my personal favorite), long, in depth conversations with the little men in the long white coats who come to take him away.

Yes. The more I think about him the more I like the idea of his being fitted for his very own tailored loooong sleeved jacket!

Oh, what a way to mark someone's anniversary by showing a documentary of their final hours than that of their life.

Are you referring to Arthur Edwards...or Paul Burrell?

They'll be rolling in dough for decades--long enough to hire the next generation of hounds to harass her children and theirs.
