Cindy McCain praises Diana as 'inspiration' - Times Online

TheTruth 06-25-2008 04:52 PM

I wonder if Diana would have been okay with advocating war in Iraq but whatever ... .

I have to disagree with this statement from battlecreekenquirer.com:

"Compared with their barnstorming visit to Australia and New Zealand, the Canadian tour has failed to take off."

Ummm....I was in Canada at the time and well remember the excitement and the souvenirs and the special editions in the newspapers. I still have some. It's true that she wasn't mobbed like she was at the Sydney Opera House; but then Canada is a really, really big place and it's hard for people to get from, say, the Yukon to Toronto. :D I think that someone at the paper was being mischievous. ;-)

i remember it too and the country was very excited about the tour.

Or Diana never made the cover of the August 1983 Majesty ...

Nice picture, TheTruth! I'd not seen that one before. I'm trying to figure out where it was taken. I'm guessing in the Maritimes or Newfoundland because of all the Naval Cadets lining the route. Wish I could remember where she wore the yellow outfit.:smile:

The ENQUIRER? It must be true then. Lol!

Kp...
 
Too bad they didn't open up part of it to the public, as they did with Princess Margaret's apartment. They could have set up a display with a focus on Diana's many charitable causes, as they have at Althorp. However, I realize it isn’t in some of the royals’ best interest to keep her memory alive. (Onward, if not upward.)

On the other hand, it could have been set up as an office for a charity(ies) associated with Diana. Perhaps even William or Harry could have used it as offices...

TheTruth 07-16-2008 10:05 AM

The posts concerning Diana's legacy and place in History were moved in this new thread : http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...eft-17784.html

Please continue the discussion there.

Thank you,

Not a recent news but a very interesting article (and a rare picture), I find :

Very interesting article a good read. Thank You TheTruth.

TheTruth....
 
Yes, an excellent article. Thank you. :smile:

It's interesting that Oonagh also worked with the Duke of Windsor, that other agent of change. Too bad that the article didn't discuss what they worked on together.

I found that interesting as well. IMO, both the Duke of Windsor and Princess Diana tried to blow some of the cobwebs away, granted in different times and in different ways.
