Thanks for these- very interesting to read, and as always touching, and heartwarming.

Thank you I especially enjoyed the meeting Diana article.

Thanks for these. Would Diana have married Dodi ? I don't know , some of her friends thought she wouldn't, but that is not for debate here. I believe Diana would have been very proud of how her boys turned out. t They are as they are, not because of their royal status but, IMO inspite of it. Diana's legacy will live on through them, and we are truely fortunate because of that.

Well I doubt Diana would still have the same hair style in 2011.:lol:

But the newsweek article was interesting to read but also kind of creepy as well. The two things that I liked most was when Brown wrote that Diana and Charles would have been best friends, she would have defended the Middletons from snobs, and the conversation she and Brown had in July of 97.
Quote:

In July 1997, Diana told me she’d been discussing the idea of making television films about the causes she worked so hard for: the victims of land mines, leprosy, and HIV/AIDS.
I wonder if that was the big announcement she had in store when she said to the paparazzi something around "Just wait and I see what i do next." I guess we will never know.

Newsweek imagines Diana aged 50 with her admiring daughter-in-law Kate... in article that claims the Botoxed Princess would be Facebook friends with Camilla


Newsweek create insensitive image of Princess Diana at 50 | Mail Online

Mermaid1962 06-28-2011 09:56 AM

:previous: I find these aged photos of Diana distasteful; and I can't even imagine how her family members and sons feel at seeing these pictures on the front of magazines and papers.:ermm:

That photo is the most disturbing.

KittyAtlanta 06-28-2011 10:16 AM

I don't find either age progression photo to be insensitive. They've made her look rather good as a 50 year old. The photoshoppers could certainly have created vile progressions if they had chosen to do so.

georgiea 06-28-2011 10:35 AM

I find the all the images of Diana, Princess of Wales aged in bad taste. Can she not live in peace and not be cash making for Newsweek. The piece by Tina Brown would have been enough for a tribute.

Duchessmary 06-28-2011 10:44 AM

I think it's rather intriguing to see how Diana might have looked. I can't imagine her using Botox or anything else. She would've aged gracefully. :smile:

Agree with you, I think its a funny article.

I agree. Media does this all the time with deceased icons- JFK, Elvis, marilyn monroe, even JFK Jr once I think.....it's par for course in my opinion.....

I think she would have aged gracefully, too; but, with the aid of Botox, lipsuction, reborn teeth and anything else at her disposal.

I'd do the same thing if I wasn't such a cheapskate!

She probably would have a tattoo, as well.

muriel 06-28-2011 11:28 AM

Not sure about the tattoo though :eek::ermm:

It is very ill-bred on the part of Newsweek to publish such article. The late Diana, Princess of Wales, was a complex and complicated individual. However, any conjectures about her and her life are bound to be flawed.

HRHHermione 06-28-2011 11:38 AM

I actually think it was a nice article- it made Diana's very human qualities clear, but it also talked about the ways in which she was very special.

It's a shame she didn't get to live out her life, as I'm sure she never would have stopped being fascinating and contributing her many gifts to the world around her, but it's rarely worth wondering "What if", and I'm sure she'd be very pleased that her death taught the royal family some lessons- lessons which have made life better for her beloved sons and made sure they have the opportunity to have strong, healthy marriages that happen on their own terms.
