I don't know if this book has been mentioned - it was reviewed in this morning's edition of the Washington Post newspaper. Scroll down past the article about Princess Mathilde of Belgium.

Today's paper

The newsweek piece is tasteless trash. :(

A couple of nice tribute articles in The Lady

I think it is disgusting and in horribly poor taste. I am shocked Tina Brown would do this. I could NEVER imagine having to see pictures of my dead mother, aged by computer, with my wife, on the cover of some magazine. Once again, the line between flithy tabloid and real news has been ignored. Shame on Tina Brown.

In the past, previous well known figures who died much too young have had their ages progressed to show what they have looked like if they had lived. I recall seeing pictures of Marilyn Monroe, Martin Luther King, Jr, John F. Kennedy and James Dean in such a manner with similiar headlines (what Marilyn would have looked like if she lived to be 50). So that isn't surprising to be honest.

What is somewhat tacky is superimposing her with pictures of Kate And William now. I also find such articles to be quite speculative. Who knows what she would have been like. She could have been the same, quite different or a merge between the two. Maybe I watch too many television shows, but big and minor events have a way of watching/changing one's life. Did anyone see the Gwyneth Paltrow movie...Sliding Doors...a few second and missing the train changed the characters life in major ways.

Whose to say that William would have attended St. Andrews or had the opportunity to date under the press's radar if Diana hadn't died the way she did. Thus altering his future with Catherine. The possiblities for What If's are endless.

Unfortunately, I think her sons are immune to such articles. They have become a part of their life since her untimely death.

I don't often buy "Hello" magazine , but there are some really nice photos of Diana in the current issue. :smile:
They are of various times in her life, almost made me cry :sad:
Lets remember her as she was.:flowers:

Not so sure about the newsweek article.Who knew what she would have done if she was still alive.

Your link does not work. All I get is their online store.

Very well said. Could not agree more!

I second that! That picture was in very bad taste.

The question of the day (and part of yesterday) on CNN has been:

Is the Princess Diana Newsweek cover in bad taste.

As of right now the poll shows that 75% think its in bad taste while 25% don't.

Group me with the 75 percent. It's in bad taste, and quite frankly, creeps me out.

MissJanet 06-30-2011 01:13 PM

I'm on the 75% too, it is tastless, tacky and respectless. And Diana would not wear so unflattering colors.

Princess B 06-30-2011 02:44 PM

I wish I had been celebrating with their son and Kate 50th for years.
Would have been proud of his sons.
Always remembered and never forgotten. Diana's irreplaceable...

Diana - the Queen of Hearts - still in our hearts.

sirhon11234 07-01-2011 01:23 AM

Those photos were beautiful and large. I expect Tumblr to have many postings of the Princess later today.

Zonk 07-01-2011 01:31 AM

I love the picture of Diana with Princess Anne and the Queen Mother. Interesting how they were all in attendance at the film premiere....usually its one or two senior royals but 3/4?! I assume that Charles was with them as well.
