Well, that's the only reason I protest the showing of those pictures - for her sons. When it gets right down to it, we've all seen worse images. Chances are, so have they-but it's different when it's...

Did it stop the photos from being published? No. They've already asked that these pictures not be published anywhere. Repeating themselves just gives the tabloid press something more to foam at the...

"Private material" being the keywords. That type of curiosity led to Diana being dogged by the media every day of her life. Broadcasting these pictures is just the final intrusion into her privacy.

True. But, in the case of the Channel 4 documentary, it doesn't have to include the last pictures.

I know a lot of 'forbidden' pictures are out there-the JFK autopsy, etc, etc-but the Paris crash...

There's no reason to show those pictures, other than sensationalism and a wish to gain ratings.

Whatever happened, I wonder, to that vow all the media took the day after the crash to "never" show...

Well, I guess it depends on how you look at it individually. The special edition of the book is quite unique, and beautifully done, and, due to the hefty price, intended for serious collectors, so...

True, and that could also be said of any of the royal wedding gowns. "Historic" was probably the wrong word for me to use-except that it was the gown that featured in one of the larger public...

Well, I'll have to disagree. The Emanuels designed the gown, they did the work to create it, and they did not 'exploit' private memories of Diana, but confined themselves to sharing memories of the...

The Emanuels aren't being exploited. They put together a very nice, very discreet volume about the making of Diana's gown, not tittle tattle and lies about her private life. Their book didn't hurt...

Well, it's like the flag at half staff outrage: the media wants to keep up that "cruel Royal Family vs. Diana" nonsense, and this postcard nonsense is all they have to work with.

No, after the divorce, she was Diana, Princess of Wales...not THE Princess of Wales.

Well, in this case, I would hope Diana played a major role, because otherwise, Prince Charles gave birth, and the newspapers missed it.
