Quite right! However, good manners are never out of date.

yes of course he does, and then others are free to put their own interpretation on what he said... and to criticise him if they wish.

you really think that a child would be "blithe" or "happy" at the idea of walking in his mother's funeral procession?

They always get it wrong about the horses...she was not afraid of horses she broke her arm as a kid on her pony and that made her nervous about riding again, that doesn't mean she was afraid of them.

WEll perhaps not afraid of horses per se but she was certainly afraid of riding them. So it is in essence not enjoying a sport that most royals enjoy.

Yes she was fearful of riding ...which is not the same thing as fearing horses. It is a distinction often gotten wrong. Sloppy writing/reporting.

Part Two of The Story of Diana airs tonight at 8pm on ABC:
Watch The Story of Diana - Princess Diana Documentary 2017 - ABC.com

I was surprised to see Prince Charles's former girlfriend, Jane Ward, commenting in the documentary. We have rarely seen or heard from her.

Watched the second part of the program today. Tears just filled my eyes and my thoughts and prayers went to Diana and her families.

20 years on, her death still get to me.

Me too, Dman. Life sometimes seems so very unfair. Diana still has the power to move even though she's been dead for two decades.

I agree completely! The world lost many great and inspirational people. Diana was one of them. The emotions from Wayne Sleep and Robert Lacey got to me too.

20 years, my God!

The Queen's letter to a Lady-in-waiting on Diana's death. Very touching and true.

So true, Dman. And in this letter (btw I do disapprove of this sort of thing being sold by relatives) the Queen acknowledges Diana's inspirational influence, even after death. That it's been twenty years is indeed hard to believe.

Why on Earth would they ? She was merely a visitor in their Capital, held no position in their Country and wasn't either a native or resident.

well they might have TV programmes but I can't see why they would "Commemorate" which suggests some kind of event or religious service.

Quite tragically no documentary maker has covered Princess Diana's colonic irrigation stats. Perhaps they should, in this ALL important 20th anniversary year ?

The lists of people that Diana touched is endless. People she met and didn't get a chance to meet were inspired by her and cherish her everlasting memory.

I've had the dubious honor of being driven through that tunnel when I visited Paris. If the driver is drunk and behaving like an idiot, those pillars WILL kill you.
