I don't know how The Crown can spend so much time on her - she was in the family's life for only 17 years and they are supposed to be doing 10 years each season so it should be no more than 1.5 seasons with her.

Of course the anti-Charles brigade are having a field day - and there are many younger people who are buying into this as well.

As for coverage on here being the only place - in Australia the morning news shows (Channel 7 in particular) have been running new stories most mornings as they are showing every documentary and using excerpts on an almost daily basis.

The polls are showing the impact - up for William and down for Charles.

There won't be a balance as the press don't want any balance - they want to punish Charles because they lost their insider to the BRF with Diana's death and they lost their cash cow as well. They want to be seen as her great defender rather than be remembered for their role in her death (same as her fans).

How about because she is the future Kings mother.

I"m assuming that like me, Pranter doesn't go looking for Diana stuff elsewhere besides reading about it here on TRF. I'm sure there's a plethora of magazines and TV shows that are available should I care to find them. I just don't care to.

Discussing Diana and reading about what is going on Diana wise here is enough for me.

I can see the headline now.. Diana-She had SOCKS APPEAL!
Well, she did have those nifty polka dot socks she wore with the polka dot skirt to polo in 1986!

I guess you don't glance at the magazines at the grocery checkout then--because Diana is or has been on the cover of most of them.. Plus my Yahoo home page has links to stupid articles.

While we all vilify the Daily Fail we also just about all seem to agree that they have both the best photographers and thus the best photographs. So yes, I'll put my hand up to check out the photos at any engagements or even that describing Diana's wardrobe.

It is interesting to see how she went from a typical, everyday, young woman with pretty much no taste to being seen as a well-deserved style icon. One thing I love is that each ensemble isn't accompanied by a price list. I never really thought much about couture or bespoke clothes, merely accepting that Royal wore them. Now I see the virtue of it as they were never used as unpaid models.

Agree whole-heartedly, but I just don't think that's what we will see. You can see that in the most recent articles and programmes. I agree with those who have said it should be possible to celebrate Diana without vilifying Charles and Camilla but that's not the way the popular press works. As I said above, they want everything and everyone neatly cast - hero or villain.

I think if it wasn't for the excellent photography that is in the Fail, they'd have gone out of business a long time ago. They do surprise me every now and then and actually print something I find worth reading but it doesn't happen too often.

They have magazines at the supermarket checkout? Its been years since I've been in a grocery store checkout lane. Basically because hubby is much, much better at sticking to a list than I am so I'll make up the grocery list and he'll go and get it. Saves a lot of money that way and on a fixed income, its a necessity for us. I'm too much of a "Oooh! that looks so good" and end up spending way more than the budget calls for.

I do have an extensive library of books on Diana. I find her a very interesting person with both negatives and positives to her like all of us. I really enjoy the Diana discussions here at TRF immensely too.

Even in the NL a couple of the documentaries have been broadcast (i hope that means that from now the dutch royalty show Blauw Bloed will get her name right, a few years ago they kept calling her "Diane" ).

Imo here she gets about the same coverage as for instance Elvis Presley or Janis Joplin, so i'm pretty sure interest in Diana will not cease to be any time soon...

At the library yesterday, I glimpsed the cover of the new issue of People mag.
You guessed it- all about Diana!
I'll probably read it later today (even though I'm one of those who wishes this media saturation would end). Contradictory, I know.

The media's fascination with historical figures never really go away. It just dies down for a while, but comes back for these commemorative years.

William and Harry are making the 20th anniversary count. People just have to overlook the petty stuff. It's just a distraction from what's really important.

Yes she did and I'd forgotten about those polka dot ones. Thanks for reminding me.

Excellent point! I hadn't thought of that!

I've followed Diana since her wedding day, wept at the news of her death, and have watched her sons carry on. I will be watching the Diana specials I have dvr'd with a bowl of popcorn beginning tonight, and I have no shame.

I'm kinda glad that they are showing all these specials about Diana. My mom has always admired her. She never slows down long enough to read/see anything in its entirety, so she just knows the positive side of Diana and remembers her as being a young lady, with a husband who did not love her and had a mistress. Therefore, she dislikes Charles and Hates Camilla.
Over the years I've told her a lot about what I've read here on this forum and all the knowledge that people share.
It's really opened her eyes to the duplicity.
And now that they are showing all these things over again, she is really seeing the other side of Diana the family.
It's fun to see things that are "old news" to me, but very "new" to her. The tv will quickly mention something about Diana, Camilla, Charles, the Queen, ect. and then I expand on it for her if I know. It's fun.
So thank you one and all for helping me look smart!

Just remember everything that is said on here isn't always true either.

If anyone is interested, Diana, Seven Days That Shook The World chronicling the seven days after Diana's death and her funeral is on Netflix in the US.

I just finished it and thought it was very well done.
