The behaviour of Harry and the Cambridge's is beyond the pale. I doubt I will ever believe payback was not the intent. Had they loved their father they would have gone public to correct misunderstandings. They didn't and created another generation of Fairy-tale Princess fans to hound Charles to the grave.
A lovely tribute from the public and her sons to a woman who meant so much to so many. It was so sweet of Harry to place the flowers in the exact spot where this precious child wanted to leave for Diana. Thanks to ITV for the little video clip.

What a sweet video clip. It probably will be something that child will remember for the rest of his/her (couldn't tell) life. Its purely Harry though interacting and doing what he does best in making wherever he is a special occasion in some unscripted form or another.

Not a lot of people , not a lot of Flowers.
The British Monarchy is now on his best.
What will happen in Dianaland at her family Castle and in Paris at the Pont de l' Alma ?
We had on french and belgian TV special evenings about Princess Diana , but it was a flop.

I just looked at the DM story - mostly for the pics, but I did skim the content.

I thought William and Harry held up well. "Tell me stories about my mum" was brilliant. That Harry knows the value of being a good listener and letting the crowd do the work for you.

But I really do think, once they were alone they reflected on how heartwarming, surreal and unpredictictable it is, even 20 years on. That's how I feel, as well.

True. Diana, Princess of Wales will always be remembered.

Here she's remembered, and the Melbourne newspapers had specials on Diana, as well as magazine features. She was on the front covers. Diana was immensely popular in Australia.
I'm glad her sons were able to speak to KP gardeners and others who had memories of their mum. The gardens look beautiful and I'm sure her sons are remembering her and will visit 'her' garden in the future.

Altho' she was a difficult personality, [and much of what she did at the end of her marriage and life I dislike intensely] the late Princess' work with the Homeless and on AIDS was transformative. May she rest in Peace.

Here in the US, if you get the Reelz channel, they're running continuous programs on Diana and her family all day long. From what I've seen, most of the programs are newly made in 2017.

How relieved I will be when all this 20th anniversary commemoration stuff is over! So depressing and sad, and I am proud to admit I have not watched one TV special and I don't intend to. RIP Diana.

Next month on Sept 14th it will be the 35th anniversary of Princess Grace's car crash and I think all the "commemoration" will begin again-to a much lesser degree than what we are seeing with Diana.

I feel as bad for Princess Stephanie of Monaco and her siblings as I do for William and Harry.

The anniversaries don't have to be sad and depressing. It's about celebrating the life and legacy 20 years and 35 years later.

Agree! But did she do it for the homeless or herself? That's the difficulty with admiring Diana for something, because she was very manipulative. And if we compare her charity work with that of Charles, then there's not much for us to brag about is it?

I've watched four documentaries: One from BBC, Two from ITV and one from Channel 5, but not the one from Sky News or the Channel 4 crap. I really enjoyed the touching interviews with William/Harry and the interviews with the courtier Sir Malcolm Ross.

And as you both wrote, May Diana rest in Peace.

If Charles had died suddenly in the summer of 1984 his record of charity work and causes may well not have been quite so admirable, though. Diana died at 36. Who knows what she might have accomplished at 56.

Lots of Diana coverage in Canada. The morning shows were about her and there are evening news specials tonight.

We've already had the documentaries in the UK, so there's nothing scheduled on regular channels like BBC One, ITV, Channel 4 or Channel 5. But the News Channels has reporters outside Kensington Palace and has talked with royal commentators.

Lord, isn't that the truth! She was taken so young and at the time she was about to embark on championing many other causes. She did a lot during that short time though. Folks just have to listen to the officials from the charities she was patron of.
