She deserved that funeral, if not under Royal Protocol, but for what she had accomplished in her short life and being William and Harry's Mum!.
and that was why she had the funeral she did!

Sometimes Royal Protocol is not the answer to everything! That is what the House of Windsor fails to realize.
I dont think they "fail to realise" at all tiaraprin. The Queen is required to take advise and what she wants to do may not always be what is advised. I think in the case of Diana's funeral she listened to Blair and her other advisors as well as the wishes of Charles & her grandsons and, on that basis, made the decision to allow a semi-state funeral for Diana. It was such a shame that Earl Spencer had to spoil the ocassion with his obnoxious retoric. IMTS, you don't verbally attack your godmother, whether she be Queen or Commoner, in church on such an ocassion. IMO it was highly inappropriate and just shows what a cretin the man is!!

In my post, I do not defend Earl Spencer or even mention him for that matter. Yes, the Earl Spencer is a cretin who is profiting from his sister's legacy. He has a line of furniture in upscale American Stores based on Althorp furniture and certain pieces are copies of Diana's right down to her etching her initials?? AND why did he do it?? To pay for all new plumbing at Althorp!! He sold out his sister for new plumbing!! It is quite bad enough that he shows her wedding dress at Althorp when she wanted it in the British Museum, but to design furniture to get plumbing?? You would think he gets enough money from his Althorp exhibition!!

I would just love to go to Althorp to see where Diana spent part of her life. I don't need his side show antics.

Thumbs up

On 31 th of august 1997 we were on the boat of my parents and we were just eating breakfast . The radio was on and the they told us that princess diana was killed in a carcrash in paris. well , i was shocked because my sister and i liked that princess a lot and could,t believe that it happend. The whole week we saw crying people at kensington palace laying flowers there. I got goosbumps all over my body
It was very strange to see that palace again on tv, because in 1996 on 31 th of august i was in london with my ( now ex) boyfriend and making pictures of kensington palace.???!!!!!

Yes we all cried at the funeral, I cried so hard I couldn't see for a couple of days. My eyes were so red, irritated, and puffy. Watching William and Harry marching behind their Mother's coffin broke my heart into millions of pieces. How I felt for those boys that day. I still worry about them now.

A live size sculpture of the late Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed stands at the Bronze age foundry in London, 24 August 2005. Sculpted by artist and artistic advisor to Harrods, Bill Mitchell, "Innocent Victims" is a portrayal of the late Princess of Wales dancing with her lover Dodi Al Fayed. Diana and Dodi, who died in a 1997 car crash in Paris, have been commissioned by Dodi's father, Harrod's owner, Mohammed Al-Fayed. The two sculptures will be erected at Harrods and in Paris in due course, a press release from Harrod's said

Thank you Elspeth. I don't want that horrible statue in this thread. This thread is to honor Diana, not dishonor or cash in on her!!

What are you hoping to achieve, magpies? You said you'd do it for however long it takes.

I just try to remember her on Aug. 31 and burn a candle, preferably jasmine since I heard she liked it.

As long as Diana is alive in her sons hearts she will never be forgotten. I agree with iowabelle; remember Diana quietly in your own space, say a prayer if you are that way inclined and ask the Good Lord to look out for William & Harry. You might also remember the thousands of others who die at the hands of drunk drivers throughout the world.

Thank you Magpies for sharing with us. Anyone who wishes to participate should follow what Magpies has said.

I live in the United States, and every year I am off work Aug 30-31. I lost my Aunt (who was like a mother to me) on August 30th, and Diana on the 31st. It was quite a shocking blow for me. I spend that time quietly reflecting and offer up prayers for my Aunt and Diana.

Everyone mourns and reflects in different ways and for different reasons. There is no reason to ridicule how a person mourns unless it is something so utterly horrible like the statue that Al-Fayed has had made.

I do agree with Wymanda that this is also a time to reflect upon William and Harry and say a prayer for those two boys who lost a mother. It is also a good idea to reflect on the many who die like Diana did everyday. I think Diana would want us to pray for all victims of drunk driving, not just her.

Offer up a prayer for Dodi, a man being exploited by his father for his own gain. Dodi had faults, but dying as he did and also being exploited by a heartless father warrants a prayer. Dodi was a victim too and is still being victimized as Diana is, perhaps not on as grand a scale, but he is. I think Diana would want us to remember that also if she could talk to us.

I will be lighting a candle in Diana, Princess of Wales memory. To a lovely lady who raise our awareness of royals in today's world. To a wonderful person, a loving mother, a generous spirit. May she continue to walk with the angels.
