Actually, the night before the funeral, Diana's coffin was moved to Kensington Palace. That is how Paul Burrell was able to keep an all night vigil with the coffin. He is one person that would, most certainly, have mentioned Sarah if she had been there keeping him company at any time.

If I remember, at the time, in my local newspaper they had picked up a story from an international news service that listed the individuals who sat with Diana's remains at St. Jame's Palace, the day and night before her funeral and Sarah was not listed at St. James.

no but someone did mention this.. I m sorry I can't remember who said it, but its possible that in some other interview Sarah said that she'd sat with Diana's body .. however I don't really believe it, as I've said. I also find it hard to believe the story that she called Diana in London, when it had been announced that she had died in Paris.. so I think that her stories are not always true. I think that she tends to try and make a drama out of things, and to make herself more prominent in a narrative than she really is..
And some of it, with Diana, I think was her trying to hide the fact that she and Diana had fallen out, and that Diana woudlnt' take her calls or meet her, at the time..
I do remember at the time that Diana's body was moved the night before the funeral to KP, as I was here In London, and we saw it on the news.. that evening.

I do remember reading it (the only reason for remembering it was thinking at the time, how sad now when she is gone and you two can not reconcile when once you had a very close bond) but absolutely no idea of the source. Let it like a lot of things go to myth then.

Poor Sarah, I think she regretted the row with Diana, and I DO think that Diana was a bit hard in refusing to forgive her.

I think Diana fixated unhealthily on Fergie as a rival and didn't realize or accept that she had all the advantages. I also believe that Fergie was unfairly abused by a media that had come to believe that they (the press) had the right to decide which 'role' both women would be in, despite the fact that it isn't the place of the press to decide who is and who is not 'worthy' of being labeled good or bad. That said, Fergie had the more devoted husband and decided to throw him away while Diana and Charles could have had a better shot IF Diana had been healthier and more emotionally/psychologically developed at the time of her marriage.

I do however find it intriguing that both were women who wanted to be taken care of and it is clear that, that was their downfall instead of being the daughters of parents who divorced.
