Thank you Yennie! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the pictures.

They were published in a Canadian newspaper, The Ottawa Citizen in an article by Rosa Monckton titled "Love brings you to my heart: a celebration of a treasured friendship". The article was originally published in England's The Sunday Telegraph.

You're right, pictures from their holiday together are pretty rare, and Rosa writes that Diana told her it was the longest she had ever been abroad without being discovered by the press! Only once were they discovered, when a tourist in a Cafe recognized Diana and snapped her picture (see attached photo). It was on the front pages the next day. But other than that it was a undisturbed holiday and Rosa says that they were even able to attend a regular Sunday Church service in a small Greek village without being bothered.

The woman in the picture with Diana at dinner is Rosa Monckton. The men in the other picture are unidentified other than to say that they are members of the crew of the yacht.

Ok, I see! I had seen the paparazzi photo of them in Greece before (but never in colour, so thanks for that to :) ) but there hasn´t been much "news" about that cruise.
I´m glad that Diana had a peaceful cruise with her friend. It must have been awful to be followed all the time...

That was on the We network's movie about PDiana.

Nathalian, you must have read my mind! After talking about Diana's friendship with Rosa, I was thinking it would be neat to start a thread on Diana's friendships.

And of course Lucia Flecha di Lima would figure prominently ... I think she was such a good friend to Diana ... perhaps more a "mother figure" than a friend. I felt very sorry for Diana when Lucia moved to the United States in 1993. I imagine she must have really missed her terribly ...

Anyways, here are some photos I have of Diana & Lucia ... I know I have more and will post them later ... but hopefully in the meantime other people will dig up some too!

I'll start with a trip they took to Paris in May 1993 ...

Holiday pictures

I think these photos are pretty rare but I'm not too sure. However, even if they are not, these are two of my favourite photos of diana as she looks extremely happy in them and her natural beauty shines through.

Yes, you are right Lyndsey. She looks very happy there!
They were taken when she was on holiday on Barbuda right? At K- Club?

Thanks for these beautiful pictures and ti have removed the others which were ofensive... this is a cute forum... (by other hand, despite the fact Dian's face looked true the pic belonged to babylon, a pornographic web, so I doubt the pic is true, they make many fakes with famous women, I hope my comment don't disturb anybody, sorry)

I didn´t saw the robe pic when it was posted here, but I have seen it in magazines before. The first time I saw it was back in 95/96 or something like that. Long before Internet and computers was so "common" (why do I feel like an old lady now :P )

So I´m pretty sure there is a real photo, but ofcourse its possible that is has been changed to be even more revealing...

I think even back in the 1970s and 1980s there were some examples of doctoring photos so that one person's head ended up on another person's body; it's possible that that's what happened in this case too.


Really, these days it's hard to take any photo seriously, when you see what computers can do with them.
