Fantastic I have said it previously, instead of some memorial concert or event, they should do an award or scholarship to honor Diana. It is great to see some form of that. It is great it's open to people all over. And I am genuinely interested to see those who end up receiving it.

I think this is an excellent idea and I also am looking forward to seeing who the recipients are. This is exactly the sort of thing that should be associated with Diana's name and heaven knows, compassion, caring and kindness are needed in today's world more than ever.

I hoped there would be some events this year and I am very pleased to see this. It would be also fantastic to see an event with Kate, George and Charlotte

I think there might be. This award is just one event.

It has been reported that they ruled out any major event.

Honestly thank you. It's time to move on. Unless you are her family or friends, this need for public mourning decades later is bordering ridiculous. If her fans want to remember, put on clips of her, drink some wine and toast her life. Or better yet, make a donation to one of the causes she loved.

The awards are the perfect tribute. A way to continue her humanitarian work.


But her brother is said to be doing an exhibit and some kind of gala to raise money for the award.

It's going to a number of events to celebrate her life.

If there is any event, the purpose is definitely not for mourning. What I hope is people who know about her life, can get some inspiration from her stories. By saying people who know about her life, I am not just talking about her families or her friends. I've never met her, but I can say for myself that I know quite a big knowledge about her, because she was such a public figure, and I do get a lot inspiration from her, especially the last year of her life.

Personally, I want to pay a tribute to her in my own way, too.

If you are inspired by her, do something. Volunteer. Donate.

A concert or event doesn't honor or remember her other than as some celebrity. How many decades does this idol worship need to continue? Thirty? Fifty? Until the older generation passes away and those left either don't remember her, care, or know who she was? There is a whole generation of people who have no idea who she is.

William and Harry want to honor her and continue on her legacy. So does many people who remember and admired her.

No one is worshiping an idol.

It's true, there's a generation of people who don't know her. They'll come across her story in history books and I think it's good to teach kids about her and what she did in her short time here.

No one is suggesting a concert to commemorate. Personally, I don't think it is appropriate. I can feel that you are quite angry with this commemoration of Diana. Yes there is a whole generation of people who have no idea who she is, but there are three generations people who are still living and know who she is.

Yes, that is what I think the best way to remember. But first of all, one have to make sure the history is correctly recorded.

I understand where Countessmeout is coming from because I feel the same and, while I can understand William and Harry wishing to honour her, I think that after 20 years they need to publically concentrate on their own lives and not continue to be defined by their deceased mother.

The fact that Diana has been dead for 20 years and most people under the age of 30 (or a whole generation) do not 'relate' to her in any way, is a definite drawback. Like it or not Diana was an attractive footnote in royal history as regards her personal 'legacy', namely Princes' William and Harry but, in the grand scheme of things, there are others, both royals and not, that have left a far greater and lasting charitable legacy.

It's correctly recorded.

It is not 'historians' who love mystery - where there is non - but the media and 'the people'.

Her death came much too early, especially for her two young sons. In reality she was only a great loss to them - and of course the media, who lived of her silly antics.

The emotional loss felt by the public was imagined - they didn't know her, and she wasn't doing anything for them, except generating entertainment.
Diana had been Princess of Wales for 16 years. She traveled the world in her royal role. She met a great deal and touched many. For those who didn't meet her, felt like they did know her after all those years of her being around.

Now, the media did make some entertainment out of her passing, but her passing was widely felt. What added to the sadness was the fact that she left behind two kids whom she loved more than everything.

Also, she was a member of the British royal family. No matter how you feel about their popularity and history, the Windsor's are held in very high regard around the world. A senior member of the family dies, get married or coronated, the worlds attention turns to them. Something other European royals don't get. Some think it's weird, but I think it's an historical thing.

Time does things to history and how it is looked at and, for the most part, is broken down into facts or what can be perceived as facts. 5,000 years from now, archaeologists and anthropologists may be digging in Tennessee and find the palace of a mighty king that was known as Elvis. Elvis died in 1977 yet people still flock to Graceland to remember him.

I feel that the Diana Award is the perfect vehicle to keep Diana's legacy alive and with that, the award goes to the living that most exemplify some of the wonderful character traits that were very much Diana in her work with people.
Her sons are continuing with some of the causes that she embraced and between her boy's work and the Diana Award, Diana's mark on the world around her is kept alive.

There are times when a death will seem to make the world stand still and earth's inhabitants pause and mourn the passing but life does go on and other things become their focus.

Small article Althorp honoring Diana and the new award
Althorp eert wijlen prinses Diana|Prive| Telegraaf.nl
google translated

With the way the world is at the moment imo any initiative to award selfless commitment in people is a great idea
And even though it's hard to know what someone who unfortunately left us so long ago would think, i have a feeling Diana would be very much in favor of this idea
