Goodness surely it was up to her family and loved ones to decide what was best....

It was and they did. For people to be picking over such things over 20years later is more than a little disturbing. It's like the old wedding threads only with which bit of the funeral did you like/dislike most or which funeral did you like best.

It Is a little odd but I wouldn't say it is like talking about a past wedding. Even with what we know about C and Diana, a wedding is still a happy ceremonial and there were good bits to it and to the marriage as a whole.. But a funeral for someone as young as Diana is just sadness. And it was up to her family to decide what to do about having a closed or open casket.

I think it is now time to move on from discussing the issue of Diana's coffin - the fact is that open caskets for public viewing or even otherwise are not done for members of the British Royal Family and so it is a mute point.

Those whose brainchild was to use Diana's death as a theme park exhibit to rake in the green dollars aren't only in very poor taste and capable of exploiting the death of a woman whose sons are still very much alive but also, IMO, the sustenance of bottom feeders.

I do hope someone does take action against this sort of thing or at least the public, itself, will find it so much in bad taste that they avoid it like the plague.

Unfortunately I suspect that there will be many people who will pay to see this garbage.

Organisations like this do a lot of research before spending the millions on these sorts of exhibits. If they don't think they will make a profit they wouldn't be doing it ... sadly.

It is hard for those of us who are royal watchers and are old enough to remember Diana to realise that an entire generation have grown up with no personal knowledge of her - to them she is simply a person in a history book - no different to JFK, Henry VIII or Julius Ceasar.

For history buffs...

Can anyone confirm/deny, that state funerals are as we know them today in Britain stemming from the decision of 'one' monarch (Victoria) 1901, as the article suggests ?

I think she must be referring to the paragraphs under the heading-

Thankyou...my concern was simply that all the details of Diana's funeral were an extension of her innovations.

Actually, as Diana's death was sudden and unexpected, to come up with a working plan quickly for a funeral, they based her funeral on the plans already in place for the Queen Mum's funeral. It was called Operation Tay Bridge if I'm remembering right. Of course there were adjustments to personalize it but the basic plans had already been established and, if I recall right, even practiced from time to time.

It doesn’t. The poster is saying Diana’s funeral was an extension of Queen Victoria’s innovations.

I'm always skeptical of conspiracy theories, and I didn't read anything in the linked piece that made me change my mind.

To be honest, I saw this on my AOL news feed that I scroll through and I passed it right by. In the same scrolling, I also saw the rumor that Kate is pregnant with her fourth child among some other sensationalistic attention grabbing articles.

Its promotion for a book newly published and I sincerely feel that this is exploitation of the incidents that happened when Diana's car crashed in that tunnel in Paris 22 years ago.

I did not read the article nor will I be interested in buying the book. But that's just me.

I think someone is out to make a buck from a tragedy. I don’t think there is any “new” evidence to show anything else.

It was touched upon far back in the thread, but wondering how Britons feel today in regard to Diana's undisclosed resting place. By mentioning it, I realize there's a risk of ruffling some feathers here..

On the one hand the idea was intelligent not to reveal it to the public, since there was such clamouring after her in real life, and the estate felt protective. But twenty years later, it doesn't seem befitting a royal of her stature to be hidden in perpetuity.

Conjecture it is, but surely they will make it known at some point in the near future ? It's reasonable to assume a greater number of people would travel to Althorp, if they came away with a feeling they had visited her.
