Today, 31 August 2007, marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in Paris.
This thread is for people to share their memories of Diana during her life, their feelings when they heard the news of her death, and their opinions about her effects on the royal family and on society in general.
I know this is a sensitive subject, particularly during a major anniversary like this one, so I'm reminding everyone to be considerate when posting criticism and respectful of the feelings of other posters whose opinions you might not agree with. This is an especially good time to keep in mind the forum rule, "Insulting comments about other posters and royals are not permitted. Criticism is acceptable; insults and flames are not. We expect our members to treat each other with respect."
The thread also is not for a rehash of the Charles-Camilla-Diana blame game, arguments about whether Charles is fit or deserving to be King (and ditto for William), declarations about what God may or may not think of Diana, Charles, Camilla, or anyone else, or any other excuse for off-topic fights between Diana partisans and Charles-Camilla partisans.
The moderators will be keeping a close watch on this thread, and I hope that's all we'll have to do. Please keep the tone of the thread civil. If things start turning nasty, the offending posts will be deleted.
