Arrow Your memories of Ladi Di

While watching a part of the ceremony yesterday I couldn't stop thinking about Princess Diana and what a wondeful and unique person she really was. After this mariage a chapter has been closed but surely Diana shall never be forgotten. What are you memories and thoughts of her?

i will always remember her for when she used to visit the sick in hospital, and spend time with them, that was very nice of her.( doubt Camilla will do any of these things without being asked)


The biggest, memory i have of her, is her death, when the world mourned for her. It was a sad day for many people.

Two images of princess Diana always come to mind when I think of her.

One was an image of her embracing her young sons and just hugging them in such a loving way after she came back from a trip to Australia I believe.

The second image I have of her was when she was comforting Elton John at Versace's funeral.

It just sums up who Diana was imo. She had more than her fair share of problems but she always seemed to put that aside to be there for those who needed her.

Unfortunately, I just remember that she was depressed. I was listening to the radio and I heard about her death.

I will always remember when she came to Bosnia in 1997 to visit the children.

I've sorta met Diana.

When I was about 7 or 8 I was walking home from school and I saw a black limo going down the road. It was escorted by police cars and motobikes. Then when it stopped at a traffic light, the tinted window rolled down and there were two women in the back. One of them smiled at me and waved. I didn't know until I got much older that that was Princess Diana. The other woman (princess Anne) was very unfriendly and looked haughty. Diana was a total sweetheart. I was distraught when she died.

I was little when she died, and i remember going to the candy shop and the old women talking to her customers that "lady di had died in a car crash", i bought my candy, rode home on my bike, and told my mum and neighbours (because she was out on the street) what i'd heard, and they were all like "", and i had not a clue of who she was...
i watched a lot of documentaries later though, and gained a lot of respect for her

En alles weer begint van voor af aan..."

I loved Diana. I always used to like hearing about what she was getting up too... I never got sick of seeing her everywhere like I did with other famous people. I still feel sad when I think of her death... It was like she was a part of my family or something (yes I know... I'm pathetic ).

I miss her

I remember her overshadowing Mother Teresa's death It wasn't her fault or anything, it was just a bit sad at the time.

Yeah, those are pretty much my memories of her too...Somehow the images of her in that "outfit" on those landmines are carved in my minds and her with these children that were victim of landmines and bring a smile on their face.

You have two options with famous people doing charity work; either they do it for their image or because they have too, or they do it because they want too. Diana obivously did it because she wanted to change the world in the amount that she could. Everything she did she did it with all her heart.
