I must admit some of those images are pretty jolly kitsch. I do find the one of Diana as the angel rather interesting. She is sitting on the cloud with her wings looking like she is trying to make out what all the interest is all about after her death and whether anybody has understood her during life. It is very curious  and thought provoking work indeed.

Ok, here is one from my collection. It is a tad iconographic, even for a Diana admirer like me. But it has personal meaning. Sadly, the original oil was lost in a  fire

I love that painting of Diana looks like an angel in it so pretty and it looks like she is trying to help others. That shows how nice she is! :) So said the original one was lost. :(

Very nice! One of my absolute favorites is of Diana and the Boys at Disneyworld  (I think it was) on a ride that went through water and the three of them laughing including the Bodyguard! If anyone can scan it in... would they do so for me?  :) Thank you very much!

It was not a Disney theme park. It was one in England.

They did have some photos taken on a visit to Thorpe Park also.

Not the same place. Alton Towers is in Staffordshire and Thorpe Park is in Surrey.

She did take the boys to Disneyworld in Florida though.   They got the VERY VIP treatment.

They did?  I thought Diana insisted on she and the boys being treated ordinarily, queueing with everyone else etc. when they had visits to fun parks and trips to McDonald's etc.

This would have been Disney's dong. Don't infer it was Diana's doing.

Not necessarily. They're always happy to give special treatment to certain V.I.P's. The (presumed) future queen of England and her sons would certainly have counted as V.I.P's. If they'll do it for the Duggars of Arkansas (the family famous for having 17 children) they would have offered preferential treatment to Diana and her boys.

Well, the treatment for the Duggar family could be seen as charitable, rather than 'VIP', I suppose - a family with that many children could probably never afford to take them to Disneyworld without some help somewhere.  Diana was not in that position.

It's probably good publicity for them to be seen helping the less well off from time to time but most people probably wouldn't appreciate them giving wealthy royals the red carpet treatment.
