When I was researching this piece about Princess Diana and her charities, I noticed a few paralells between the Princess and Grand Duchess Ella - the combination of hands on charity work with an interest in fashion and public image.

There some interesting paralells between Diana's parenting innovations and the domesticity of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert

Then the all too revealing shots of her and Dodie on the yacht and we know that her sons were often with her.  Was is a good mother who flaunted her lovers in front of her sons?

Eh, my first post in the Windsors threads. I'd like to continue conversation on the Princess. ;-)

''Even her harshest critics agree that the Princess of Wales was a devoted, imaginative and demonstrative mother.'' (Wikipedia)

I think that their sons' words would be more reliable source:

'' When she was alive, we completely took for granted her unrivaled love of life, laughter, fun and folly. She was our guardian, friend and protector.

She never once allowed her unfaltering love for us to go unspoken or undemonstrated.

She will always be remembered for her amazing public work. But behind the media glare, to us, just two loving children, she was quite simply the best mother in the world. '' (Princes Harry and William)

'' She was an exceptional and gifted human being. In good times and bad, she never lost her capacity to smile and laugh, nor to inspire others with her warmth and kindness.

I admired and respected her -- for her energy and commitment to others, and especially for her devotion to her two boys.'' (Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second).



Everyone loves moms. You know , one man was once asked, 'What was the best thing one a woman had done to you? ' And the man answered ' She kept me in her stomach for nine months'. Well, I would give support to my mom if my parents were divorced, and if she had a man who respects and loves her, besides my father. They do not have perfect marriage,it is far from that, but they fight, they talk, they solve the problems. And always keep in minds -- Nobody is perfect. But you can do your best. People will always have comments and judge you, due to jealousy or boredom. I understand, maybe the Princess made several 'bad' steps after the divorce, but my God...

On the other hand, I understand Prince Charles -- he had had an affair with Camilla even in the seventies, and he knew that he loved her and that his true love can't be forgotten. But I also understand that he had to be more respectful towards his first wife, to one great man, philanthropic , humanitarian.  Of course that people, me included, love the Princess. She died young, she was royal, she was simply embodiment of 'princess from fairy-tale'. As one had said, she just had 'it'. Yes, I find Queen Mother as one nice woman as well.

"Unpublished" photo of Diana with her brother.

The Daily Mail has written an article of a photo that was taken of a teenage Diana with her brother (though Daily Mail labeled him as a boyfriend) where she is relaxing on his lap.    On the photograph it is written "NOT TO BE PUBLISHED".   The photograph has been autioned off.

Thought I would post this here.
There are some rumours flying around "twitter" apparently...

Let us hope that the police keep their heads and treat this rubbish with the contempt it deserves.

I would go further and say that Diana was entirely a manufactured beauty. when she first came to public notice, she was a pleasant-looking, but entirely ordinary girl.

I've noticed an increase in the talk about Princess Diana.  Then I realized why, we're only a month or so away from the 20th Anniversary of her tragic death.  Has it been twenty years since that horrible accident took her life.
