Camilla doesn't seem the type to "rub it in" IMO.....

I have to be fair and agree with you here, Eddie.  I've never seen or heard of an instance where Camilla has overtly flaunted her position or what it's given her since her relationship with Prince Charles became official, jewellery included.  I don't really have a problem with her wearing items belonging to the royal family, only I feel it would be wrong for her to wear any which were personally gifted to Diana and it appears from our discussions that she hasn't done this.

This particular one we are talking about came from Charles. But that's where it ends as I don't know wether it's a family heirloom or if he purchased it for her.

one of my favorite hats,probably my favorite.the only thing that i don`t like about this outfit is the length of diana`s skirt but it was probably the royal dress code that defined the length of skirt and all other features of the outfit

I don't think it was the royal dress code which decided the length of Diana's skirts, she just wore what was in fashion at the time.  This was the length most women's skirts were then.

True, just look at the skirts worn by the women above her on the ladder.  Also, it would appear she is visiting a middle eastern nation, where longer more modest skirts would have been more appropriate attire.

She did have to have her skirts at a decent level as she said once herself, when she was crouching down to speak to a child, the last thing people neded to see was under her skirt. So she took a view of being practical as well, whilst admitting she wasn't always happy with the lengths herself.

After her separation from Prince Charles, her hemlines rose a great deal but she still looked elegant.  If ever anyone looked terrifiic in a short skirt, it was Diana.

Yes, She was a remarkable person, charismatic and very stylish! Some of the critical remarks puzzle me! Why in the World would someone in the Media bother you?  ...either you were fascinated with her or you weren't? Personally I thought She was the best thing that ever happened to the Royal Family and that Charles was an idiot to prefer Camilla. And according to one of her biographies Prince Phillip said the same thing to her! She married for love and got a man who went down the aisle wearing cuff links given him by Camilla with their pet names for each other in the initials. As She said "there were three in that Marriage!"  Her Sons during the ten year anniversary of her death saw Harry telling us "to us her sons she was the best Mother in the World." I think that sums up how "they felt" much better than any other opinions.

 These photographs remind me of how beautiful She was! That blue and white Hat middle of the page and her smile is just amazing...what a shame she is not here today!
