Here is a tribute video I found on YouTube; not as good as the musical slide I made myself a while back, LOL, (it was awesome) but unfortunately I can not find the code for that one!
Princess Diana married into royalty, unaware of the responsibilities and heartache she would endure while married to a man who had a mistress. She was known to break the rules, which the Queen never approved of, and was the first of England's royalty to get a divorce. She was known for her class, a wonderful mother to Wills and Harry, and a woman who was never afraid to show the world she cared for others; including Aids children, etc. She suffered silently; the world usually never knew at the time the heartaches and depression she went through, but always handled herself with dignity and class no matter what the situation. She was admired by everyone for her beauty and ability to do what she wanted even if it meant breaking royalty rules, although she always accomplished what was expected of her.
She spent more time with her sons than normal, as usually royalty children are accompanied by their nanny for the most part, but Princess Di would not have it that way. She doted on them and publically showed her love and affection for them. It was rare to see photos of William and Harry with their father, but many photos can be seen of them with their mother, including one of my favorites of the Princess and her sons riding together at an amusement park.
She proved to be a true icon, especially to the women of the world. She was known as "The People's Princess" - there has never been, or ever will be, another member of royalty that could be capable of making such an impact on the entire world as Lady Princess Diana.
John Travolta met her, and he stated it was one of his most memorable moments; not only to meet her but to have the opportunity to dance with such a wonderful lady.
Michael Jackson was on tour in England, and wanted to cut "Dirty Diana" from the concert that she would be attending out of respect for her, but she insisted this was one of her favorites and begged him to perform it anyway.
When greeting Royalty, one is to bow or curtsy, and not to actually touch; she insisted on putting out her hand to touch and shake hands instead -- a true class act and proof that she was interested in "people" - not just being bowed to.
Elton John, who adored her, re-wrote his Marilyn Monroe tribute song "A Candle In The Wind" hurriedly so it would be ready for him to perform at her funeral. "Goodbye England's Rose" was brilliantly performed by John, with tears running down his face, and I for one felt every emotion as I watched the funeral procession on TV.
Her death was sudden and tragic, another terrible effect brought on by greedy paparazzi it seems, but her accident has actually still not been proven to be attributed to the press, as some suspect it was not an accident at all, that it was purposely done; reminds me of the Marilyn Monroe death -- suicide or foul play? Probably both of these deaths will remain a mystery.
Truly a one of a kind lady, she is still terribly missed by all.
Diana, Princess of Wales, (Diana Frances; née Spencer; 1 July 1961 – 31 August 1997) was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales. Their sons, Princes William and Harry, are second and third in line to the thrones of the United Kingdom and fifteen other Commonwealth Realms.
A public figure from the announcement of her engagement to Prince Charles, Diana remained the focus of near-constant media scrutiny in the United Kingdom and around the world before, during and after her marriage, even in the years following her sudden death in a car crash, which was followed by a spontaneous and prolonged show of public mourning. Contemporary responses to Diana's life and legacy were mixed but a popular fascination with the Princess endures. The long-awaited Coroner's Inquest concluded in 7 April 2008 that Diana had been unlawfully killed by the negligent driving of the following vehicles and the driver of the Mercedes in which she was traveling.
