: By the way, I was also in London from the time Diana died until her burial. THAT WAS ASTOUNDING!! What was the big deal? She was an odd mixture of a real representation of themselves (shy, clinically depressed, unsure of herself) and at the same time their ideal (beautiful, caring, able to give of herself, still Royal). It was an odd idea of perfection. And then it was gone at it's most tragically beautiful, at it's height of perfection, you might say.
>>> Very well put, Sarah. She was probably quite a likable person, but seemed to have no outstanding attributes. But the combination of people being able to identify with someone who at the same time lives the glitzy life they will never experience must be irresistible for many.
