: With her death, people saw the monarchy slide back into the past, with all the royal protocol, traditions and encumbrances once more the seal of the Royal house of Windsor. Gone was the 'New Age of Royalty' and gone were the people's hopes for the reshaping of the monarchy into something with which they could identify ! The people mourned not just for Diana BUT FOR THEIR HOPES FOR BRITAIN AND THE FUTURE. THAT'S WHAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT!!
>>> Hi, Kate!
Yes, that side of the story sounds very understandable. "New Age of Royalty", that's an interesting term. Maybe that's possible. If the existence of royalty doesn't depend upon them being distanced from the ordinary folks. Interesting thought to ponder in monarchies, I'm sure.

You take care too.
