20 Years on

Post by carrie »

Well it's 20 years since the death of Princess Diana and I remember very well hearing the news. Shock at her death and sympathy for her two young sons. I like millions of others watched the funeral procession on TV and felt so sorry for those two young men following their mother's coffin through the streets. What an ordeal it must have been for them.

One marriage that should never have happened in my humble opinion, I mean, if alarm bells didn't start ringing after this interview, then its really a case of fools rush in.

Problem is though, in "High Society", they play by a different set of rules.


I had a strange dream about her just before she died, in my dream, she was clearly concerned about something.
We were together in a huge manor house type garden and I remember there were rows of beds of roses on the lawn.
We were walking behind an avenue of roses and were talking about something. Suddenly she told me to stay where I was and keep still.
She rushed up the garden to see Charles who had just appeared from the big house at the top of the lawn.

I never thought much of it until after she died.


I have no opinion on the circumstances of her death.


I just remembered that she was 4 months older than me, so she would have been 56 last month.

You have to feel for those 2 boys, loosing their mother at such a young age. I Guess she could die in peace though, knowing those 2 boys were never going to want for anything and would always be looked after, come what may.
what else would a mother want for her children ?

Freedom ?

Yes, all those palaces and wealth beyond imagination, but no freedom for royals..

as I said before, I am happy to be me.
