Princess Diana 1961-1997   5 comments

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana.  She is the only British royalty that I really appreciated and knew much about.  I too woke up in the wee hours of the morning to watch “The Wedding”.   Her story seemed so Cinderella-ish to me.  I was also shocked when I heard the story about the accident and waited to see if she would survive.  Such a sad ending.

While in France on one of our trips to Europe, we decided to do some evening site seeing. As we exited the Metro stop and saw this torch statue we both said, “What is that?”  We searched our tour books to see if anything was written about it.  As we walked closer,  we realized this was the pedestrian walkway over the street where the accident took place.  Here are some of the pictures we took.  The quality is not real great because I was still in the learning process of taking night pictures!! The last picture is a memorial they have at Harrod’s in London that we saw on the same trip.

So teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom.

  1. What a flood of memories this post brought to me. I watched the wedding from start to finish, and was watching TV the night her accident happened. I was completely stunned and disbelieving and I thought they were going to come on and say it was a mistake. We rode through the tunnel a couple years after the crash and the black marks were still on the side of the wall and there was broken concrete. It was so amazing and so very, very sad. She was a fascinating woman.

    Morning Glory – Sad, truly sad. Enjoy the weekend! Lana G!

  2. Without realizing today’s significance, the newspaper I work for ran a story in our Home and Garden section about Prince Charles and Camilla. Really insensitive, huh? Our editor just didn’t realize today’s date.

    Oh SouthernBell – Yup! I would definitely say insensitive. Total OOPS! Have a great holiday weekend! Lana G!

  3. She was a special lady. We were married the same year and had our first children the same time. I always liked her. Thanks for sharing those pictures. How moving.

  4. That was very sad. Neat. I caught a bit of it on tv too.

  5. I too got up in the wee hours of the morning to watch the royal wedding! I clipped articles and voraciously devoured every detail I could…Just goes to show that you can everything this world could offer and still be empty…
