Princess of Hearts, 10 years on...


Ten years on and I still feel a sense of dampness when I watch her videos or read about her. With so much to reveal and so very much to hide, I have always been really snoopy about what was it with this lady that made her quite extraordinary.

Wasn’t she a real princess who genuinely tried to use her influence and power in a way that mattered? Reaching out to the helpless and the needy and maintaining her sense of poise and smile despite having reportedly a broken home with a very unhappy personal milieu was truly princess-like. I mean, she could have still made some news if she only made royal appearances at the Wimbledon finals every year and hosted regal dinners to the most illustrious political folks from the world. I remember to have read somewhere that only out-of-no-choice did she let herself indulge in social activities to flee from the trauma she had to experience from her busted marriage. All the same, she did, whatever for, and continued to go by her heart’s choices and that made all the difference in the world.

You will always be the best real fairy tale princess the world has known, rest in peace!

Her death ten years ago was the biggest shock to me. Other than my GF ditching me foe my best fren.

Jokes apart. she was indeed a great personality in international arena. and she was much better dressed and well versed than the Camilla Parker, the so called, duchess of cornwall.

she spent a ton of money on clothes and was as obsessed with bein a celebrity as Britain was eager to make her. she and the prince both cheated on each other.
the way she was killed was truly tragic but please, let's not paint her saintly.
