I have trouble elevating any human above another, whether they be queens,presidents or garbage collectors.
I continually have this image of them sitting on the toilet, doing what everyone else does.
Anyone living in adoration of another human being is not realising their own true potential.

I quite liked Diana but lets face it, she was nothing special and certainly not such a shining human specimen as to inspire anyone to reach 'true potential' as human beings or anything vaguely like it.
The Cult of Celebrity can be a powerful, mesmerizing delusion and a potent control mechanism. Royalty is just an ancient form of it.
She was a woman. A mother. She lived a priviledged life, some of it sad some happy. She was murdered . Thats

Does anyone wonder why, even in the pristine condition her facial countenance remained in after the 'accident' that her coffin remained closed during the funeral?
I say that the car carrying Dodi Fayed had her body double, used to distract the poparazzi - the supposed reason why the Princesses car was speeding... because it was being chased BY the poparazzi - which caused the unfortunate accident. At the same time Diana slipped unnoticed out a quieter exit, oblivious at the time of the accident.
At that time, Diana was experiencing unprecedented attention from the poparrazi. Her 'death' gave her relief from this intense harassment...
The closed casket protected her - thus another reason why a young prince William never shed a single tear at his mother's funeral - BECAUSE HE KNEW SHE WAS STILL ALIVE.
Ok, all you character bashers... let's not go gung ho on this. It's my belief, and I am happier to know in my intelligent mind that she's alive and well.
