Well, I don't think she was a bad person. I get a lot of flack from the cult of Diana because I don't really think Charles is a bad person either. I
think he just made a poor choice when he didn't tell his dad to get stuffed decades ago when he wanted to marry Camilla. I think he did try with
Diana but it was doomed from the start. She was always insecure and he really only married out of duty.
As foul as their relationship got toward the end I don't think he ever wanted her dead. She was a good mother to his children and he publicly
acknowledged that often. She was prone to making reckless choices in her life but most people only hear the good things.
I think Diana like most smart celebrities was a master of media manipulation. It also helps that she is dead. Dying young is probably the best way to
make people forget all your faults. If she was still alive I doubt people would have the same opinion of her.

That's pretty much what I was trying to say in my own way but I was writing it with a mind to defending myself against the backlash I was
expecting,which so far I'm surprised hasn't come but give it time.lol
No I don't think she was a bad person and I think you're right about their marriage being doomed from the start.She was very young and naive then
and in some ways it's almost has a feel of an arranged marriage,which I suppose almost every Royal wedding throughout history has been anyway.Of
course all I remember is the everybody saying how wonderful it was,romantic,a fairytale wedding and how much they were in love etc,etc.When was it
1982,i think,I was a 10 year old boy so had as much interest in it as I had in doing my homework and I was much older when I heard about the Camila
This is favourite discussion,debating point between me and the gf,she's convinced the Royals were behind her death but as I've always been
skeptical,they just have too much to lose if it ever came out,remember not even the monarch is above the law,it cost the first King Charles his head
to find that one out.
She was a good mother and did a lot of good but I brought up Saville just as a very recent reminder that doing good doesn't mean always mean the
person was good but that was more to illustrate my point that she was a human being and was flawed like the rest of us,I was in no way comparing her
personally to Saville.I think became skilled at playing the media game and the innocent victim role was one she played well.I put the dark
forces,fearing for her life down to that more than a genuine threat she felt but who knows.
The only way I can see their being something in it being engineered by the likes of MI6 and that is a VERY BIG IF would be them taking it on
themselves to do what they believed the Royals wanted.Akin to Henry II and Thomas Becket shouting out 'who'll rid me of this priest' and two
knights overheard him,rushed off and butchered him at Canterbury Cathedral.That is the only scenario I see as plausible and even then it's pure
I'm afraid I'll require a good deal better evidence than the memoirs of a Russian.I mean,UK/Russian relations haven't really improved after that
whole polonium business 6 years or so ago plus they seem to be on a campaign of stirring it with the west right now.Not just us but with the US too.
