    This blue blood slept with her bodyguard, her riding instructor, and probably with her janitor. Not to mention that she and her husband cheated on each other while married. This trash does not deserve all the attention just because she spent some money she never worked for on some charity programs.

    She did a lot of charity work- mainly with AIDS sufferers and victims of landmines. She was one of the first people ever photographed touching an AIDS victim (back when people thought you could aquire AIDS simply by touching someone.) She also did a lot with the survivors of landmines. I'm sure you remember the picture of her touring an Angolan minefield, in a ballistic helmet and flak jacket.

    Big, I'm kind of shocked that you have such a hard time with her spending money that she didn't "work for" when it was for the benefit of others. There are tons of people out there with millions of dollars, but never offer a cent to charity- at least she tried to do some right in the world.

    I know she wasn't a saint- not many are, even you Big. But she was someone's mother, sister, daughter and she obviously meant something to the people of England.

    Not exactly. Not to exalt her, but I'm sure she worked very hard at what she did--just like the Queen does. As for her blue blood, I wouldn't expect her to renounce her family or her wealth. Would you?

    Big, if you were found to be the long-lost heir to the Romanovs, would you say nyet to it all?

    She was a celebrity. She looked good in front of a camera, she seemed like a nice person and did some good works.
    Plus she was a princess.
    If you understand why people can be interested / obsessed with celebrities it makes sense.

    Personally, I do not get it.

    We all fall short of the mark. I'm with Elisa on this, I choose to remember the good that she was able to achieve during her short life.

    The fact is matclone I do not come from the Romanov family. If I did, perhaps my opinion would be different. Being who I am I do not recognize her blue blood or her blue blood relatives. She would stink like the rest of us without a shower for a week. Show me merit or show me nothing.

    She earned her merit points with me with the specific examples Elisa mentioned -- her work with AIDS and land mines. I remember very vividly the images of her with the children with AIDS, and walking around the minefields. She could have just given money to those causes, but she gave herself, which certainly earned my respect.

    But even before that, the adoration from the British people started with the whole Cinderella romance story when she was so young and engaged to Prince Charles. It was like a real life fairy tale, and I think that many people have a soft spot in their hearts, however small, for fairy tales. The ones that don't, well, my guess is that these are the people that don't "get it."

    I still remember watching the wedding on TV.
