    Default What is it about Diana?

    I confess I don't understand. But that doesn't mean much. If you saw "The Queen" or watched BBC yesterday, you would get the sense the British people about had a meltdown when she died. And today, 10 years later, people still are still talking about her. Why? What makes her so special?

    What is so special is that England, as a Western country, is yearning for the past imperialist and royal glory. This Diana character was supposedly a symbol of royal glory days. To me she looked like a man and wasn't Queen-like at all.

    "wasn't Queen-like at all." That's exactly why the populus was/remains enamored with her. While she was a blue blood the common folk relatedt to her because she was not queenlike.

    ...and Big, if you think she looks like a man.....well good luck buddy.

    I remember coming in from a party my freshman year in college (first weekend), walking into the dorm and seeing maybe 50 people huddled in the pit infront of the big screen TV watching.

    I never quite "got" the Royal Family type thing ... but apparently people did. This was also the same night ODU beat #2 ranked Virginia in Men's Soccer after getting outshot 17-2.

    That was 10 years ago? Damn.

    Common folk could relate to her my azz. Which part? She was on TV all the time with all these different guys, living a luxury life. Puhleaze!

    Big, she did a lot of good things for the world. Simply because she married into the royal family and photographers followed her around all the time doesn't make her a horrible person. You have to remember, she was a mother to two young boys at the time of her death- so yes, she was someone special... maybe not to you, but to them.

    Elisa,
    You are also someone special to this forum. I don't see you on TV all the time though.

    I like to see a list of all the great things that Diana did that changed lives or the world for that matter. Diana was just another person to me that got way too much press for no reason other than she married into a family of influence. The press made her into some kind of saint and people were dumb enough to buy into it.
