My interest in Diana goes waaaay back to when she and Prince Charles were first engaged. I can remember getting up at 5:00 a.m. on their wedding day and my Mom and I watched all of the wedding ceremony and festivities on television. It was so exciting! I thought she was the most beautiful bride ever! Of course, the 1980's found many brides trying to emulate her wedding style. When the Mr. and I were married in 1983 I had visions of looking just like Princess Diana in my wedding gown. What do you think?
Diana's sense of style was gorgeous. She was always impeccably dressed in my opinion. And, of course, I admired her beautiful engagement ring which is now worn by Catherine. When Avon offered a look alike ring, I had to have one! I still enjoy wearing it.
Until Next Time,
I remember watching the wedding and riding in the car when her death was announced. A remarkable woman.
There is now a serie about Diana on the Dutch channel. Her butler speaks out there. She and Charles had a strange marriage.
What a great post Debbie! I am a big "royal" fan also, loved everything about Diana and felt very bad for her that Charles was such a scoundrel. I love all the news about Kate and William and their little ones. It's always so fascinating to me how these people live! You got married at Christmas!!, and you were a lovely bride with a handsome groom! : ) You both look so happy which is wonderful! I remember Diana's wedding VERY well. I had just given birth to my youngest son and I watched the wedding cuddling with him while he took a rare nap! I had to work the date Kate and William got married, but we had it on in our lobby area here. One of the nurses brought in tiaras and tea (even china cups!) and we had a wonderful time watching all the guests and then the wedding. Got very little work done that morning! I'll try to catch some of the shows this week on t.v. I really did admire Diana.
Yes I remember watching the wedding on TV and also remember travelling through London, a few weeks before that and seeing all the signage, which mapped out the route, that Diana would take on her way to St Pauls Cathedral. In spite of all the gaiety surrounding the wedding her marriage seems to have been very sad and her death was so untimely. On a brighter note though I think your wedding photo is really lovely! You look beautiful and your dress is stunning and your husband looks handsome and dashing! The pair of you look every bit like a royal couple! May God bless you both with numerous more happy years to come!
What a lovely post, Debbie. I also enjoyed watching the wedding and the life of Princess Diana. I was most impressed with her work with those who had special needs or who lived in poverty. I remember photos of her as she took her sons with her to volunteer with those less fortunate. By the way, it was fun to see your wedding picture! It looks like you might have been married in December?
How I loved the Princess. My mom and I attended her moving memorial a few years back. I am fascinated by her.
Thank you all, ladies, for your lovely comments! It's wonderful to know that others remember Princess Diana lovingly, like I do! I have watched the TV specials this week and enjoyed them, but they also make me sad for what might have been.
