Today we remember Diana, Princess of Wales on the ninth anniversary of her tragic death in a Paris car crash. As hundreds of people flocked to Diana’s former home, Kensington Palace to leave flowers and tributes, it is clear that Diana, England’s Rose and our Queen of Hearts as she was affectionately known, is as popular now as she ever was. Indeed the Royal family underestimated just how popular Diana was with the British public.

Though the years pass none of us will ever forget her. With her tireless charity work and easy, carefree manner, Diana was a breath of fresh air compared to the other members of the Royal family, a true icon of our times. We will probably never know what happened the night of the tragic accident. The long awaited inquest into Diana and Dodi’s death suffered a major setback this summer when the coroner withdrew from the case. Some people believe a conspiracy was involved, others that it was the fault of the chauffeur who had been drinking heavily that night. Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed has been instrumental in trying to prove the conspiracy theory and the fact that he believes the couple were murdered. But whatever the cause we will never forget that tragic day when Diana’s life was so tragically cut short. Diana may no longer be here in body, but she is still alive in spirit in the hearts of everyone in the country. We will never forget her. May she rest in peace.

You expressed how I felt about Princess Di. I always admired her and almost think she was the "world's" princess.
