Prince Harry echoed all our sentiments, when he touchingly described his late mother Princess Diana as, “Simply the best”. Prince Harry and his brother Prince William marked the 10th anniversary of their mother’s death with a poignant memorial service, which they had organised to celebrate her life. The Princes were joined by other members of the Royal family, including the Queen and their father, the Prince of Wales for the service held at The Guards Chapel in London. Diana’s sisters and brother Earl Spencer were also there with other members of the Spencer family. The Duchess of Cornwall was absent from the service, pulling out at the last minute, amidst criticism that it was inappropriate for her to attend.
Diana, Princess of Wales was the people’s Princess and the Queen of all our hearts, we will never forget her. Prince Harry moved the congregation to tears when he described her as, “the best mum in the world”. Harrods' owner Mohamed Al Fayed remembered the Princess and his son Dodi who also died in the Parish car crash, by holding a two minute’s silence at his Knightsbridge store. Meanwhile French wellwishers are calling for a statue to be built in the Princess’s memory, above the Pont D’Alma tunnel where Diana tragically lost her life.
