10 Years On; Remembering The Death Of Princess Diana ...

Though it seems like only yesterday to we oldies, it was a full ten years ago today that the life of
Diana Princess of Wales was so suddenly and sadly, snuffed out;like a candle in the wind.

And just as clearly as we can still recall where we were and what we were doing when we first heard the numbing news of the deaths of (among others too numerous to mention), her husband Prince Charles' grandfather,
King George V1, the US President John F. Kennedy, and the many victims of the 9/11/2001 WTC tragedy -- we doubt we'll ever forget the day Diana died.

There's something else we doubt will ever leave our memories - Princess Diana's funeral - and the heartrending rendition by her friend
Sir Elton John, of his specially revised (by Bernie Taupin) version of "Candle In The Wind".

Incidentally, it's fair to warn that many may do well to keep a handkerchief handy before viewing the following video.

Rest in peace, dear Diana, 'The People's Princess'.

** UPDATE: The service of remembrance -- including young Prince Harry's tribute to his late mother.

US bugged Diana's phone on night of death crash

Mark Townsend and Peter Allen in Paris - Sunday December 10, 2006

'The Observer'

The American secret service was bugging Princess Diana's telephone conversations without the approval of the British security services on the night she died, according to the most comprehensive report on her death, to be published this week.

Among extraordinary details due to emerge in the report by former Metropolitan police commissioner Lord Stevens is the revelation that the US security service was bugging her calls in the hours before she was killed in a car crash in Paris.
