The People's Princess

On this day eighteen years ago Princess Diana died in Paris, France from injuries sustained in a tragic automobile accident.  She was just 36 years old.

~ In Memory ~

Althorp, the Spenser family estate and Diana's final resting place, was on my list of places to visit when I went to England earlier this year, but we ran out of time.  Maybe next visit.  It hardly seems possible that 18 years have lapsed since her death.  I still remember the Saturday night the news of the accident came on television, and her passing in the early hours of Sunday morning.  It was such a sad ending to a young life.

While in England we did, however, see her memorial in Harrods.

And her gown display at Kensington Palace

How wonderful that William and Kate are lovingly keeping her memory alive.  He was just 15 when she died.  She would be so proud of the man he's become, and her two beautiful grandchildren.

~ Rest in Peace, Diana ~

Today I'm joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday


  1. The Princess had won everyone's heart the world over and her passing was so very tragic. I admired her so much that I wore my hair in her style for years. Your tribute is wonderful and thank you for sharing with us. Love the teacup! Diana will always be the People's Princess. Have a lovely day, Phyllis.


  2. It is indeed hard to believe it has been 18 years since Princess Diana's death. I watched her wedding, I admired her beauty, I wished her happiness - and with sadness I watched her funeral. Thank you for remembering her in such a lovely way.

  3. That was one of those days you remember, exactly where you were when you heard the news. Hugs, Martha

  4. Thanks for reminding us of Diane and her wonderful life and our memories. We were in England soon after her death and we went to the church where they married. Have a great week and I hope you take a peek at my Lemon Zest post this week!
