I wasn't old enough to really understand what was going on (I was five or six), and since I don't live in England it wasn't a national shocker. But it was on the news and my parents were watching it and discussing it. My mom called my sisters and I onto her bed and she calmly explained to us what had happened and that a princess had passed away. I don't think back then any of us really comprehended what had happened, or really cared. But she told us that Princess Di was a lovely woman and we'll probably remember it when we grow up.
Yes, in just a few hours it'll be the 12th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Do you still remember where you were when you heard the news?
Do you still even care?
Yeah I remember it clear as anything.
Me and my sisters ran downstairs as usual at 7am on sunday morning to watch cartoons but instead it was just breaking news about Dianas death on every channel. So straight away we ran upstairs to wake my mum who didnt believe us until she put her tv on and saw it for herself.
Then at church everyone was starngely quiet and pictures of her had been put up with flowers etc.
My sister met her once and gave her a bunch of flowers, we have it on video
I was 10. I was playing on my dad's computer, which was a really really old one with orange writing on a black screen and a word processor, a calculator and not much else - I used to write little newspapers and stuff and my dad used to print them off for me at work :P. I went downstairs for some reason and it was on the news. I remember writing a little 'article' about it, lol.
Do I care? Not really. I think she did a lot of good in the world, and death is, of course, sad, but it's time to move on.
On holiday. Camping. It's one of my only strong memories of my dad
Saying that, on another holiday, the pope died, and all the TV we saw was constant pope footage
I was at the memorial fountain last week
