    I don't remember, though in one of my school books I drew a lovely picture to commemorate the event.

    31/08/1997?

    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?
    US doesn't broadcast UK news that often but i heard about it and i felt it was a conspiracy.

    I woke up in my house, went downstairs, put on the telly and wondered why every single channel (all 4, maybe 5 of them) were displaying the same thing. (I was 9)

    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.

    Came downstairs in the morning into the kitchen, my mother was listening to the radio, told me about it. Can't say I really cared that much. She seemed to think it was significant though.

    I also remember a thing where people were putting candles in their windows in her memory one night, and I walked down one of the streets in the village and there were so many of them.

    Yeah, I remember that. Then, when it was the funeral, out of the 5 major channels, only Channel 4 had cartoons on.

    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 4. I had a nose bleed and my parents weren't paying attention because they were too busy watching the news.
    Ohdear. Thats sad.

    I really don't see what was so great about the woman. I have asked it SO many times, and nobody has given me a decent answer.

    The best was something about she 'symbolised a lot'. Excuse me, but, WHAT exactly?

    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.

    Saying that, on another holiday, the pope died, and all the TV we saw was constant pope footage
