    I only vaguely remember it as well. I'm pretty sure I remember watching the funeral though.

    On the morning she died I woke up with tears in my eyes, I turned on the tv and immediately knew why.....

    Only kidding was too young didn't know who she was but as soon as I saw the message on the bottom of the tv screen whilst watching Tom and Jerry I knew something bad has happened (It just said turn over to sky news for some news about Princess Diana).

    Hmm...I was 4, so I didn't cry, but it was the first time I really understood what it meant to die, it is certainly the earliest death I remember and I still remember watching it on the news.

    Yeah i'll admit to crying, but only because a particularly scary episode of Mr Blobby had played and my sensitive 4 year old ass couldn't handle it.

      I will never cry for elitists, politicians and aristocrats.

      I remember being annoyed that there was news coverage on every channel, and no kids tv. My dad came down, saw it was news on, and said, "Who's died, the Queen Mother?".

      Also I remember watching Steptoe & Son one afternoon in 2002, which was then interrupted because of a 'special announcement'. I called that it was the Queen Mother before they actually broadcast it

      I didnt cry. I was only about 7 anyway so i was a bit young to know all about what was going on.

        I woke up really early and heard it on the news on the radio and thought it was a joke, when I told my sister she didn't believe me. Didn't cry though, my mum took us to Kesington Palace to write in the book of condolence. I think I wrote something like: "YOU WERE A VERY NICE LADY." (I was 7)

        I only cried because I missed a whole day of cartoons because of the coverage on this perosns death. And she was not a Princess.

        I was too young to car, i still don't care. Don't get me wrong it was terrible what happened to her, but lets be honest she's just another statistic to the number of victims of drink driving.
