    God I despise the Diana love-in culture. It's pitiful and pathetic. Anybody who cried on her death (apart from those who knew her personally, obviously) needs a wake up call.

    I wouldn't cry if my favourite celebrities die, why should I care about royalty? It's a tragedy, sure, but I don't personally know them, and they don't produce anything that I use, so really, why should I care?

    If I did, it was because the children's TV programmes were off the air.

    I just remember my mum laughing about me to her friends on the phone...

    Apparently I had written about her death in my weekend diary at school, and made a big deal out of it. I had no idea what was going on, just that it was a big deal :dontknow:

    Kudos to Sky for managing to fill 3 hours of Princess Diana. That is some feat. Unless your the Mail.

    I think I was 7, too young to understand really.

    I remember going to South Ken with my mum to lay flowers for her though.

    All I really remember at the time was that some famous person died, and that apparently it was a really big deal. And I remember on the year anniversary thinking that it had been on the news pretty much constantly for the entire year and wondering why, still not really knowing who she was, but that it was a car crash which may or may not have been a murder...

    I remember being upset but only because there weren't any cartoons to watch, far too young to understand or care tbh.

    I was 12 and I remember a lot about it. I didn't cry, but I did feel solemn because I knew that it was one of those moments I'd always remember. Like 9/11, but on a smaller scale.

    I was 5 and I can't even remember knowing about it at the time tbh. But I don't really cry when people I don't know personally die anyway.

    Went downstairs to watch some weekend TV, probably around 6am or so. Then some woman in a newsroom, probably GMTV or something, said that she died. Ended up going upstairs to tell my Dad.

    Dunno how I felt about it though. Not sure if I even knew who she was, perhaps I did know as it was important that I woke my parents up.

    Being a child at the time, I bawled fiercely...at the fact that my programmes were cancelled.

    Yeah, I was heartless.

    Considering I wasn't even two, I didn't cry.
