    I was four years old when Princess Diana died, and my mum and dad were watching the funeral on television, and when they were lowering her coffin into the ground, I skipped happily into the room, then seeing the huge bouquet of flowers on top of the coffin and thinking it was a bow, I shouted "WOW! Whose is THAT present?!"


    Haha.

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

    I don't think I did. I was about 7, my sister and I wanted to watch morning kids tv (7/8am?) but all the screen said was 'Television broadcast has been cancelled in light of the death of Princess Diana' (or something to that effect) so we went to wake our parents up and my mum said "you're joking?!"..and that's as far as my memory goes.

    I was about 5/6, woke my mum up to complain about the lack of tv programmes. My dad came downstairs and asked who she was in all seriousness. I was furious about not having my cartoons!

    I was 13, I remember it very clearly. It was the summer holidays and I was inbetween Year 8 and Year 9 in high school. I had a project on Native American Indians that I had to do for summer holiday homework, so woke up and went on the computer to get some of that done.
    Then when I had finished I took the television from the dining room into my bedroom and turned it on because I wanted to watch Saved by the Bell.

    But it wasn't on....it was the news. I didn't really take in what was being said, I flicked to another channel to see what else was on....and it was the news, on ever channel.

    So I thought I'd better see why the news was on every channel! And then I found out about Diana having died.

    So I raced upstairs to my mam's room and woke her up and told her and she was like "she can't possibly be dead. I expect she's just hurt or something".

    So I turned the tv on in her bedroom to prove it to her, and she was really shocked.

    I felt a bit sad but I didn't know her personally so no I didn't cry. I did feel quite shocked by it though.

    I rang my (then) best friend up and she was really bummed out because it was her 13th birthday that day, but everybody was too shocked about Diana to be bothered about her birthday.

    I was like 7 at the time and i had other things going on in my life which were affecting me more than her death so tbh, i didn't really care (i know that's bad.) I don't remember where i was when she actually died, but i remember my Foster Carer was crying and went out and bought a statue/figurine of her lol so i know it really hurt people.

    What's the difference between TSR and Diana?

    People actually care when TSR crashes. :pierre:

    I remember I was little, like 6 or 7.

    And I was pissed off that every channel had her funeral on, and there was nothing to watch.
    At least on 9/11 BBC 2 still had cartoons
