    It was all over the radio when she died.

    And the windscreen.

    And the steering wheel.

    And the gear stick.






    Ad Infinitum.

    Nope. I remember it but I was only five so I didn't really care.

    I don't remember it at all. I was three at the time, so I wasn't aware of anything going on.

    I didn't cry, but I remember thinking that this shouldn't have happened. If she had had proper royal security then she wouldn't have died.

    I hope to God that the 6 ******s that have voted 'yes' are either trolls, or were as pissed off at her disruption of TV as I was.

    The only death I ever cried over was that of Ronnie James Dio, and his music had been a part of my life for seven years, and I revered him as godlike as far as metal and rock music goes. I had been saying for years and years that I wanted to see him live, but I could never afford to, and when he died it just hit me really hard.

    Even though i was like 5...I remember this ***** in my class crying (not calling her a ***** for crying, but simply because she's a *****).

    Diana was a lovely woman no doubt - but for some reason, we are made to feel that her life's worth more! I'm sure even she wouldn't have liked this, seeing how modest she was despite being a princess.
    I think its fair to say that those who cried when Diana died would throw a party if Camilla suddenly died.

    Alrite son, we wanted a yes or no not your life story.
    who is "we" exactly? You're not the OP.

    Besides, that was hardly a life story. The morning of 31st August 1997 is hardly my whole life. Believe me if you would like I could recount my life story but that would be a novel.

    I remember where I was but I didn't cry. For that matter, nobody around me cried, why would you? :erm:

    I was too young and I didn't even know she died until 2006 or something. I guess none of us cared that much until later on when we started noticing she was the princess who died.

    Didn't know or care who she was then, absolutely don't care now. Don't even recall feeling remotely sad when I saw the news.

    I cared much more about the assassination of the President of Serbia in 2003. I actually cried. Don't ask why, because I don't know.

    I woke up and was annoyed that they had cancelled the kids TV shows in the morning. I told my mum the same as soon as she woke up to which she said something along the lines of "Princess Diana won't have died, have you understood it wrong?"

    I was too young to feel any real emotion over it I think.

    I do remember that I was the first in my house to know because I'd gone downstairs to watch some cartoons and it was on every single channel. I went to tell my parents but they didn't believe me!

    Strangely, what I remember most vividly is Elton John's eyebrow going absolutely insane whilst he was singing at the funeral.
