Absolutely Perfect

Yes, I’m one of the millions of people around the world who watched the live coverage of the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton last April 29. Like many, I eagerly anticipated this historic event not because I like weddings or simply thought it’s romantic (though it surely was). It was because of Princess Diana. I have been a big fan of Diana since her two sons, Princes William and Harry, were still just little boys. I watched these two princes grow up and have seen William become more and more like his mother in terms of dealing with the common people and helping the needy.

Though I’m not British, I feel proud that William have chosen someone who can continue the legacy left by Diana. They do look like the perfect couple and their wedding was just fabulous. I don’t believe in fairytales but I can say that the royal wedding was truly a real-life fairytale.

England’s Rose Commemorated

Today is the 10th-year anniversary of the death of Princess Diana. For the past few months, people who claimed to be “experts” on the life and times of the late princess were coming out again to provide a “new light” or a “new perspective” on Diana’s tumultuous life and the events that led to her death. These people have come up with new biographical books this year that claim never-before-seen-or-heard stories about Princess Diana’s private life and the tragic car crash that made headlines around the world.

Personally, I do not even want to read or hear these “new” stories they’re telling. I mean, the topic has been covered so many times before and I’m tired of hearing their different “versions” of the truth. They claimed to be close to the late princess but they just ended up betraying her by giving personal information about her. Princess Diana had already suffered so much from the paparazzi and the media constantly hounding her private life. I think it’s time that they let her give the respect she long deserved and not dig up another set of nasty information they could find about her — however well-intentioned it might be.

The commemoration of the death anniversary of the People’s Princess today includes a memorial service that will be attended by her two sons, Princes William and Harry, Prince Charles, and Queen Elizabeth II herself. I have heard on the news that the service would just be a quiet one — which is a good decision if I may say so. There’s no need to make the anniversary a lavish one, with lots of fanfare and stuff. A simple memorial service will do. This is what millions of fans of Princess Diana, including myself, would prefer. For me, I will always remember her as the princess with a kind and loving heart for the poor.

This coming July 1 will be the late Princess Diana’s 46th birthday and her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry have organized a tribute concert for her. Aptly called Concert for Diana, this special concert will be held at the new Wembley Stadium on July 1 with the two princes in attendance. International artists such as Nelly Furtado, Duran Duran, Lily Allen, Elton John, and Fergie (of the Black Eyed Peas) will be performing live. Proceeds of the concert will go to several charities supported by Princes William and Harry as well as the late princess.

I think that this is really a great thing to do, what with Princess Diana’s 10th death anniversary coming up on August. It is just right that the world will celebrate Princess Diana’s life and all the wonderful things she did when she was alive. People from all over world who were touched by her compassionate heart will never forget that. I’ve always admired her for all her efforts to help the poor. I even cried that day when she died. There would be no other princess like her. She will always be my idol.
