*memories of Diana – rare picture of Diana with a pony tail*

Today’s memory of Diana comes from 1989 and features a very rare picture of her with a ‘pony tail’.

Diana is pictured taking Harry to school, and the article reports that she decided to miss her first Royal Ascot in nine years, and opted to spend her time with her sons at William’s seventh birthday party.


The man behind the photo of a young Diana and her guinea pig

In 1972 photographer John Hocknell took a photograph of a young girl posing happily with her pet guinea pig called ‘Peanuts’

That little girl was Lady Diana Spencer who was proudly showing her pet at the Sandringham show.

John was honoured at a civic reception back in 2004 for his years of work recording events in the West Norfolk area while working for the Eastern Daily Press newspaper.

He retired in 2004 age 64 and said that Norfolk was a beautiful part of the country and that he loved taking pictures there.


Prince William says no to appearing on ITV’S ‘Loose Women’

Actress and TV presenter Lisa Maxwell has revealed she failed in her attempt to get Prince William on Loose Women, claiming that he said he didn’t like the name of the show.

At a charity CD photoshoot at Clarence House in London, the actress and presenter lobbied the Prince to appear on the popular ITV1 show she co-hosts – but the 28-year-old apparently said he’d never seen it.princewilliam


Lisa claimed: “I said to him, ‘what about being on Loose Women?’ He said ‘It’s the name, it has got an awful name’.”

She added: “I’m not sure how you can never have seen it – it is on every day.”

The 46-year-old and the Prince took part in a photoshoot for the album 1969: A Key To Change, a downloadable album to mark the Centrepoint charity’s 40th anniversary.

Sara Cox, Dan Gillespie and Jools Holland also took part in the shoot.

Memories of Diana : Royal Blue Beret

Today’s memory of Diana is from the first time that Diana stepped out in a British Red Cross uniform.

She wore a navy blue two – piece of the British Red Cross – topped by a beret style hat.

Diana was attending a carol service in Bristol to the mark the diamond jubilee of the Red Cross Youth Group.


Commonwealth Games chairman gets it wrong

The chairman of the Commonwealth Games got it wrong when he thanked Princess Diana for attending Sunday’s opening ceremony.

The slip up happened at a press conference when chairman Suresh Kalmadi was giving reporter’s a games update, and quickly corrected himself by saying that Prince Charles and Camilla ( the Duchess of Cornwall) had left but appreciated all the efforts that had been made.

No people’s statue for the People’s Princess

When Princess Diana died 13 years ago, millions of Brits assumed there would be a statue erected in her memory, writes Peter Rhodes.
It never happened, partly because the powers-that-be assured us that statues were so 19th century. Since then we have seen statues erected to, among others:
* RAF hero Sir Keith Park
* The Battle of Britain pilots
*  Eric Morecambe
* Ernie Wise
* Captain Mainwaring of Dad’s Army
Last week, Ronnie Barker was added to this British bronze hall of fame with a statue in Aylesbury.
The message is plain.  Statues, far from being outdated, are incredibly popular in the 21st century. Yet all we have to remember the People’s Princess by is an unhappy confection of granite and mud in Hyde Park which is grandly styled The Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain.
A couple of private sculptures of Di have been produced but it seems there is no political will to raise an official statue in her memory.
You know, it’s almost as though the Establishment wants to forget her . . .
